The 48-year-old actress refuses to accept that people of a certain age are no longer sexy and insists she doesn’t let social pressures rule their way of life.
Tracee told W magazine, “There’s the idea that you reach a certain age and you are no longer viable, you are no longer sexy. You are no longer worth pursuing your dreams, trying new things or taking risks. And I don’t agree with that.
“I’m 48 years old and I feel like the sexiest I’ve ever been. However, our cultural status quo, patriarchy whatever you want to call it, has told us that a certain type of person has more control over what I should and shouldn’t do. “

Tracee previously revealed that she will never get rid of her old clothes.
The actress “hates” getting rid of her old clothes and she still wears things she first bought decades ago.
She said, “There will always be dishes in my sink and too many clothes in my house.
“I hate throwing clothes away.
“I still have a beautiful Norma Kamali slip dress from when I was 22. I wore it to my brother’s wedding three years ago. My clothes are a reflection of myself. “
The actress considers her hair to be her “greatest form of expression” and enjoys experimenting with the way she styles her curls.
She said, “I could record my journey of self acceptance through my hair.
“It’s my greatest form of expression.
“Sometimes it’s big, sometimes it’s small, sometimes it’s elegant, despite gravity, electric … I don’t think there’s anything as fancy as a bun slicked back, but when my hair is loose it has a mind of its own. “
