Actress Carrie-Anne Moss is determined to age gracefully.

The 35-year-old brunette, who plays mysterious TRINITY in the MATRIX movies, refuses to let Hollywood's obsession with youth affect her life.

She says, "It's so important to be okay with your age. In my late 20s I had a slight anxiety attack about getting older. And I decided right then and there that I needed to work on the inside because I didn't want to be this tragic actress, clinging to my youth.

"I've never lied about my age. I feel more beautiful now because I feel more confident. I wouldn't want to be 20 or 30 years old again, even if somebody paid me billions of dollars."
