He was also said to have slept at a bus station for four days because he doesn’t have work to support his living.

Michael Douglas is one of the most successful and famous actors of all time. Even at his more advanced age, Douglas remains a notable figure in Hollywood.

Now, it is being said that Leno is set to revive the classical and iconic game show You Bet Your Life in 2021.

All credit to his undying passion and love for his career and what he does, he can certainly be the Marx of this generation that we all hope to experience. We cannot wait to witness this show and all of Leno’s natural humor. He is far from retirement, indeed.
Jimmy Buffet is a singer, actor, composer, songwriter, and producer. He is best known for his classic songs, including Margaritaville, which was his most undying single.

In 2018, a Broadway musical called Escape to Margaritaville using his classic hits premiered. This 2021, he already has tickets for sale on his website together with his tour dates. We better grab ours now before they are all sold out! Or, we could just watch him from our homes or offices and enjoy the sweetness of Buffet performing live. It will surely bring us back to memories from a long time ago and how important they still are for us today – much like Buffet’s songs.
How we all wish we had a bodyguard like Kevin Costner. During his prime, he was one of the most successful names in Hollywood, and even though he hasn’t quite maintained his acting career up to his golden years, it doesn’t mean that Kevin is out of the picture totally. He still has the moves, the looks, and definitely the passion to pursue some more projects. Although those projects may not be what we think they are since they are not all that Hollywood-centered. Most of them are charitable projects, and just like his marriage is a well-kept private matter, Kevin knows how to deal with giving in privacy as well. For now, there is no need for fans to worry; Kevin is doing just fine. It doesn’t mean that he is unwell if he turned down a couple of roles. He must have a financial advisor handling his wealth. He is living a quiet life with his family and his wife. As far as we’re concerned, there is no better way to age than that.
Liam Neeson gave us one of the most unforgettable action sequels of all time, so you can’t blame us for wondering if he is doing okay or not. After all, he had a few setbacks from his younger career. Some stars shine brighter with age, and this is the case for the Irish actor. Once Liam decided that he was back in the game, there was definitely no stopping this action star. His movies are leaping gloriously from one to another, and they are all blockbusters to boot! A few months ago, Neeson opened up about the loss of his wife and how he recovered from such a rough patch in his life. He visited her grave and he was generous to share that information with the public. Maybe he thought it could help inspire a lot of people who are going through the same grief as him, and it did. All credits to Neeson for staying strong after the love of his life was taken from him.
We all love and adore this 69-year-old handsome special agent from NCIS, but he also had some pretty serious father figure roles along the way. One of the said roles was in Chasing Liberty, where he played the president of the United States of America and the father of Mandy Moore’s character. In real life, Harmon is a great father indeed. While many might be wondering what Harmon is up to today, Harmon emphasized that while he might be leaving the screens, he is always going to be around still for the events, especially for charity works and philanthropic efforts. There had been some issues with the actor and Pauley Perrette since the two have been costars for almost a decade but suddenly seemed to be holding a grudge against each other. Nevertheless, nothing seems to be out of the ordinary, since Hollywood didn’t find this concern new at all for celebrities. All credit to these two professionals for being willing to keep working on their issues no matter how heavy or big their misunderstanding or conflict might be.
Jean-Claude Van Damme

He does nothing but the chill in his newly found haven along with him slowly moving away from hectic Hollywood schedules. All credits to Van Damme for maintaining a healthy relationship with social media platforms so his fans can still get a hold of what he’s been up to.
Jessica Lange is one of the most famous actresses of her time. This 71-year-old blonde beauty is an award-winning actress who continues to take on huge projects. Some examples would be The Politician and American Horror Story. AHS has been such a huge TV success that Lange’s name redeemed its former glory, not that it was ever out of the picture. She might have taken a break from AHS too, but maybe she just has more important things to do in life. While Lange says she might be done with TV altogether, let’s not jump to the conclusion that she is planning to retire soon. She has been the spokesperson for aging beautifully and confidently facing the media at a golden age. She is also constantly breaking down her roles from King Kong to a hundred more, showing to the world that she is indeed one unforgettable piece of asset. She talks about road trips, Buddhism, and so much more. She also talks about activism. Looks like she’s got more on her plate than we predicted; all credits to this classy lady who also doesn’t seem to age at all!
One of the most talked-about celebrities in the past and in the present, Martha Stewart, is a beacon of light, beauty, and strength.

