Tony Danza is another year older!

While appearing on Today with Hoda & Jenna on April 18, the actor, who turns 73 on April 21, opened up about his birthday and how he views aging.

After being asked by Hoda Kotb how he was feeling about his special day, Danza responded, "Oh, you know. I think as we get older, they become less and less important. I’m not really, you know … it’s another day."

"It’s a tipping point I think, you know what I mean?" he continued. "You know how at 50, you start waking up with injuries? You go to bed, you’re fine, you wake up with a broken leg? 60 you get very self-reflective. ‘What have I done, what haven’t I done? What should I do?’ "

"70 is seminal. [71] wasn’t bad, [72] wasn’t bad. [73] feels tipping," Danza added. "You know, that’s the age old people are."

During his time on the Today broadcast, Danza also discussed teaching acting to kids with The Stars of Tomorrow Project.

"I’m a big believer that we, as a society, we’ve totally advocated any responsibility for nurturing our children. There’s no more family hour or any of that stuff," the Who's the Boss? star said. "So we started a teen acting program, the slogan of which is, 'Teen acting: 'cause when you teach a kid how to act, you teach a kid how to act!' "

"So we have a couple of levels of acting, free acting, voice, dance," Danza continued. "We're introducing tap dancing. This semester we have a wellness component. Take them shopping and teach them how to cook."

"It’s just a wonderful [program] and an ensemble building. One of the most important things, [because] so much of today is about the self," he added.

When asked by Jenna Bush Hager why it is so important for him to nurture children who aren't his, Danza replied, "Because they are our own! They are all our kids, you know what I mean?"
