Alexa Chung felt ''exhausted'' when she turned 30 and the after-effects of partying got worse.
Alexa Chung felt ''exhausted'' when she turned 30.
The brunette beauty has just reached the milestone age and although she enjoyed celebrating, she admits entering a new decade has made her feel old.
She said: ''Turning 30's been good in the sense that I've had three parties. But each one had a two-day hangover attached so, yes, I'm old.
''Turning 30 felt inevitable. I woke up and said out loud, 'I'm 30' and then went to a Turkish baths in the East Village [of New York].
''Actually, you know when you wake up from a big night out and think, 'that was tough'? I woke up on my 30th birthday and felt the fatigue of my twenties set in. I sort of exhaled and thought, 'What a trip?' I just felt a bit exhausted. Oh man, I've packed a lot in.''
Alexa enjoyed seeing her friends and family together at her birthday party because it was such a surreal occasion, and she admits to feeling sorry for her friend Harry Styles after seeing the level of attention he received at the bash.
She wrote in Grazia magazine: ''The London party was like speed-dating my friends - I talked to everyone for about 90 seconds. But I loved seeing my family, especially my parents, in the same room with my friends. It was really funny to watch Harry Styles high-fiving my mother.
''My Instagram was flooded with his mug next day. Poor guy, must spend the whole time feeling like he's Mickey Mouse at Disney World.''
'Smalls Change (Meditations Upon Ageing)' arrives in April.
The two awards have made for a great 72nd birthday present for the country music icon.
