Actors you're surprised are still alive?

Peter O'Toole - 80 (has been a heavy smoker & drinker for 50+ years)
Jeanne Moreau - 84 (pretty sure she is/was a heavy smoker too)

Mickey Rooney...and of course... The Lohan.


Louis Jordan is still walking around.

I swore both Jack Klugman and Richard Dawson were both dead for years, before I heard news of their recent deaths.

Re: Actors you're surprised are still alive?

Perhaps not so shocked they're still alive, as they're alive and still VERY active:
Betty White (90) - will be 91 later this month!

...and the just plain shocked they're still alive:
Eli Wallach
Olivia de Havilland

You just shocked me with this post, I thought the same. I had to IMDB her to find that she's still alive.

Re: Actors you're surprised are still alive?

The one that always gets me is Carla Laemmle. Acted with Lon Chaney in The Phantom of the Opera in 1925 and has film credits from the last couple of years.

Oh, and Mickey Rooney who has a film credit in every year since 1926 with a couple of exceptions. Astounding.

Not an actor but I'm still surprised Jean Luc Godard is still kicking it.
