Alyssa Milano steps into her 50s with style.

To celebrate the big 5-0, the Charmed alum shared a makeup-free selfie with a powerful message on Instagram on Monday.

“This is 50. No filter. No touch up. No makeup,” the actress and #MeToo activist captioned a photo of herself. “I will spend this day like every day. I will move a little, love a lot, serve and count my blessings.”

She continued: “I’m happy to be here. Here. Now. At this time. In my time. In your time. There is still so much to look forward to! And you know what? back to where I’ve been, where I came from, how far I’ve come, who came into my life and who stayed.

“Thank you for all your support and birthday wishes,” she concluded. “Let’s continue.”

The post welcomed an incredible amount of support from Milano’s followers.

“Happy Birthday beautiful!” wrote supermodel Paulina Porizkova.

From Milan Who is the boss? co-star Tony Danza wrote, “Happy Birthday!!!”

Some commented with anecdotes about how Milano inspired their lives.

“Congratulations Queen!” one fan noticed. “Growing up I always watched reruns of Charmed, every chance I could get even skipped sometimes to watch an episode or two and no doubt Phoebe was my favorite 😍 Her style, her hair changes, the progress in her character from seasons 1-8 I still lived for YOU!”

“Bless you for this. And for everything you do,” one admirer wrote. “I was lucky enough to hear you speak at the Women’s March in Atlanta. You are appreciated.’

This isn’t the first time Milano has shared a makeup-free selfie to celebrate her birthday. In 2020, on her 48th birthday, the star shared a similar message.

“This is 48. No filter. No make-up. Just my skin that I’ve become super comfortable in,” she wrote at the time. “My body makes crackling noises when I walk. My daughter recently asked me why my butt is like this [jiggly]. Sometimes I forget things. I’m tired all the time.”

“But overall I’m just thankful for this life. My life. If someone told me I get to choose who I come back with for the next life, I’d choose myself again. Even with the grief I’ve endured Just like kintsugi – I’ve been broken open and mended and broken again,” she continued, referring to the Japanese tradition of repairing pottery. “We’re all resilient.”
