Last Star Standing: A Comprehensive List Of The World's Greatest Living Stars 80 & Older Comments (0)

Annex - de Havilland, Olivia (Great Garrick, The)_NRFPT_01Soon, all of the greatest stars of yesteryear will be Gone with the Wind.

Building on a post I ran in March of 2011 (I can't believe it's been so long...this whole "time" thing sure Olivia-de-Havilland-2013is a slippery slope), and inspired by a William J. Mann Facebook post, I wanted to come up with a list of the Top 20 “biggest” living stars age 80 or over. (Olivia de Havilland, seen above at the peak of her fame, and at right at age 97, figures prominently on my list!)

This is a contentious sort of thing to debate, considering we all have our favorites and our opinions of what constitutes stardom. My list is most heavily weighted toward movies, offers a bonus if someone was dominant in more than just one category and takes into account initial stardom as well as enduring name recognition.

Again, I am only including people 80 or older. I am including actors (movie, TV and stage), TV hosts/personalities, musicians and very high-profile directors.

Olivia-de-havillandTimeless

This is what I've come up with. I'm open to revisions, so for God's sake, please tell me if I'm forgetting people. I know I am, considering I randomly remembered a handful of "unforgettables" I later had to add just before posting this.

Finally, names in pink denote people who were on my list but have since died.

UPDATED THROUGH APRIL 1, 2017—PLEASE LET ME KNOW OF ANY CORRECTIONS/UPDATES.

Enjoy, film and TV and music buffs...

Joan

#20 Joan Collins (b. 5/23/33 = 83)

The “poor man's Elizabeth Taylor” never achieved the acclaim, notoriety or awards of her backhanded namesake, but Collins did quite well for herself, first as a starlet, then as a fortysomething strumpet in deliciously saucy '70s flicks, then as one of the most iconic characters in TV history—Dynasty's (1981—1989) “Alexis Carrington.” The '80s boost allowed Collins to expand her reach via tell-all books, an age-defying nudie spread in Playboy and other endeavors...like marriage, a hobby of hers for decades. She personifies glamour and old-school stardom.

Burt-reynolds-martin-schoeller-04

#19 Burt Reynolds (b. 2/11/36 = 81)

A sensation on TV in Riverboat (1959-1960) and later Gunsmoke (1962-1965), Burt Reynolds went on to become one of the greatest male sex symbols of all time, as well as the top movie star of the 1970s. His brand of machismo and sarcasm have inspired many others who came after, from Bruce Willis to Ryan Gosling, and his decision to pose nude for Cosmopolitan (see above, pic by Francesco Scavullo) helped to usher in the objectification of the male form — much to his everlasting chagrin. His Emmy- and Golden Globe-winning performance on TV's Evening Shade (1990-1994) and his Oscar nomination for Boogie Nights (1997) helped to remind latecomers that where there's Smokey, there's fire.

*********

PrimeMissJean

#18 Maggie Smith (b. 12/28/34 = 82)

Active since the '50s, this distinguished thespian became a legend with her singular, Oscar-winning screen performance of The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie (1969). Equally adept at comedy and drama, she has racked up a number of unforgettable film roles in fare as diverse as California Suite (for which she nabbed Oscar #2, 1978), A Room with View (1985), The First Wives Club (1996), the Harry Potter series (2001—2011), the Best Exotic Marigold Hotel films (2011 & 2015) and Lady in the Van (2015). She is even better on the stage, and she looks set to cement her legacy with her prickly dowager from TV's Downton Abbey (2010—2015).

*******

Dickvandyke

#17 Dick Van Dyke (b. 12/13/25 = 91)

A bona fide TV icon, Van Dyke crossed over successfully into the movies with enduring hits Mary Poppins in 1964 (his accent in which has often led to derision) and Chitty Chitty Bang Bang (1968). Unbelievably, his 1990s series Diagnosis Murder (1993—2002) had nearly twice as long a run as his '60s namesake series, which is regarded as one of the best of all time.

6a00d8341c2ca253ef019b03a519f5970c-550wi

#16 Sean Connery (b. 8/25/30 = 86) 

The one and—for many—only “Bond, James Bond,” Connery rose from being a nude life model to being the prototypical ladykiller on the big screen.

**********

Tumblr_lldlbztVwy1qclvq3

#15 Rita Moreno (b. 12/11/31 = 85)

The legendary Puerto Rican singer and dancer has been negotiating or knocking down stereotypes since 1950, winning the Oscar for her indelible performance in 1962's West Side Story and going on to become one of the only people to score the full EGOT—Emmy, Grammy, Oscar and Tony. She acts regularly, with three movies in 2014 and a two-year stint at Fran Drescher's (Jewish) mom on the series Happily Divorced (2011—2013).

