Celebrating her day, she tried on pants she used to fit in, in her twenties. “I have kept these throwback True Religion jeans in my closet for 14 yrs (I’m not exaggerating!). I figured that since I’m in the final hours of my 30’s I’d give them another try, and hello 40, so nice to meet you,” Jessica wrote on her Instagram timeline, sharing a mirror selfie of herself in the denim pants.
Now, the singer and actress has said she was stressed about turning 40, because it took her a while to accept her age.
"That was a really random thing, because I haven’t put jeans on through the whole time, I’ve been in sweats. I am like embracing the quarantine life, yeah. I freaked out two months before I turned 40, not knowing what that age would even mean anything to me but then it’s like 41, 42, I’ve never calculated my age until now. I’m accepting it slowly,” she said during an appearance on The Jess Cagle show.
