It seems that so many of the people who once entertained or informed us have passed away, along with the "good old days." But there are some wonderful celebrities who are not only still living, but who are living actively.
The actress Eva Marie Saint, who was born in 1924, continues to keep busy. Best-remembered for playing opposite Marlon Brando in On the Waterfront in 1954, she has won many awards, including one from the Academy. But even in her eighties she was appearing in movies and television, and recently she campaigned for Californians to stop texting while driving. In 2018, she was a presenter at the Academy Awards. And she still looks beautiful!
Jimmy Carter, the former President of the United States, was also born in 1924. Since he left office, he has been continually involved in political and charitable projects, including Habitat for Humanity. He can still swing a hammer, and in 2002 he received a Nobel Peace Prize.
Bob Barker, the former host of "The Price is Right" television game show, is 98 years old. He believes in physical exercise and healthy eating, and he actively supports humane treatment of animals.
June Lockhart is another celebrity in her 90s. She achieved excellence in theater, movies and television, and is probably best remembered for playing mothers in the TV series, "Lassie" (1954) and "Lost in Space" (1965). But even in her nineties, she has acted in television and movies.
These people, and others, like Norman Lear and Henry Kissinger, have never retired, but continue to be useful and interested in life well into their ninth decades.
