Cindy Crawford is 50 today. Yes, 5-0.

On one hand, that seems nearly impossible because she clearly looks absolutely fantastic. But when you realize that her legendary Pepsi ad turns 24 this year, it makes a bit more sense. She was only 26 when she made soda sexy in a white tank top and cut-off shorts (and pulled up to a gas station in a red Lamborghini).

But just in case you were wondering, she still rocks cut-offs like nobody's business and proved it when she recreated this iconic ad just a few weeks ago in honor of the Super Bowl:


Okay, so we've thoroughly established that Crawford is still drop-dead gorgeous, but the great thing about her is she seems to understand the importance of inner beauty too, on top of being perpetually comfortable in her own skin — even if she admits maybe that skin is "a little looser" these days.

To celebrate the stunner's big day, here are 5 inspiring quotes from her that might make you change your own tune about aging and the true meaning of beauty.

On earning your wrinkles:

"The face you have at age 25 is the face God gave you, but the face you have after 50 is the face you earned."

On how she looks in real life compared to on magazine covers:

"Even I don't wake up looking like Cindy Crawford."

On real beauty:

"I think if people are passionate about something, it could be real estate or biochemistry, and that spark gets turned on in them, everyone's beautiful in that zone."

On confidence:

"Life goes by quickly, and I've learned that decisions made from a place of confidence—rather than one of fear—are the ones that get me to the place I want to be."