**********  C3f6498093ab529fd5d5432976febef8Hollywood's all-the-ladies' man

#14 Warren Beatty (b. 3/30/36 = 80)

Hollywood's greatest lady-killer, lothario Beatty always had talent to back up his stunning looks — and his game with the girls. A heartthrob on The Many Loves of Dobie Gillis (1959-1960), he became a major screen star opposite Natalie Wood in Splender in the Grass (1961). He would go on to star in such memorable films as The Roman Spring of Mrs. Stone (1961) opposite Vivien Leigh; McCabe & Mrs. Miller (1971); Shampoo (1975); Heaven Can Wait (1978); and his directorial masterpiece Reds (1981). Following the disastrous Ishtar (1987), he somewhat redeemed himself by directing and starring in Dick Tracy (1990) opposite Madonna, the last woman he dated  before settling down with leading lady Annette Bening. Since then, his film roles and directorial efforts have been few and far between, but he remains active, releasing Rules Don't Apply in 2016, the same year he and Faye Dunaway accidentally ruined/saved the Oscars by handing the Best Picture Award to La La Land (2016) instead of Moonlight (2016). Beatty and his sis Shirley MacLaine are the only relatives in the Top 20.

Anigif_original-grid-image-30460-1413567956-23The way he was (GIF via Columbia Pictures)

#13 Robert Redford (b. 8/18/36 = 80)

The blond adonis who got his start in the early '60s on TV quickly became a matinee idol, and later both a force to be reckoned with in filmmaking and a pop cultural touchstone. His career is going strong into his eighties—he's churned out a movie a year for the past eight years and his Sundance creation will be as powerful a part of his legacy as his good looks.

**********

Betty-white-kisses-gif

#12 Betty White (b. 1/17/1922 = 95)

White would be an important figure if only for her contributions to early TV, appearing live for hours on end and filling air-time with aplomb before formats were even worked out. But her importance has only grown over time, with unforgettable portrayals on The Mary Tyler Moore Show (1973—1977) and Golden Girls (1985—1992). Well into her eighties, White's appearances in commercials and as a late-night talk show guest propelled her into "It" girl status, leading to a long-term role on Hot in Cleveland (2010—2015) as well as a rare memorable role on the big screen opposite Sandra Bullock and Ryan Reynolds in The Proposal (2009). She is easily one of the world's most beloved figures.

**********

Carol Burnett

#11 Carol Burnett (b. 4/26/33 = 83)

The world's greatest living comedian—not just comedienne—Burnett displayed her range, from side-splittingly funny to painfully funny of a different kind, on her world-class variety show (1967—1978). She reflected the culture's obsession with classic movies, skillfully mocked our excesses and shortcomings and created characters the likes of which the world will likely never see again. She did it in a clean way, yet with a mischievous wink that suggested she would laugh as hard as the next guy at blue material. A “Tarzan”-yelling singer, dancer, comic and dramatic actress, Burnett has continued working sporadically in soaps and on episodic TV. The movies almost never used her correctly, but her “Miss Hannigan” in Annie (1983) is likely to remain definitive even against the powerhouse that is Cameron Diaz.

**********

Angela-Lansbury

#10 Angela Lansbury (b. 10/16/25 = 91)

A national treasure, Lansbury has been making movies since 1944, when she made her debut in the classic Gaslight. Over the years, she has distinguished herself not only in film but as a Broadway star (musicals, comedies, dramas—she can do anything) and on TV, where she found iconic status as the nosy sleuth at the center of Murder, She Wrote (1984—1996). She's even lent her voice to video games. This relatively new phrase is overused but she's, well, everything.

**********

Maclaine_2545913b

#9 Shirley MacLaine (b. 4/24/1934 = 82)

Hollywood royalty almost from the get-go, MacLaine debuted as a Hitchcock girl and became a versatile lead, her talent boiling over in The Apartment (1960) and Irma La Douce (1963), which locked her legacy. Some of her juiciest roles have come in middle and old age, including The Turning Point (1977), Being There (1979), her signature performance in Terms of Endearment (1983) and an irresistibly American stint on Downton Abbey (2012—2013). A triple threat, she is a Kennedy Center honoree, not to mention Warren Beatty's sis and the world's most famous proponent of all things mystical.

**********

Giphy

#8 Clint Eastwood (b. 5/31/30 =86)

A professional big-sceen bad-ass in the '70s, Eastwood successfully transitioned into being one of Hollywood's most esteemed directors, winning the Oscar on that side of the camera, and repeating the box-office success of his acting days with films like Unforgiven (1992) and Mystic River (2003). The man directed two movies this year alone. Whether or not you liked that stunt with the chair in 2012, he's the real deal.

