Renée Zellweger is getting better — and happier — with age.

In a new interview with The Sunday Times, the actress, 53, shared how she has learned to accept getting older and how she enjoys aging each and every year.

Noting that she "loved" turning 50 back in 2019, Zellweger said the milestone "felt like a whole new beginning without the nonsense, the point where you can stop listening to all those voices in your head and all those expectations and projections people have of you and become more authentically yourself."

"Like, good luck all you suckers out there because you've got to survive a lot to get to my age, and I've earned my power and voice," she continued.

(AP) — When former President Donald Trump took the stage before a crowd of more than 5,000 young conservative activists in Tampa this weekend, he received the rock star's welcome he’s grown accustomed to over the seven years in which he’s reshaped the Republican Party.

Ron DeSantis who had the crowd on its feet as he headlined the day's program at Turning Point USA’s annual Student Action Summit. © Provided by Associated Press Ryan Malone, right, of Venice, Fla.

"As long as we buy into the whole idea that society is obsessed with youth, then we perpetuate it," Zellweger added. "Okay, so you want to look good? So go get your hair done or your skin fixed or have that day at the spa or whatever it is that makes you feel great. But let who you are and what you contribute and how you represent yourself at that age lead."

"All those ads telling us we don't need to look our real age if we just buy all their creams and their fixes and all that garbage they want to sell us? I'm like, 'What, you're saying I'm not valuable any more because I'm 53?' Is that what you're saying?" she said in her interview with the Times.

"There is a big difference between being your absolute best, most vibrant self and wanting to be what you're not," continued Zellweger.

She added: "To be vibrant and beautiful you must embrace your age, otherwise you are living apologetically and to me that's not beautiful at all."

Zellweger previously opened up to PEOPLE about how physicality shapes her acting in an interview at the For Your Consideration event for her NBC miniseries in May.

"It's just another tool really, isn't it, to have the presentation match the narrative," she explained. "I enjoy it because it makes it easier to transcend when you're telling the story on the day. I love it because it feels like a safe space to hide."

"I like [transforming myself] because the process is, when you're preparing, it's sort of a series of goals that you're trying to create this space, where you can tell the story, and that's such a big part of it," added Zellweger. "And when it starts to come together, you can just tick the boxes as you get closer and closer to what it is, to creating this space to tell the story. So it just feels like, I don't know, that you've achieved what you've set out to do as it starts to come together and it's very helpful."
