Alyssa Milano is entering her fifties in style.

To celebrate the big 5-0, the Charm alum shared a no-makeup selfie with an empowering message to Instagram on Monday.

“It’s 50. No filter. No touch-ups. No makeup,” the actress and #MeToo activist wrote alongside an image of herself. “I will spend this day, like every day. I will move a little, love a lot, be of service and count my blessings.”

She continued, “I’m happy to be here. Right here. Right now. In this time. In my time. In your time. There’s still so much to look forward to! And you know what? It was even good to look at where I was, where I came from, how far I have come, who entered my life and who stayed.

“Thank you for all your support and birthday wishes,” she concluded. “Let’s go on.”

The post received incredible support from Milano supporters.

“Happy Birthday Beauty!” wrote model Paulina Porizkova.

Milano Who’s the boss? co-star Tony Danza wrote: “Happy Birthday!!!”

Some commented with anecdotes of how Milan inspired their lives.

“Happy Birthday Queen!” a fan commented. “Growing up I used to watch charmed reruns whenever I could even skip sometimes to watch an episode or 2 and without a doubt Phoebe was my favorite 😍 Her style, her hair changes, the progress of her character from season 1-8 I lived for YOU again!”

β€œBe blessed for that. And for all you do,” one fan wrote. “I was lucky to hear you speak at the Women’s March in Atlanta. You are appreciated.”

This isn’t the first time Milano has shared a no-makeup selfie to celebrate her birthday. In 2020, on the occasion of his 48th birthday, the star shared a similar message.

β€œIt’s 48. No filter. No makeup. Just my skin I’ve become super comfortable in,” she wrote at the time. β€œMy body crackles when I walk. My daughter asked me the other day why my butt is so [jiggly]. Sometimes I forget things. I’m tired all the time.”

“But overall, I’m just grateful for this life. My life. If someone told me that for the next life, I could choose who I would come back to, I would choose myself again. Even with the grief I I endured. Like the kintsugi, I was broken, mended and broken once again,” she continued, referencing the Japanese tradition of pottery mending. “We are all resilient.”
