I attended the “Behind the Scenes Q&A” with icons Carl Reiner, 92, and Dick Van Dyke, 88, and the screening of their 1969 movie, “The Comic” at the Malibu Film Society last night.
Mr. Reiner shared his belief that, “70 is the new 65.” He explained that he was happily married to his wife, Estelle, for 65 years, who passed away five years ago. He still misses her every day, and talks to her when he wakes up every morning, and when he goes to bed every night.
Said Carl, “So even though Estelle and I were married for 65 years, I still consider myself married to her. So that’s why, for me, 70 is the new 65. And in five years, 75 will be the new 65. Wow.
