Celebrities live a life of glory and fame. Yet, it doesn't come easy. They put their heart and soul into every project they take on and leave no stone unturned in nailing them. Often, such celebs save themselves a permanent spot in their fans’ hearts and hope that their star remains in the industry for as long as possible. Speaking of which, here we have a list of some of the oldest stars who are still thriving.
Paul Hogan – 82
Sometimes, it only takes one big break to catapult a person to immense stardom. The same was the case with the Australian actor and superstar Paul Hogan. It was the title role that he played in the movie Crocodile Dundee that raised him to the status of a superstar.
His entrance into the public eye was when he appeared in New Faces; a TV show where he grabbed everyone’s attention by ridiculing the judges in response to the fact that the judges were making fun of the contestants. Hogan is now in his early eighties and is still as active and hardworking as ever. In 2020, he gave his fans a treat when he reprised his iconic role in The Very Excellent Mr. Dundee.
Johnny Mathis – 86
There is nothing greater than having a passion for something, and it is the very thing that can even lead individuals to achieve greatness in life. Talking about following one’s passion, the American jazz singer John Royce Mathis did the exact same. The world-famous songwriter and singer once sang in a church choir.
Destiny had bigger things planned for him, and it all began when he appeared for an audition in 1955. Eventually, he earned himself a recording contract, resulting in the super-hit chart-topping song 'Chances Are' in 1957. The singer, who is in his late eighties, has taken up acting by appearing in the documentary The Last Old Master in 2021.
Richard Simmons – 74
It is nice to see the growing acceptance of a healthy lifestyle amongst people as time passes by. Nowadays, every person has their own gym routine and their own gym instructor, but things weren’t always the same. Back in the day, the famous fitness instructor Richard Simmons united all together.
He was a popular face in the fitness industry in the '70s and '80s. His famous cassette series Sweatin’ to the Oldies has helped many people adopt fitness as a lifestyle. He also trained people one on one in his gym 'The Slimmons.' After getting thousands of people in shape, Simmons is now enjoying his seventies in his plush mansion, away from the limelight.
Pat Boone – 88
A good voice is a big gift from nature as one can accomplish a lot with it. One of the most popular people who have been blessed with this gift is Pat Boone. He is the acclaimed singer who delivered countless hit pop songs in the '50s.
Boone knew the true potential of his voice and used it to its full potential. He did not restrict himself to singing only but became a popular voice on radio and TV shows too. His career as a singer began in 1955 and made him one of the biggest music sensations of the time. Later on, he also ventured into acting. He continues to work every now and then, even being in his late eighties.
Marla Gibbs – 91
The entertainment industry is lucky to catch Marla Gibbs’s cheeky spirit and sardonic wit. Who could ever forget her iconic role as the wisecracking housemaid Florence Johnston? She entered the '70s scene with a bang and hadn’t left since—five decades later.
Over the years, Gibbs channeled her versatility into many things as a comedian, writer, and producer. The Emmy-nominated veteran appeared onscreen, first in films like Black Belt Jones and Preacher Man before she started working on TV in the groundbreaking CBS show The Jeffersons. Her increasing fame eventually landed her, the sitcom 227, which she hosted for five seasons. In 2021, the actress finally earned her star on the Walk of Fame for her achievements in television.
Tony Goldwyn – 62
Like stars of today who debuted in slasher films, Tony Goldwyn stepped into Hollywood in the gory 1986 installment of Friday the Thirteenth franchise—a fan favorite but not enough to break him into the mold. Nevertheless, things changed when he starred alongside Demi Moore and Patrick Swayze in the widely successful 1990 romance picture Ghost. That movie was Goldwyn’s first taste of the mainstream.
After that, the actor appeared in strings of films like The Last Samurai, Divergent, and the television series Scandal, where he also directed a couple of episodes. His next project, The People We Hate at the Wedding, is still in post-production, but while waiting, fans can watch him in the sports drama King Richard.
There are celebrities that earn their fame through acting, some do it with their singing voice, their comedy, or even simply by being rich and well-connected. Jocelyn Wildenstein got her celebrity status due to her extensive cosmetic procedures. Born in 1940, the Swiss socialite married billionaire art dealer Alec Wildenstein, introducing her to the tightest high society circles.
At Some point, Jocelyn began subjecting herself to plastic surgery, which changed her face dramatically and earned her the nickname "The Lion Queen", and "The Bride of Wildenstein". Several decades later, her marriage may have dissolved (in quite a scandalous manner), but the surgeries remained and even multiplied, even after she filed for bankruptcy in 2018. Oh, and she denies having any cosmetic procedures done, claiming that her looks result from her Swiss heritage.
