Celebs You’ll Be Amazed Are Still Alive And Kicking – See What They Do Now
Although most celebrities from Hollywood’s Golden Age, who produced their best work between the late ’20s and early ’60s, have now passed away due to age or other factors, there are some gems from that era who are still alive and kicking. Some have retired completely, while others have multiple upcoming projects even after having crossed 80 years of age. Although present-day Hollywood aspirants think earning a media degree or going to film school is the only way to be successful in the industry, the following legends prove otherwise. Yes, they did take formal training to perfect their respective crafts, but what has mattered the most is their undying conviction and unfaltering dedication to realizing their dream of succeeding in show business. And, so they did!
Mel Brooks, Born In 1926 – Leap!
A proud member of the EGOT clan, which includes those performers who have won all of the most coveted awards in the entertainment industry, including an Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, and a Tony, Mel Brooks has no plans of slowing down as he is now providing voice for a character in an untitled Lani Pixels Project having completed Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation due to release in July 2018. It’s surprising that instead of going to a film school, Mel went to the military after finishing school, considering how his career has panned out!
Cloris Leachman, Born In 1926 – I Can Only Imagine
Cloris Leachman was 82 years old but that didn’t stop her from signing up for Dancing with the Stars back in 2008. The legendary actress has around 278 acting credits to her name, and she has done justice to all her roles. Leachman earned her bachelor’s degree in drama from Illinois State University, and then later enrolled in Northwestern University. In hindsight, that degree has definitely paid off wonderfully. Make sure to catch her in Lez Bomb due to release in 2018, or listen to her voice as Gran in The Croods 2, due in 2020.
