None of these celebrities look over 70 and you will be surprised at the people that have made this list. The years have passed and for many of these guys, it has been pretty kind.
This list is full of the celebrities that are reaching the grand old age of 70 in 2018. Some of these are much loved Oscar-winning film stars, others are popular on our TV and some are even in politics. Some are more famous than others but all will be reaching their seventh decade this year.
Samuel L. Jackson
Samuel L. Jackson is still taking on major starring roles despite heading towards his 70th year on 21st December this year.
He is already signed up for a number of upcoming movies and remains a prolific actor. He rose to fame in the early 1990s and has been working hard ever since, becoming one of Hollywood’s A-list stars.
Number 1 At The Box Office
Jackson is not only a popular actor but, in Hollywood terms, he is a really good investment in any movie. He is not the highest ranking office star and brought in over a whopping $5.7bn gross. In real terms, it means his box office averages over $70million per movie!
No wonder he is one of the highest paid actors in the industry today.
Superstar cook Ina Garten reached her 70th milestone on 2nd February this year. Ina is well known on the Food Network but actually taught herself to cook using various cookbooks.
Her success belies the fact that she had no formal training and mainly relied on feedback from her friends to ensure that her recipes were perfect.
Before she reached fame as an author and became the face of the hit Food Network show Barefoot Contessa, Ina Garten worked in the White House. A culinary career was a big step away from the Office of Management and Budget!
She began with her now-famous store Barefoot Contessa, renowned for its gourmet food and then wrote several cookbooks, wrote for magazines and launched her own brand of convenience foods.
Who else is on the 2018 Celebrities-turning-70 list? Well, there is Black Sabbath’s Ozzy Osborne who hits 70 on December 3rd, and there must be something in the rock and roll lifestyle because Ozzy looks a lot younger than his years. Maybe he really is the “Prince of Darkness”!? Robert Plant, the legendary Led Zeppelin frontman is also about to reach 70 years of age.
There are also a fair few female celebrities who will be reaching the 70 year milestone in 2018. On 28th June it is Kathy Bates’ turn to celebrate, but other famous ladies who are turning 70 include Olivia Newton John, Rhea Perlman, and Stevie Nicks.
