There’s a certain confidence that comes with this landmark birthday

Left: Featureflash/Dreamstime.com; Right: Jaguarps/Dreamstime.com

Whether you call it the big 5-0, the 11th anniversary of your 39th birthday, or just “that unspeakable birthday,” there’s something intimidating about turning 50. But turning 50 doesn’t have to be a taboo subject, and these celebrity quotes about this landmark birthday prove it.

After all, 50 is called the “golden anniversary” for a reason. You’re reaching your golden years! It’s that time in your life when the stresses of trying to fit in, work your way up the corporate ladder, and raise a family are behind you. But you’re still young enough to travel the world, explore your passions, and find your inner confidence. Sounds like a win-win situation to us.

In honor of turning 50, we collected 15 of the best celebrity quotes about this achievement. Now, not every celebrity feels amazing about this particular revolution around the sun. Madonna, in her classic defiant style, entered her 50th year with a big attitude. Julia Roberts, on the dawn of her 50th birthday, even called out the subtle sexism of marking this birthday with any particular significance. But others like J.K. Rowling, Michelle Obama, and Jennifer Aniston recognize this birthday as a chance to live a long, healthy, and happy life.

Whether you call it the big 5-0, the 11th anniversary of your 39th birthday, or just “that unspeakable birthday,” there’s something intimidating about turning 50. Rowling, Michelle Obama, and Jennifer Aniston recognize this birthday as a chance to live a long, healthy, and happy life.

Jennifer Aniston

"I don’t think life stops after 50. If anything, it gets more and more exciting. For some reason, we don’t honor or pay respect to aging. It’s something that we look at as a negative, and yet every single person on this planet does it."

Viola Davis

"Turning 50 is making me reflect on my life in a way that's more compassionate and forgiving. I'm able to almost accept the old me."

Marcia Gay Harden

Jaguarps/Dreamstime.com

"I celebrated by throwing a big bowl on the pottery wheel, then going for a water ski at the lake on our property in the Catskills, and that night, skinny-dipping under the stars. Just being free and joyful. And that's how I felt about turning 50."

Nicole Kidman

"I’m just really going, ‘OK, this is my life,’ and I’m very, very happy to be 50. I think that’s what happens with birthdays once you get to a particular age, you’re just like, 'Yay, OK, here we go!'"

Matt LeBlanc

"It sucks. There’s no way to sugarcoat it. You kind of go, wow, where does the time go? I feel like I just turned 40."

Elle Macpherson

Featureflash/Dreamstime.com

“I feel very secure within myself — strong, happy and motivated. Hopefully I’ve gained some wisdom over the years. And I have a sense of humor about my mistakes. I’ve accepted that I don’t always get it right, but it’s not the end of the world.”

Madonna

Makarenko/Dreamstime.com

"F**k you. I'm 50. That's what I'm going to say when I turn 50. Sorry."

Julianne Moore

Denis Makarenko/Dreamstime.com

"The thing about 50 is that you've clearly reached a point where you have more of your life behind you than ahead of you, and that's a very different place to be in. You're thinking, 'I've done most of it.' I don't like that feeling. But it makes you evaluate your life and go, 'Am I doing what I want to do? Am I spending my time the way I want?'"

President Barack Obama

Marty Jean Louis/Dreamstime.com

"I'm old enough where hopefully I've made enough mistakes I'm not going to repeat. And I'm still young enough that I can appreciate that wisdom."

Michelle Obama

Dwong19/Dreamstime.com

Joan Rivers

Laurence Agron/Dreamstime.com

"Looking 50 is great... if you're 60!"

Julia Roberts

“There’s nothing different about this birthday than any other one. Really, people? Are we still in that space? Did anyone ever go over this with George Clooney or Brad Pitt before their 50th birthdays?"

J.K. Rowling

Sbukley/Dreamstime.com

"My mother died at 45... You've got to celebrate every year you're here in good health. What's the alternative to aging? It's checking out. I'd rather still be here. I still have children to raise, books to write."

Emma Thompson

Jaguarps/Dreamstime.com

“If you look after yourself and you’re healthy, then you’ll have the energy to do things. But not to recognize getting older for what it is? I do think the infantilization of our generation is one of the huge issues of our time. People wanting to be 35 when they’re 50 makes me think: Why? Why don’t you be 50 and be good at that? And also embody the kinds of choices that are sustainable at that age.”

Oprah Winfrey

Woody: My kids look to me to see what NOT to do

Woody Harrelson believes he is a great example to his kids of what not to do.

Woody Harrelson believes he is a great example to his kids of what not to do.

The 'Hunger Games' star has three daughters - Deni Montana, 19, Zoe Giordano, 16 and Makani Ravello, five - with wife Laura Louie and says he doesn't give them advice because he doesn't have all the answers.

He said: "I think I've been an incredible example to my kids of what not to do. And I try not to preach about diet any more either. I used to do that because I see so many people eating s**t. Now I just let people see my energy and how strong I stay."

Woody stars as alcoholic former winner Haymitch in 'The Hunger Games' about teenagers forced to fight to the death on TV for entertainment, and admitted his training regime included "going on an alcohol bender".

He said: "I'd like to say I did some vigorous training but I didn't. However, I did go on an alcohol bender - that helped. Drink bad, eat good! I eat only raw food when I'm working because I need my energy so there are some areas where I wasn't being true to my character because Haymitch would eat anything."

Woody turned 50 last year and is slowly coming to terms with reaching the milestone.

He explained to Metro newspaper: "I want to say turning 50 is just a number but let's face it, I can no longer make the contention that I'm getting old. I can just say that I'm old. On the other hand, I feel great and until, I start to fall apart, I probably won't be too worried."