Grady Demond Wilson
This 74-year-old actor and author, Grady Demond Wilson, is one of the very rare celebrities out there who knows how to keep their relationship life private. Not to mention, this one’s also a keeper. He is one of the few men in the world who knows how to invest in a long-term marriage. He’s been a loyal husband to his wife since 1974. The couple shares six lovely children together.

Aside from announcing the wrong name during the Miss Universe coronation, Steve Harvey is famous for so much more than just that. However, as the millennial generation being the majority of viewers and fans of shows nowadays, he’d probably be remembered for that for the remainder of his career. There was even a meme going around after that infamous incident of the comedy TV show happened. Harvey is a family man and a good father to his children. Currently, one of his daughters is dating actor Michael B. Jordan. Although this daughter of his had some quite controversies and a long dating list in the past, Harvey never seemed to stop stepping in and protecting his daughter’s name when it comes to nasty gossip. We are pretty sure that whatever is going on between their family, is in between them since there is nothing that Harvey can’t fix. If not, he can always hire a lawyer to protect his family. Not so many months ago, Harvey doubted that he’d get replaced by Kelly Clarkson with another show besides his own. Whatever happens, there is no sign that this funny man is going for retirement anytime soon. He’s even got his own channel for people to go to when they just want to laugh.
She is the best and the original Carrie, without a doubt. Spacek was made famous because of the iconic horror film, but she’s also had a couple of notable projects down the line.

In real life, the 71-year-old actress is a true loyal wife to her husband and they have been wed since 1974. She is a great mother and a giver; she has built up some charity works to do while she is approaching her golden years. She’s not retiring from acting just yet, but even if she were to do so, she has done enough contributions to the movie industry to be called an icon, especially with her undying role. This is probably why more journalists and directors agree that it is about time to rediscover her genius and bring her back into the spotlight. We can’t wait for what’s next in store for this talented actress!
One of the funniest guys in the world, not just on-screen, but even his colleagues and family members say so. Tim Allen is one talented and famous actor throughout his years in Hollywood. He has done amazing and unforgettable movies, and while we might wonder what he is up to now, one thing is for sure –he just prefers to keep his life lowkey and away from the public eye, but he has no intention of signing off from the entertainment world just yet. There might have been some backlash regarding his acting career and casting, but a few months ago, Allen made sure that he is doing just well. He even wants people to know that he is alive! All credits to Allen for saying it out loud rather than reading about the story of his own passing, since that usually happens in Hollywood. There is no doubt that he is the best Santa Claus to grace our screens. Our fingers are crossed for Allen to find happiness in whatever it is that he decides to do next.

They were known for their Motown hit Everybody Needs Love and its reputation was later surpassed by Marvin Gaye’s rendition of the song. Her group was featured on Kenny Rogers’ single called Share Your Love With Me.

She had a farewell tour in the UK, which started back in 2009 but don’t take the word “ farewell “ seriously, because she still performed from 2015 to 2019 and even had a guest appearance on The Masked Singer. In other words, she is far from retiring, but of course, she must prioritize her insurance to make her future or even her health secured. However, with her total net worth of $28 million, money isn’t a problem at all.
Jerry Lee Lewis

She has no plans on retiring from her passion as she was featured as a guest star on the TV show Mom and in an episode of Summer Camp Island called “Molar Moles”.

Her other film appearances include Picnic, Phffft, The Eddy Duchin Story, and more. In 1966, she became a semi-retired actress, citing the harsh realities of being subjected to criticisms, and focused more on her love of art and that passion still ignites in her veins. Until now, it is evidently her true passion; on her website, you can see all of her artworks via its gallery. She may be retired permanently, but she isn’t retired from making paintings which are certainly considered as her alternative to her career as a celebrity so let us give her credit for having a solid plan B.
