"100°F this weekend. 'Perfect,'" she wrote alongside the snap, along with the hashtags "No retouching up in here" and "no FaceTune either."

Last September, on her 48th birthday, she posted a swimsuit snap while saying she's grown more confident with age.

"It takes time to develop as a person. Sometimes in the entertainment industry I don't think we give women that chance. Men become distinguished and women become 'old news," she said. "In truth, I feel better about my body now, even after breastfeeding, gravity, etc. than I did in my 20's. I'm not riddled with insecurity as I was. I eat well and bust my butt in the gym.

"My home life and my career are doing just fine and I've learned to be thankful for what I have rather than focus on what I don't," she wrote. "To many more years of learning and growing."