********** 

BIO_Biography_Sidney-Poitier-Best-Actor_SF_HD_768x432-16x9

#7 Sidney Poitier (b. 2/20/27 = 90) 

The first black leading man to cross over entirely, the first black man to win the Oscar and long a voice in activism, Poitier is utterly iconic (a word I'm using a lot in this piece, but considering these 20 names, how can I not?) in spite of the fact that he hasn't acted in over a dozen years.

**********

Tumblr_mrm6xtxtkp1qflgwpo1_500

#6 Woody Allen (b. 12/1/35 = 81)

Though his legacy has been stained by accusations that he molested his daughter—Allen contends she has been misled by her vengeful mother, his ex, Mia Farrow—there is no denying the mark this consummate auteur made on first, television, and foremost, the cinema. With a string of films that seemed to create their own new genre, Allen revolutionized the art of moviemaking in the '70s and '80s, and has enjoyed occasional returns to greatness ever since. Even the worst Woody Allen movie is, like an orgasm, still kind of on the money, if you're in the right mood.

********** 

Sophia-Loren

#5 Sophia Loren (b. 9/20/34 = 82)

The Italian icon is one of the youngest people on the list, but couldn't be more deserving. She might also qualified as one of the best-preserved sex symbols of all time. She's still working, though her last big Hollywood film was 2009's so-so Nine. Check out my run-in with Sophia in 2016!

********** 

Tumblr_lzh6arTxeS1rncd9ko1_r3_500

#4 Julie Andrews (b. 10/1/35 = 81)

One of the most admired singing stars of all time, Andrews became a movie icon after conquering Broadway. With her starring role in one of the most popular films ever, The Sound of Music (1965) and in one of the most beloved, Mary Poppins (1964), Andrews could have called it a day and remained a familiar face forever. Instead, she acted—sporadically—in a variety of other films [most surprisingly her breast-baring turn in her hubby's S.O.B. (1981) and most winningly in the gender-bending Victor/Victoria (1982)]. Andrews is still vital, even though she tragically lost her singing voice following surgery for polyps. She's known to a younger generation for The Princess Diaries (2001) and as the nice woman who Lady Gaga sang to at the Oscars in 2015.

**********

Kirk Douglas2

#3 Kirk Douglas (b. 12/9/1916 = 100)

This Oscar winner is the last great leading man from the Golden Age. Try to think of a contemporary of his caliber still living and you'll fail. Plus, his son went on to at least match his fame and accolades. Still, I'm thinking that the minute he dies we'll find out he was, as rumor has it, the movie actor who raped Natalie Wood.

********** 

#2 Olivia de Havilland (b. 7/1/1916 = 100)

Is she mad her sister died first (as well as bearing a child first, getting married first and winning an Oscar first), or is she happy to have outlasted Joan Fontaine? Whomever's team you were on, de Havilland was the bigger movie star, is one of the last people living who appeared in the ultimate movie of all time (1939's Gone With the Wind, duh), and worked for decades. Joining a very elite group (George Burns, Bob Hope, arguably Luise Rainer), she becomes one of the few major movie stars to hit the century mark.

**********

Doris-Day-gif-doris-day-34466068-500-307

#1 Doris Day (b. 4/3/22 = 95)

I believe Doris is the greatest living star because she was a huge success in movies, TV and in music (not necessarily in that order). She has huge name recognition Doris.day_still (Globe still runs death-watch cover stories), and is beloved by just about everyone. She's also capable of surprising us—she shrugged off her reputation as a near-recluse to appear at a public party in honor of her 90th birthday, even releasing an official 90th-birthday portrait, and going on to do the same thing for the next several years. We can only hope that one fine Day, she will make it to the Oscars to collect a much-deserved award for the totality of her film work.

Baby Peggy belongs on this list as well, but is included in my larger list above, as are Mary Carlisle and Fay McKenzie, and as were Dickie Moore and Mickey Rooney. All are important by virtue of the fact that they are the last of a dwindling group:

Aa5cf056db13a038c5e502530f2ca935Lassie Lou Ahern, a child actress from the Silent Era, who's still going strong at 95

