Closer Magazine sends us a lot of promotional stuff. Their readership skews quite older because the celebrities they interview are usually in their 60s and above. Think Kenny Rogers, Lindsay Wagner, Laurie Metcalf, Glenn Close, etc. (Sidenote: Laurie Metcalf is 62 can you believe it?!) So this interview with Christie Brinkley is aimed at their audience, particularly because Christie has made a cottage industry out of looking younger than she is (with extensive help from plastic surgeons, only partially acknowledged). It’s more of the same from Christie in this interview, but I like to talk about her so here it is. Note that she didn’t get the cover of this one, on newsstands now.

“I’d been wanting to move back to New York, so I just got myself an apartment,” she tells Closer. “Don’t hesitate. Just get out there and go! That’s what I’m doing.”
It sounds like a cliché, Christie admits, but she’ll actively be counting her blessings more in 2018. “An attitude of gratitude is the first thing people see when you walk in the door,” she enthuses. Besides, “there’s so much to be grateful about, and it’s so much fun to be happy!”
I would say Christie definitely cares what people think, given all the ways she seeks validation, especially on social media. I get it though, I mean I still do full hair and makeup every day and I would also say I care less about what people think as I …
