Who Says You Can't Be Gray-Topped and Fabulous?

May is Older Americans Month, as President John F. Kennedy proclaimed in 1963 (then Senior Citizens Month).
So let's recognize some celebrities whose stars continue to shine well past their natural hair color:
Candace Bergen (not an "Older American," but the US loves her!)
And the belle of the senior ball:
(And Regis Philbin isn't doing too badly either.)
These celebs all continue to do some of their best work in spite of the digits on their passports.
Some have had cosmetic work done, some clearly have not and there will always be a general “Does (s)he or doesn’t (s)he?” whisper floating around those in question.
The secret to weathering the storm of time regardless of one’s propensity to go under the needle/knife comes from within, according to Dr. Kenneth Steinsapir, an LA Oculoplastic surgeon. “Develop a sense of self-esteem that will support an aging face,” he advises.
I’d say the doctor is on to something. Can you think of a reason why anyone on the list above shouldn’t have a healthy self-esteem? Who needs Botox when you have things like Oscars, Emmys, Grammys and courtside Lakers tickets to show for your hard work?
Who is you favorite "Older American" star?
