SENIOR SERVICE (702) 727-5008 by Matilda Charles If you're a long-time movie buff, you'll recall Jeanne Cooper from films such as "Redhead from Wyoming" opposite Maureen O'Hara, and''The Man from the Alamo," with Glenn Ford. If you like the soaps, you know Jeanne as the irrepress- ible Katherine Chancellor of "The Young and the Rest- less.'; In a recent story line, Katherine decided to have minor facial cosmetic surgery. This ties in with Jeanne's decision to do ditto. As with a previous facial procedure, this one will also be done on screen. Jeanne is the mother of three sons and a daughter (Corbin Bernsen, the star of"L.A. Law," is one of her kids) and the grandmother of four. She acknowledges that she's a "lady of a certain age." But she says, "Whatever your birth certificate says is not as important as how you feel about yourself. I'm not having the cosmetic surgery be- cause the world around us thinks older people have be- come irrelevant. I'm having it because I want to look better. I like who I am," she says. "I just want to look my best. I feel I deserve it." Asked what she thinks of the way television dramas, both day and prime-time, treat older women, Cooper laughed. "Their perception of us is that we don't exist as fully functioning human beings. Sometimes they write us as being a little short in the mental department, as if they assume older people must always lose their mental abilities as they gain years. This is absolute nonsense, but that doesn't seem to deter them. Also, why is that you can have an older man in a romantic situation with a much younger woman, but if you have a story about an older woman involved with a younger man -- which makes good biologi- cal sense, by the way -- people are horrified? By not acknowledging that older women are capable of romance, they're saying we're not complete. I' m not saying that older women have to have romances; that should be a personal choice. But I do say that no one should presume we're not capable of romance, or anything else we choose to do." OHental Futons Furniture Gifts A Beautiful... ! 997 Oriental Calendar!! & a Letter Opened!
