Dick Van Dyke wants to live till 100
Veteran actor Dick Van Dyke says he is doing his best to stay healthy so he can live until he is 100
London: Veteran actor Dick Van Dyke says he is doing his best to stay healthy so he can live until he is 100. The 91-year-old actor does not feel "old" and is "working on" to live to see the milestone birthday in 2025, reported Female First.
"I would like to live to be 100. I'm working on it. I dance every day and go to the gym. And emotionally, I don't feel old at all," Van Dyke said. However, the "Mary Poppins" star wishes more Hollywood stars of his own age were still alive.
"I am hungry for contemporaries. It's disturbing that there are not many people who can remember what I do.
"I have a few people I drop by on - like Carl Reiner, my mentor and idol, he's 94. And Mel Brooks. We mostly talk about how the past affects what we're doing in the present. We see the mistakes and the roads not taken. There's very little nostalgia involved."