Manoel de Oliveira (1928's Fátima Milagrosa, was the last surviving silent actor who appeared in his first silent film after the age of 18, 12/11/1908—4/2/2015 = 105); Carla Laemmle (was the last survivor of 1925's The Phantom of the Opera & 1932's Dracula, 10/20/09—6/12/14 @ 104); Shep Houghton (1927's Underworld, extra in Gone with the Wind and many other classics—great article on him here—b. 6/4/14 = 102); Dorothy Morrison Green (Our Gang shorts, last known surviving black actor from silents, b. 1/3/19 = 98), Louise Watson (1928's Taxi 13, member of the Watson Family, b. 11/22/19 = 97); Lassie Lou Ahern (1923's Call of the Wild, Our Gang shorts, b. 6/25/20 = 96); Jack C. Edwards (shorts and uncredited roles, b. 9/26/20 = 96); Jean Darling (1927's Bring Home the Turkey, Our Gang shorts, 8/23/22—9/4/15 @ 93); Hanna Maron (allegedly appeared in German silents as a child, 1931's M, 11/22/23—5/30/14 @ 90); Billy Watson (1928's Taxi 13, member of the Watson Family, b. 12/25/23—4/25/07 @ 83, recently confirmed dead); Kathleen O'Malley (1926's My Old Dutch, b. 3/31/24 = 93); Donnie Smith (Our Gang shorts, b. 9/17/24 = 92); Mildred Kornman (1926's Thundering Fleas, Our Gang shorts, b. 7/10/25 = 91). The same article points out that there is no information as to the status of: Maggie Calloway (Filipina actress, no b. or d. dates known); Marguerite Allan (8/30/1905—1/29/94 @ 88, recently confirmed dead); Manuel Silos (Filipino actor/director b. 1906, so also almost certainly dead unless he's 110); Loni Nest (1918's The Story of Dida Ibsen, 1920's The Golem, 8/4/15—10/2/90 @ 75, recently confirmed dead); Helen Rowland (1922's Silas Marner, b. 10/23/18—5/13/78 @ 59, recently confirmed dead); Vonda Phelps (1922's The Jungle Goddess, circa 1913/14—9/2/04 @ 89, recently confirmed dead); Baby Ivy Ward (b. circa 1914 = 102 if alive); and Virginia Marshall (1924's Cornered, 10/1/18—1/30/82 @ 63, recently confirmed dead).

Trivia with thanks to Mark Kirby: I find it interesting that the two female leads from Gentle Julia (1936)—Jane Withers and Marsha Hunt—are still living 81+ years after filming the movie!

98-Degrees-Popstar-Magazine-coverThe first photo shoot I ever assigned and oversaw was in fall of 1998. I hadn't launched the teen-entertainment mag Popstar! yet, but was in the planning stages, and—not knowing shit about teen mags other than loving the luxe, all-color British ones—I decided the first issue would be themed: The hottest men in music.

Teen girls don't really like men, they like boys. That was my first mistake.

However, gay male magazine editors do like men, so I was frantically searching for someone who would be cover-worthy, and yet would agree to pose for a non-existent magazine.

SEXY VIDEO IS HERE...

98-DegreesLucky for me, the boy band craze was in full swing. It didn't take much persuading to get 98°—a new act, but a cute one that actually straddled the boy/man line pretty well—to agree to a shoot, so we met at a seedy bar on Houston Street and in my photographer-of-choice's considerably less boozy studio to take a series of pretty spectacular images that would've been as much at home in a men's fashion magazine as in a teenybopper mag.

Men-of-the-Strip-2998°, 40 years old, 100% nice

The guys were supernice, if somewhat...nervous? See, Chiun-Kai Shih, already making a name for himself as a fashiony shooter, was documenting the entire shoot, complete with candids of them changing, and the guys were somewhat reluctant to go shirtless. (Many boy bands would start shirtless and quickly cover up once they decided it felt "gay" or "cheesy.) The 98° member with the hottest body, baby-faced Jeff Timmons, was, along with Nick Lachey, the one most often asked to disrobe, so he was pretty reluctant. We got a precious few full-on shirtless shots and some fun peekaboos. The cover looked sensational, and I would wind up working with them steadily for years.

Bearyoncé: Venfield 8's Laflamme Stocking Stuffer Comments (0)

Bear-Hill

Mystery artist Venfield 8 is the Beyoncé of photography, surprising fans with a last-minute holiday must-have: His first book, Bear Hill ($130, 500 copies only), features amazing images of hubba-hubba cub supermodel David Laflamme.

You'd be stupid not to invest in this.

And I think it's safe to say we're supposed to pick up on the Bruce Weber references in the title and in the samples available. This is one pomo homo, and one hell of a photographer.

Singin' In The Pain: Debbie Reynolds Fights AIDS Comments (0)
Debbie-Reynolds-AIDS
As seen in In Touch for Men (December 1983), a Lynda Burdick snapshot of Debbie Reynolds that reveals just how early on the Hollywood legend from a more conservative era was hoofing on behalf of people with AIDS, a disease that was only a couple of years old and was considered richly deserved by a large number of Americans.
