Rizzoli & Isles Star Angie Harmon Shares Swimsuit Photo Throwback

She’s 51 and absolutely fabulous.

Rizzoli & Isles Star Angie Harmon is reminding fans and followers just how little she has changed over the years. Harmon, who played Jane Rizzoli on the show, posted a throwback bikini snap from a photoshoot. The picture shows Harmon posing in a brightly patterned bikini with matching necklaces, for what looks like an advertisement in a Swedish magazine. "This girl is gorgeous," a fan commented. Harmon's approach to health and wellness is unique—here's how she does it.


Gluten-Free Diet


Harmon focuses more on diet than structured exercise, preferring to stay active throughout her day. "I don't have [a fitness regimen] except for running to the gate at the airport," she says. "I do have a very healthy diet and try to be mostly sugar-free, and now I'm also trying to be gluten-free."


No-Makeup Makeup

Harmon prefers a low-key look when it comes to beauty. "I don't like to wear a lot of makeup, but when I do, I try to keep it minimal," she says. "Bobbi Brown Tinted Moisturizer: The coverage is amazing, but still light, and the smell is fantastic. Clinique High Lengths Mascara: The wand is my favorite because it really separates and lengthens my lashes. Armani eyeliner, any color. And bareMinerals Stroke of Light Eye Brightener is a necessity."


Prioritizing Motherhood


Harmon never found it difficult to focus on her family after having children. "I had a job and career, but then I became a mom and that became my top priority," she says. "After Rizzoli & Isles ended in 2016, I told the girls I wouldn't work on a show that took me away from them like that. And I haven't. I never really saw myself as a mom. But my girls are the coolest people I've ever met — hilarious, beautiful, all three of them. They are at the age — teenagers — where everyone else goes, 'Ugh.' And I think to myself, mine are kind of amazing."


Hair Care Tips

Harmon's beautiful hair is the result of minimal processing. "My hairdresser, David Garner, who is all about vitamins and hair masks, has always told me to use as little heat as possible, which helps keep my hair in good condition," she says. "I've learned how to get a lot out of my hair without having to use much heat. For years, I've used really solid hair conditioners and masks and I always wait as long as possible to wash it. My hair has definitely changed as I've gotten older, but it looked and felt the absolute best when I was pregnant with my daughters. It was so thick—I had so much hair then. It was just glorious."


No Botox

Harmon has no interest in Botox, but understands why others choose to have it. "We are all here fighting to be the best version of ourselves," she says. "Personally, I don't want to look dramatically different or like I've had anything done. I just want to always look myself, and natural. It's not that I'm opposed to any of this, and I know that it can be done so that you still look like you and pretty. It's just that I'm not quite there yet… I believe in getting a lot of sleep, eating healthy, drinking water—things like that. I know when I'm tired and haven't been able to take care of myself that I don't look my best."
