Barbara Eden fits squarely within that group in our opinion. And we believe you’ll fully concur after you see how she appeared at a recent red carpet event.
In 1931, Barbara Eden was born in Tucson, Arizona, in the US. She relocated to San Francisco after her parents’ divorce, where she started her career studying voice at the city’s Conservatory of Music.
As a youngster in Golden Gate City, Barbara performed in local bands in neighborhood nightclubs. But eventually, she also made the decision to pursue acting.
“My mother said, ‘Barbara, you don’t sound like you mean a word you’re singing. I think you should study acting, too,’” Eden recalled to Closer Weekly.
She then relocated to Los Angeles and started performing on some of the top shows of the 1950s after deciding that acting was a good fit for her.
She initially appeared on our televisions in 1955 as a semi-regular guest on The Johnny Carson Show, but it was her part in the well-known fantasy sitcom “I Dream of Jeannie” that catapulted her to stardom.
Eden has now made almost 50 film appearances. She’s still working at 91 years old!
She played Mrs. Claus in her most recent film, My Adventures with Santa, which was released in 2019. She played Melissa Gardner in the stage production of “Love Letters” the same year the film was released.
“I feel young!” Barbara told Page 6, adding that she considered herself lucky. “I feel sorry for people like my poor father who had to work every day at something he didn’t like. I enjoy my work. I still work.”
Barbara claimed that up until a few years ago, she kept going to the gym, participating in spin classes, and lifting weights. Today, she receives assistance with her resistance training from a trainer who visits her home.
“I have a lot of friends,” the TV legend added. “I’m pretty active socially.”
Eden recently attended a red carpet event in Beverly Hills and completely astounded spectators with how young-looking she appeared for her age.
She reportedly appeared on the red carpet for the Remus Pre-Award Tea Time event at The Beverly Hills Hotel while sporting a navy blue satin shirt and matching black leggings. She was also wearing a matching set of black and silver jewelry, as well as high shoes with a pointed toe.
It goes without saying that social media was rife with commentary about the legendary actress’s stunning beauty.
Eden provided more information about the possible explanations for why she remained so young into her 90s back in 2021.
“I’m very careful about [my] diet,” she mentioned..
“I’m a carnivore… I like steak. We eat a lot of pork, chicken, steak [and] vegetables.”
I don’t know about you, but I really enjoy all of Barbara Eden’s writings. I only want she could stay this young and healthy for many years to come!
