Got A Girl Crush On: Maude (Ruth Gordon) from “Harold and Maude”
I hate the idea of aging. Getting old, losing control, becoming dependent…but if I have any say in how I deal with the march of time, I want to be a bitchin’ old lady like Maude. She defies the cultural norms of what is expected of an “old lady” by being brash, sassy, stealing motorcycles, and not to mention having a love affair with a man at LEAST 60 years her junior. Maude was the original cougar. Get it girrrrrrrl!!
She reminds us all that you only live once and you might as well live big.
