Berlin (AP) - According to actress Maria Furtwängler (52), one should take the aging with humor and compassion.

The aging process was "a ruthless", she told the German Press Agency on Tuesday in Berlin, where she presented a wax figure of her "Tatort" Commissioner at Madame Tussauds.

One knows that one can not conserve appearance. Every day brings a loss of youthfulness, said Furtwängler. This can only be seen with humor and compassion. At some point she will be able to say about her wax figure: "That's what I looked like."

As an investigator Charlotte Lindholm Furtwängler solves since 2002 criminal cases in Hanover and in villages and small towns between the Harz and the North Sea. She also works for women on television and works together with the University of Rostock.

Their study showed that women are less likely to be on TV and are quickly disappearing from the screen when they turn 35. This resulted in action impulses. Next year will be measured again. "And I think we will see changes. I'm very confident about that, "said Furtwängler.
