Sometimes, age really is just a number. But these healthy old celebrities seem to be defying time like no others. These classic celebrities are vibrant, full of life, and absolutely refuse to take orders from Father Time. They sing, they run major corporations, they act in big-time movies, and they tell jokes to sold out stadiums. Nobody cares that they are all card carrying members of the AARP - they have more joie de vivre than most 30 year olds. 

It’s hard to believe that Tony Bennett is pushing 90 and is out touring with Lady Gaga. Or that Clint Eastwood is in his mid-eighties and still directs a film almost every year. And can you believe that Cher just landed a deal to become the new face of Marc Jacobs? 

Most Americans retire from their full-time job around the age of 65. But don’t tell that to media magnate Sumner Redstone, who is in his nineties, and still continues to run both Viacom and CBS. Willie Nelson and Bob Dylan can’t be dragged from life on the road, and they both sound just as good now as they did in their salad days in the 1960s.

This list may be about famous people who could live to 100, but for some of these hard-working folks, 100-years-old may not even seem like a challenge. Be sure to vote up your favorites, and let us know in the comments section if we missed any vivacious celebs who are aging well!
