‘Emily in Paris’ star offers advice to American women on aging

“Emily in Paris” star Philippine Leroy-Beaulieu has some beauty advice for American women.

“Don’t do too much stuff to your face. Just be very gentle with that, just accept it,” the actress, 59, told Page Six in a new interview.

“Little things can be OK, but as soon as you try to do too much and don’t accept it, it looks kind of … hmm,” she added.

The French star also encouraged older women to embrace aging over fighting against it.

“Just be happy about being wiser. I love it. I think it gives me a peace that I didn’t have before,” Leroy-Beaulieu explained.

“That’s something we should really enjoy instead of trying to be what we were 30 years ago, 20 years ago. I mean, it doesn’t make sense. It’s great to just enjoy what we have and I think it gets better and better.”

Leroy-Beaulieu told us that getting older has also given her clarity on what is truly important – like “having good relationships” with people.

“I don’t feel the grudges I used to feel,” she shared. “I just forgive people, I just move on. Life is precious.”

Life certainly is sweet for the actress right now as she recently appeared in Season 5 of “The Crown.” She’s also reprising her role as fan favorite Sylvie Grateau in Season 3 of “Emily in Paris,” which drops Dec. 21 on Netflix.

Leroy-Beaulieu promises that this season has “a lot of twists and turns” and is more “complicated and funnier” than the last one.

“We’ve got more in-depth with the characters,” the César Award nominee teased. “So we get to see a lot of different things. And Sylvie’s trajectory in this season, there’s a lot of twists and turns, and a lot of surprises.”

One thing that won’t change, however, is the fabulous outfits that both Sylvie and lead character Emily Cooper (played by Lily Collins) don each episode, courtesy of costume designers Patricia Field and Marylin Fitoussi.

“I’ve never had a part where the wardrobe was a character in itself,” Leroy-Beaulieu explained to Page Six. “I mean, this is what happens here. So it’s another character. We have to play with that character, too. We’re really happy about it and it’s great. We have a lot of fun, and a lot of work for the costume designer!”

As for whether Sylvie will continue canoodling with photographer Erik DeGroot (played by Søren Bregendal) this season? Leroy-Beaulieu couldn’t confirm or deny.

“[My character] has a lot of different boyfriends,” she teased. “You’ll see!”
