Times Have Changed

Modern-Day Stars Provide a Hipper, Hotter Spin on Some of History's Most Iconic Female Images.

Anna Whistler
AGE 67 1871

Ann-Margret
AGE 67

In Portrait of the Artist's Mother, painter James Abbott McNeill Whistler immortalized his mom as a woman who looks "depressed, lonely, austere and lifeless," says Ann-Margret. "I thought it would be fun to show a 67-year-old in 2008: a healthy, happy, mischievous, confident woman who is certainly not lonely!" Especially when she's working out. Alongside her husband of 41 years, actor Roger Smith, she works out three times a week in their home gym ("We call it the torture chamber"), and once a week "we go hiking with dancers I have worked with and friends," she says. Compared to the stark 19th-century lifestyle of Whistler's mother, today "it's a different world. People are exercising and eating better," says Ann-Margret. "I just want to be the best that I can be at whatever age I am."
