She’s a singer-songwriter who also worked at some point as an actress. For those war veterans out there, we bet all our credit cards that they will instantly recognize her as “The Forces’ Sweetheart.” She earned this nickname after she played a few concerts for the troops stationed in Burma, Egypt and India.
In addition to her music career, she has also made many contributions to charity and enthusiastically participated in various activities, including compassionate veterans, caring for disabled children and breast cancer patients.

She can opt for retirement any day of the week and we are sure she already settled all important things such as her insurance and her retirement plans.

In the 1980s, Lloyd gained many young fans with Dr. Daniel Auschlander, who played one of the protagonists in the medical drama “St. Elsewhere”. With his age, we can easily spot that he already planned everything out from his insurance policies down to his retirement investment plan and currently enjoying life as a private citizen.

He also appeared alongside some of the most famous stars of that era such as Paul Newman and Joanne Woodward in the 1969 film Winning and John Wayne in the action crime film McQ.
He never reported that he went into the bankruptcy limit in the past couple of decades and that goes to show how prudent he is when it comes to money. Gulager is also still acting up until this date and we think he’s not ready to hang his gloves just yet. His most recent appearance in the public should be the bookstore owner in the movie Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.
BERN NADETTE STANIS – 67 YEARS OLD

She started off her career at a tender age of three, where she appeared as a child actress during the 30s and early 40s.

For those who are not well-versed in her past works, she was one of the main characters of Gilligan’s Island, where she played her part as Ginger Grant. Louise also appeared in God’s Little Acre that started it all and where she earned a Golden Globe Award for New Star of the Year.

Her film debut was in 1931 in the film Women Love Once and with just a few months after, she was able to grab a spot in The Cisco Kid and Husband’s Holiday.
She was a freelancer back in the days and one of the main reasons why her father didn’t want her to tie into a contract was her freedom as a child. Good thing her dad was an attorney who pretty much knew the ins and outs of their contracts. She released her autobiography just a couple of years ago called Little Girl in Big Pictures.
BETTY WHITE – 98 YEARS OLD
Betty White probably has one of the longest careers in show business where she worked for more than eight decades.

In fact, she’s the very first woman to have ever produced a sitcom and she did that in the 1950s sitcom Life with Elizabeth.
She never reported any issues financially and we can safely say that it is all thanks to her excellent money management skills. We last saw her in action not as a regular actress but as a voice talent in the final installment of the Toy Story franchise. Betty has always been committed to public welfare activities to protect small animals, so she said that the royalties from the calendar sales will be donated to an animal protection organization she has always trusted, to call on everyone to love animals.

For those who don’t know the history behind this man, we will give you a quick tour. He first got his shot in acting in a local contest where he won two dollars during his early years. Farr was later found by talent scouts and that’s pretty much the making of one of the most notable actors at that time. He never experienced any major issues in his life unlike most of his peers that hired a couple of lawyers throughout the years when they came across legal issues.

Her sign is a hoarse voice. Even though she’s a superstar, Kavner pretty much maintained a very private life. We are not sure how she does it and we can only assume that it was because of her tight home security system installed in her house.
