“All My Children” Star Susan Lucci Reveals Why She Refuses To Wear A Bikini

April 13, 2018

In February, paparazzi took a photo of soap opera star Susan Lucci, who was wearing a fiery red strapless bathing suit during her vacation in Barbados, which sent social media into a frenzy.

Why, you ask?

Simply because the 71-year-old actress and TV host looked like not a day has passed since we saw her on the screen as Erica Kane on All My Children.

And even though Lucci received a lot of praise for her gorgeous figure, she told People that she refuses to wear a bikini and prefers one pieces:

I occasionally buy a bikini, but I'm too shy to wear it.

She then added:

 There are times we’re in a secluded place, and someone will come up to me on the beach. So I’m a one-piece person!

The brunette bombshell admits that it’s easy for women to find fault in themselves. But she tries to help females feel more confident and stylish with her new figure-flattering activewear line for QVC, which she called the Susan Lucci Collection.

The actress shared a word of advice:

Be your own best friend: Don’t compare yourself [to others], and don’t be so hard on yourself.

Lucci also advises others to pay attention to their bodies and listen what they tell them.

Take care of [your skin] every day. If your skin looks okay today and you take care of it, there’s a good chance it’s going to look good tomorrow.

The actress is one of several age-defying celebs in Hollywood, including 71-year-old Susan Sarandon and 72-year-old Goldie Hawn, who both look stunning at their age.

Not long ago, Lucci shared a photo of her and her mother, who looks radiant.

Maybe, good genes is a part of the age-defying secret?
