Celebrities You Thought Are Long Gone But They Are Not Planning Their Retirement Just Yet
Celebrities come and go over the years, and we often forget about stars we used to love and idolize at one time during our lives. Sometimes, we even regard them as ‘dead’ if we haven’t heard about them in a while! However, you may be surprised to hear that some of the greatest actors, singers, and other well-known public personalities are still very much alive and kicking! That’s why we’ve come up with this list to figure out who is still working or enjoying life in the next chapter of their lives – in retirement.
Peggy Stewart – 94
Peggy Stewart is a great American actress who is most well-known for her work in many Western films during the 1940’s. The Florida-native began acting when she started working with the company Republic Pictures. Soon after signing with them, she managed to land roles in some really great Western films including the likes of Ride, Ryder Ride, and The Life and Legend of Wyatt Earp. And her career didn’t end there. In more recent years she has played roles in other movies such as The Runaways and That’s My Boy. Her work as a Hollywood actress has earned her a great $18 million fortune. Although she in her 90’s, she does still take on some guest roles on TV shows every now and again. But she mostly relaxes and enjoys her old age.
Mel Brooks – 91
Mel Brooks is a man of many talents. He has been a successful actor, director, comedian and even producer over the course of his long career. He did extremely well for himself as an actor, and is only one of a handful of people who have received a Grammy, Tony, Academy Award and an Emmy. Over his well-to-do career, Brooks has managed to earn himself a $100 million net worth. But what is he up to today? Well, although he is 91 years of age, Brooks is still going strong with his acting and according to him, he doesn’t plan to stop any time soon! He is set to appear as a voiceover in Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation this year, and is in the midst of filming another movie set to be released in 2019.
Brooks has a son with his late wife Anne Bancroft, named Max who followed his father’s footsteps in the Hollywood industry, and is said to be making a name for himself there. He is also an avid writer.
Barbara Eden – 86
Barbara Eden made her very first appearance as an actress in 1956, when she was on The Johnny Carson Show. From there, she was seen on many a TV show as well as stage performances. Following her success in showbiz already, she then moved on to starring in movies, some of which are A Private’s Affairs, Swingin’ Along and Flaming Star, in which she acted alongside rock legend Elvis Presley. Her most famous role to date though has to be her role as Jeannie in the exceptionally popular sitcom I Dream of Jeannie, which was on screens in the 1960s. Up until 2016, Barbara was still very much on our television screens. She has made official plans of retirement yet, but when she does she will be comfortable with her net worth of $10 million.
