Age-defying actress celebrates 60th birthday with NSFW photoshoot

It's a tragic truth that society teaches us to be ashamed of our bodies - especially as we get older.

Thankfully though, every once in a while, a celebrity comes along to remind us that we can still have that wow factor at any and every stage of our lives.

Actress Maribel Guardia was the woman to do that recently. The Costa Rican-Mexican star celebrated her 60th birthday at the end of May with a jaw-dropping photoshoot that collected hundreds of thousands of likes on social media.

Check out the stunning video Maribel uploaded to Instagram: 

Posing for the photographer, Maribel covered her naked body with a pattern of blue and turquoise stickers and put her hands over her head.

Soon after, she uploaded a video of the steamy photo shoot, which took place in a swimming pool, that received almost 900,000 views.

Of course, fans flooded the comment section with birthday wishes and comments about how fabulous she looked.

The actress began her career in 1978 when she was named Miss Costa Rica. She went on to represent her country at the Miss Universe 1978 beauty pageant, before accepting an offer from Televisa producer Sergio Bustamante to develop a career in Mexico.

She has since starred in multiple telenovelas, released a series of albums in the Norteño music genre and modelled for a wide variety of magazines.

Thanks for showing us that age is just a number, Maribel!
