Golden Age Celebrities You Thought Are Long Gone But They Are Still As Alive & Kicking As In Their Golden Years

In both the film and music industries, it’s never easy knowing where all our favorite stars are at all times. Old films or evergreen songs often give a familiar ring to us but big stars of the times past still might need a picture attached to their name for us to remember. With that in mind, we love talking about celebs’ whereabouts but there are always some we miss out on.

And with old age, they are often thought to be dead, whereas, in reality, they’re just enjoying their retirement, which – more often than not – doesn’t include red carpet appearances. Hollywood is easy to remember but quick to forget so we now decided to pull a list of our favorite senior celebs who still enjoy life at its best, even though we forgot they’re even alive. You just might be surprised…


Loni Anderson – 74, $12 Million

Loni Anderson is mostly known for her character, Jennifer Marlowe, in WKRP in Cincinnati until 1982. Her outstanding performance has earned her three Golden Globe Awards and a nomination for an Emmy. Loni accepted the character as she was told that the personality of the character would be a bright and sensitive woman. However, she had to set aside her fame after her eldest daughter was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis. She decided to take a break and focus her time on taking care of her daughter.

Olivia de Havilland – 103, $20 Million

Olivia de Havilland is a British-born American actress and one of the most notable names in the film industry. She began her career during the 1930s and showed remarkable performances in many movies such as The Snake PitGone with the Wind, and To Each His Own. With her role in The Woman He Loved as her final performance, the famous actress decided it was time to retire.

Havilland was awarded multiple times, including two Academy Awards. Born in 1916, de Havilland leads a very quiet life away from the spotlight with her current address in Paris, France. In all likelihood, she has already worked with financial experts to help her take care of her $20-million fortune and its heirs.

Brigitte Bardot – 85, $65 Million

Sophia Loren’s biggest ‘rival’ back in the day, Brigitte Bardot, left everybody with their mouth open whenever they saw her. She and Loren even have the same age. Though Bardot wanted to become a ballerina when she was young, she quickly turned to act to become even bigger a star.

It proved to be a wise decision, and Bardot starred in more than 40 movies, while also releasing songs and running down catwalks across the world. She’s still considered one of the biggest female role models we have ever witnessed, and one of the richest actually, with her $65-million fortune. Since she embraced retirement planning since 1973, Bardot is now focused on animal rights activism.
