"Ugly Betty" alum, Vanessa Williams recently turned 57 and decided to celebrate her big day by first posting a morning selfie in bed.


Age 57 has nothing on the actress and talented singer, who looked flawless in a fresh-faced image. Vanessa, who is currently in Europe, wore a subtle grin, and her ruffled hair touched lightly on her face.

Though the picture was taken in bed, with the white sheets serving as the background, the actress's eyes were wide open, and she curved her hands to hold her jaw. The celebrant seemed excited for the new year and expressed gratitude to well-wishers and loved ones. According to her:

"Good morning, 57! Another year on this wondrous planet that continually surprises me... I cherish all the endless support I am given, and I am grateful for the #more..."


Lots of birthday wishes filled the comment section, and many fans celebrated Vanessa's big day. As the 57-year-old is aging gracefully, and keeping her good looks, the 1983 Miss America has some words of wisdom which she garnered from her years of experience.

The "Ugly Betty" star said that her best revenge had been a successful lifestyle, including career and self-realization.


She's been married three times and is currently with her third husband, a former accountant, Jim Skrip, whom she first met during an Egypt tour. During an interview, she revealed what her different marriages taught her.

The mother of four also talked about how exciting motherhood is, especially since she had her first child as a young adult. In her words:

"I believe what you expect from a marriage depends on how you were raised...I've been married three times, and all my husbands are good men..."


When describing her first marriage to her music manager, Ramon Hervey II, Vanessa said that her marriage wasn't a top priority. Her kids were, followed by her career, then marriage.

With her second man, former NBA star, Rick Fox, proximity and age barrier were the issues. She was older, and their profession caused them to be miles apart nearly every day.

Regardless of her past, the "Ugly Betty" star said that her best revenge had been a successful lifestyle, including career and self-realization.
