Not only have these two dazzled fans on the red carpet with their hair, but they’ve spoken about why embracing their gray hair has been life-changing for them.

Mirren said she originally kept her hair because she’s “lazy!” She said to People, “I did it because I’m lazy. Honestly, I’m so lazy about my hair! It’s a lot of work and as wonderful as many hairdressers are, I don’t want to sit in a salon for hours. I just can’t be bothered with that.” She added, “Embrace the gray or the white or whatever it is.”

As for MacDowell, she’s talked about how much she loves her gray hair, and loves to show it off. “At the very beginning of quarantine, my hair started growing and every time my kids would see me, they kept telling me I looked badass with my gray hair,” she said to Vogue. “My managers had actually said to me, ‘It’s not time.’ And I said, ‘I think you’re wrong, and I’m going to be more powerful if I embrace where I am right now. It’s time because in two years I’m going to be 65. If I don’t do it now, I won’t have the chance to be salt and pepper. I always wanted to be salt and pepper!’”
