Cher thinks that being “happy” keeps her looking young.
The 76-year-old pop icon, who is currently dating music executive Alexander Edwards, 37, was asked what the secret to her youthful complexion is and admitted that she had no idea other than having a cheerful demeanor.
She told ExtraTV: “I don’t know, I mean, I’m just happy! I kind of just [wake up like this], yeah!”
Before dating Alexander Edwards, Cher was previously married to late musicians Sonny Bono and Gregg Allman, with whom she shares sons Chaz, 53, and Elijah, 46, respectively. She’s also had relationships with Warren Beatty, Val Kilmer, Tom Cruise, and others.
The ‘Believe’ songstress, explained on the Kelly Clarkson Show last year, that even though her current relationship might seem “kind of ridiculous” because of the 40-year age gap, it still works in “real life” because of how well they get along and noted that older men didn’t seem to be too keen on her.
She said: “On paper, it’s kind of ridiculous but in real life, we get along great. He’s fabulous, and I don’t give men qualities that they don’t deserve. But he’s very kind, he’s very smart. He’s very talented and he’s really funny so, and I think he’s quite handsome.
“Older men just didn’t like me all that much,” Cher said. “Do you know what I mean? I have had a couple boyfriends that were hovering around my age, but they just didn’t like me for some reason. And maybe younger men don’t care if you’re funny or outrageous and want to do stupid things, and you have the strong personality. I’m not giving up my personality for anybody, okay?”
