4.) Olivia de Havilland, age 102.
Yes, the actress who starred in the 1939 romance film “Gone with the Wind” and “The Adventures of Robin Hood” (1938) is still very much alive. The two-time Golden Globe and Academy Award winner has not acted since 1988, so it’s fair to say she’s retired. Yet de Havilland’s name did surface in the news in early 2018 when her lawsuit against the creators of “Feud” — an FX miniseries about the rivalry between Bette Davis and Joan Crawford — was thrown out after she accused them of defamation.
5.) Janis Paige, age 96.
The multi-talented Paige carved out a niche for herself as a capable singer and actress. Although she also made her name on Broadway, she starred in the 1948 romantic comedy “Romance on the High Seas” and in a short-lived sitcom, “It’s Always Jan” (1955-1956). In late 2017, Paige, who has not acted since 2001 due to vocal cord damage she suffered, was in the news again when she wrote an op-ed for The Hollywood Reporter that described a rape attempt in Hollywood when she was 22 years old.
6.) Rhonda Fleming, age 95.
The “Queen of Technicolor” took on many different roles — she acted in more than 40 movies during the 1940s and 1950s. She acted alongside Bing Crosby in “A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur’s Court” and Ronald Reagan in “The Last Outpost” and “Hong Kong.” Fleming’s acting days have been over for decades, but the former actress, who has been married six times, is still with us today.
