Famous Elderly People

Famous Elderly People, The celeb way of life is fascinating to one and all, irrespective of age and gender. The spotlight however, is always on the young and hip stars, with older screen stars getting the “look who’s still alive!” attitude. Scroll below for a list of some celebrities, who still remain the center of attention, no matter what their age or gender.

“Some people, no matter how old they get, never lose their beauty – they merely move it from their faces into their hearts.” – Martin Buxbaum

Old is gold. However in Hollywood, the reverse seems true. The film industry is especially harsh to its senior members, especially with female Hollywood stars.

The older you get, the more doors close in your face, the less parties you get invited to and everyone seems anxious to give you a lifetime achievement award. More and more stars seem to fade into the backdrop with the advance in age. But not the ones listed in our round up of famous old celebrities. In fact they seem to be brighter and display more talent, even as they grow older.

Famous Old Celebrities – Women

? Meryl Streep ?
Age : 62
Talent, class, sophistication and beauty, in short Meryl Streep. From an ultra-cold difficult boss in The Devil Wears Prada to a loving and traumatized mother in Sophie’s Choice, she is the epitome of the varying shades of womanhood. On stage, television or the big screen, this actress never fails to captivate. Not just a dramatic actress, she even has a flair for music and comedy with her turn in Mamma Mia! Her most recent captivating character performance was as the iron-willed Margaret Thatcher in The Iron Lady, for which she won a Best Actress Oscar.

Most famous for : Unique accents and dialects in movies like

? Dame Helen Mirren ?
Age : 66
The British are famous for their class and elegance with impressive dramatic power. With people like Helen Mirren, no wonder. She has won a lot of awards, she’s a sparkling example of wit and beauty with age and has acted in nearly every genre of film and television.

Most famous for:

? Dame Judi Dench ?
Age : 77
She is easily Britain’s top actress. 10 times BAFTA winner, 1 Oscar, 1 Tony and 2 SAG’s and 2 Golden Globes, phew! This Dame of the British Empire has that distinctive regal and proud carriage of the English, a sharp acerbic tone and even with her miniature stature, manages to look down her nose at you! Truly one of Britain’s finest screen presences. In her latest film The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, she plays a widowed housewife, who decides to retire and settle down in India.

Most famous for:

? Betty White ?
Age : 90
This all-American actress is still going strong in the film and television industry. She is an American TV icon for Golden Girls and The Mary Tyler Moore Show. Whether it’s a ditsy dame or devious lady, Betty White sparkles in the spotlight, especially with her wicked sense of humor. Her recent stint as host for Saturday Night Live endeared her even more to the public.

Famous Old Celebrities – Men

? Samuel L. Jackson ?
Age : 63
The coolness quotient of any movie is judged by his presence. Alongside any other star, be it Bruce Willis in Die Hard 3 or John Travolta in Pulp Fiction, Samuel L. Jackson holds his own and most of the time, ends up stealing the whole show. His characters are amusingly foul-mouthed, street-wise with a wise Zen-like knowledge.

Most famous for:

? Robert De Niro ?
Age : 68
An acting legend, from comedy to drama to sci-fi, you name it, he’s done it. Plus he’s a director, producer and restaurant owner and was the President of the Jury for the 64th Cannes Film Festival. The entire landscape of American cinema would be different without his classics like Taxi Driver and Raging Bull to name a few. He’s put the city of New York and Italy on any movie goer’s map.

Most famous for:

? Al Pacino ?
Age : 72
Without this Italian-American, there wouldn’t be a Godfather Trilogy. There wouldn’t be Scarface or Heat or Carlito’s Way or Serpico. Following the Method school of acting, Al Pacino is an actor’s actor. One minute he’s a calm, steely force, the next he’s a raging inferno. Never one to be pigeonholed, Al Pacino has played gangster, Shakespeare, the Devil, disabled, sportsman and cop. His bitter, dry rasp, expressive body language, his very screen presence, there aren’t enough words to describe this man’s talent.

Most famous for:

? Clint Eastwood ?
Age : 81
They don’t make em’ as tough and macho as this lean machine of a man. The strong, silent type, steely glint in his eye, mouth in a permanent scowl, hat on firmly, gun at his belt, this is Clint Eastwood’s signature style and act. From rebellious, violent cops (Dirty Harry, The Enforcer) to the lone ranger cowboy (Pale Rider, Unforgiven), this octogenarian is also a director and producer with over 30 films under his belt. His directorial ventures (Mystic River, Invictus) have a classic 40s and 50′s flair to them, with thoughtful and bittersweet storylines.

Most famous for:

The list of famous old celebrities of the male gender continues with following stars, each a legend in his own right:

? Sylvester Stallone (65) ? Steve Martin (66) ? Harrison Ford (69) ? Sir Ian McKellen (72) ? Dustin Hoffman (74) ? Morgan Freeman (74) ? Jack Nicholson (75) ? Woody Allen (76) ? Sir Michael Caine (79) ? Robert Duvall (81) ? Kirk Douglas (95) ? Eli Wallach (96)

It’s hard to adjust to your favorite celebrities growing old. Young angry Al Pacino striding about, yelling “Attica, Attica!” or Harrison Ford with trademark black hat and whip in the Indiana Jones series, some movie memories are eternal and we have such screen legends to thank for them.