Iris Apfel – 100
Iris Apfel celebrated a century on August 29, 1921, but the American businesswoman shows no sign of slowing down. She had a career in the textile industry with her husband Carl Apfel, which included a contract with none other than the White House.
Since her retirement in the 90s, Apfel has become a fashion icon and a model as she was signed to IMG in 2019. In 2014, a documentary about her life by Albert Maysles was released under the simple title Iris.
Bob Newhart – 92
Perhaps, the stammering style of Bob Newhart’s humorous delivery is half the reason why audiences love him. The other half, of course, is for his rare serious knocks as a movie star. Suffice to say, the comic actor is impressively winning at both.
Newhart, a former accountant, kicked off the entertainment industry in the '50s, copywriting advertisements. There, he harnessed his funny bones and taped telephone jokes which later ended at Warner Brothers Label. His comedy album debut, The Button-Down Mind of Bob Newhart went straight atop the Billboards and won a Grammy. That success led to his own variety program in 1961 and a film career, with notable works in Hell Is for Heroes, In and Out, and Elf.
Billy Dee William – 85
As an actor of color in the '50s, Billy Dee William had a slow-entertainment build-up. Yet, his earlier two-decade frustrations soon ended as the 1970s picked up. The actor finally got his big break in the much-lauded series Brian's Song. From then on, his filmography momentum went crazy, Billie Holidays, and Lady Sings in the Blues, which led many to praise him as the next Clark Gable.
The breakout star in the blaxploitation genre stepped further, being the first African-American to be cast in the uber-popular Star Wars franchise. The Emmy winner’s character Lando appeared in the film's two sequels in the early '80s and, recently, in 2019, The Rise of Skywalker, after 36 years.
Ann Margret – 81
Her six-decade entertainment career is a testament to how Ann Margret transformed from it-girl to a reputable, serious actress. From doing recordings in the studio in the '60s to screen-testing for 20th Century Fox, the Swedish-American-born talent juggled both, in black and white Hollywood.
Despite her debut record, Lost Love being a minor hit, Margret still captured a nomination for Best New Artist at the Grammys. Her movie love calls, on the other hand, played out even more successfully. After appearing in Pocket Full of Miracles and State Fair, her role in 1963s Bye Bye Birdie shot her to major stardom. She made several movies then, one with Elvis, and later won a staggering five Golden Globes.
Jane Powell — 91
The ever-gorgeous Jane Powell lives rent-free in the minds of movie-lovers and critics alike. Her astonishingly virtuosic artistry didn't only take the world by storm upon her debut in 1944 but also maintained the momentum for another six decades. Truly special for the veteran! What is even more outstanding about Jane is her multi-faceted artistry and versatility—dancing, singing, acting; she did it all.
A talent like Jane's was too prodigious to not be noticed. The movie conglomerate MGM quickly moved in their top executives in getting her signature, beating other film big houses to the punch. This was one move that reaped rewards for MGM through films like A Date with Judy and Luxury Liner. Jane Powell's elegance and grace still wows her colleagues and fans today. Legendary!
Dianne Wiest — 74
Fifty years of phenomenal acting, without a tumbling down, definitely puts an actor on a different pedestal from the rest. Yet, there are very few in this class but one of them is Dianne Wiest. The Oscars on Dianne's shelves not only says a lot about her skillset but also the amount of hard work she puts into her craft. Dianne is so influential, she is a role model to younger actors.
For Dianne, it all started in Tennessee. Before long, she followed her dreams and it led her to the spotlight. Her role execution is always with precision, more so, critics have found her performances ever-green. Her dazzling performance in the 2020 film Let Them Talk and also I Care a Lot just goes to prove that, for her, age is just a number.

His captivating roles in The Hitler and The Brother From Another Planet got all the flowers from critics and film-lovers right out from the films' opening nights. From there, he went on to keep the press and tabloids busy throughout the '70s and '80s, never coming short in his films especially The Slap Maxwell Story and Homeroom.
Cobbs has over 60 years of screen-acting richness on his CV. Also, his influence in the African-American community and the world at large is just as impressive as his behind-the-camera artistry. Though aging has taken a toll on his agility, his name will forever be in our hearts.

Sir Cliff Richard is one of the forces to be reckoned with in the world of entertainment. An icon in two realms: acting and singing; golden accolades with the former and over 250 million records sold with the latter.
