Celebrities You Thought Are Long Gone But They Are Not Planning Their Retirement Just Yet

Sometimes you watch actors in old films or hear a song you haven’t heard in a long time and think: I wonder if that person is still alive! Some actors keep performing until they pass away, but others decide after a few decades that they’ve had enough of life in the spotlight. These stars are sometimes thought to be dead, just because they are enjoying a quieter life, whereas, after years of stardom, they’ll have taken a financial advisor in hand to plan out their years post-Hollywood. To clear it all up: these stars are all still alive, they are just enjoying the payoff of their retirement planning.

Mel Brooks – 91

Mel Brooks is one of those exceptional talents who can proudly say they are an EGOT: an Emmy, Grammy, Oscar and Tony Award winner. The actor started off as a comedian, with his black observational humor capturing the hearts of many. One of his most famous works is The Producers, an incredibly popular Tony-winning Broadway musical. With his $100 million net worth, the actor probably has a decent senior health insurance after all that hard work! He can be proud of his work and his legacy, as his son has also become an actor and a writer. Talent clearly runs in the family.
