Default Who Is The Oldest Living Well-Known Celebrity

To heck with all this youth culture.

For openers, I'll say Karl Malden. I'm fairly certain that he's in his 90s.

Isn't Mickey Rooney also in his 90s?

Kirk Douglas is up there in age too.

Karl Malden isn't that old, is he? Try the Internet Movie Data Base, check years of birth . . . go back 100 and see if any are still alive. I know people like Lillian Gish lived nearly, if not 100 years . . . Bob Hope, too.

Karl Malden was born in 1912. Phyllis Diller will be ninety in July, Zsa Zsa Gabor is.

And I thought Mickey Rooney died some time ago...not so. He's still alive (don't know about the kickin') was born 9/23/1920.

Kirk Douglas is 90...12/9/16.

Oh...Karl Malden is 95!!!! DOB 3/22/12

I don't know if you know Phyllis Whitney but she's one of my favorite authors! And she's 103 -- DOB 9/9/03.

oops! Sorry fuzzymystic, I overlooked your info about Malden...

The reason I keep up with Mickey Rooney is because my great grandmother was his nanny back when he made national velvet. She lived to be 102 and when we had her 100th birthday celebration Mickey sent a video birthday greeting.

So far it looks like Karl Malden wins.

Here's a good site giving ages and all

The Death List 2007 | Ernest Gallo

Just scroll down the page a little bit and you'll start seeing everyone. I thought it was kind of ironic that Ernest Gallo lived to be so old, I guess wine really IS good for us
