Naomi Watts took to Instagram on Wednesday (June 8th) to address aging and the stigma around menopause.
“Does the word menopause freak you out?” she wrote alongside a selfie. “It did me… But, why? It’s just a natural phase of life and something half the population will be directly affected by and the other half will feel indirectly (so please stick around … even the dudes!).”
The I Heart Huckabees star shared that she struggled to find answers about menopause in her late 30s, right when she was “finally ready” to have a family. “How could I figure this out when no one was talking? I was earlier to it than my peers,” she said.
