Carrie Ann Inaba, 51, on Aging: 'People Do Get More Beautiful as They Get Older'
While many in Hollywood may be seeking a fountain of youth, Carrie Ann Inaba believes true beauty starts from within.
During Wednesday’s episode of The Talk, the Dancing with the Stars judge, who is featured in PEOPLE’s 2019 Beautiful Issue alongside her cat Mimi, opened up about gracefully aging — and why beauty transcends the exterior.
Sitting alongside her co-hosts and PEOPLE staff editor Melody Chiu, Inaba said that “it’s such an honor to be included in this magazine” as a photo of herself and her cat, which is showcased in this week’s issue of PEOPLE, displayed on the screen.
“The best part though is that’s Mimi. Mimi is the star. She’s my rescue cat. She was found on the streets. Her ears cut off because she was part of one of those feral — you know where they rescue them and put them back on the street and spay them and neuter them?” she shared about the photo with her black feline. “She’s just an amazing cat and it’s such a great honor to be there featuring Mimi. I’m just her background.”
Chiu explained during the table talk that the Beautiful Issue celebrates “inner beauty” and “women who are making an impact in the world,” noting cover star Jennifer Garner.
“What’s so great about this issue is it’s about celebrating the inside beauty as opposed to just the exterior beauty. And I really do believe that,” Inaba said later during the discussion.

“As you get older, the thing that happens is, I’ve noticed I appreciate people’s beauty by what you see in their eyes — like the joy or the courage or the bravery, or when you’re sitting next to them and you feel their compassion or their warmth or their spirit of determination,” she continued.
Added Inaba: “To me that’s beauty, so I think people do get more beautiful as they get older.”
The Talk airs weekdays on CBS.
