Back in 2010, the then 51-year-old Rossi told More Magazine:

“I feel more at peace than I did 10 years ago. I’ve realized that everything around me is a source of teaching. This is aging, and I enjoy it.”

“My hair started turning gray when I was 12 and was salt-and-pepper by the time I hit 20. I never colored it, because I knew it was my best asset.”

She revealed to the Sunday Times the secret to her health and beauty regimen:

“I scrub my skin once a week with olive oil and sugar. I eat an avocado a day and organic meat and fish.”
