Is this a common way of saying "she looks 40 years old"?  and once the comment is made, u can then refer back to it using "en" -- "oui, elle en fait 40."

Were do you find that way ? the idea is "faire son age".

"Elle fait bien son age" or "elle ne fait pas son age" are used.

"elle fait 40 ans" can be used but there is another meaning for this sentence. it could be unclear. some regional people says "elle fait 10 ans" to say "she is 10".

prefer "elle parait 40 ans" and then refer back to it using "non elle en fait 30" (to refute) or "oui elle les fait bien" (to accept)
