Noth­ing like thesedames

The Sunday Post (Dundee) - - Memory Walks -

IT seems that 80 is the new 60.

Over the past cou­ple of weeks, I have in­ter­viewed both Dame Judi Dench, who is 82, and 84-year-old Dame Joan Collins.

Both are bright, beau­ti­ful and ra­zor sharp.

Dame Judi was with rap­per Lethal Biz­zle this week hav­ing the time of her life as he taught her to rap.

They got to­gether af­ter she heard Biz­zle used “dench” as a slang word to mean bril­liant. The pair recorded a video for a trendy web­site.

Dame Joan is work­ing on a new movie and is as stylish and el­e­gant as she was dur­ing her days in Dy­nasty.

Nei­ther of them have any thought of re­tire­ment and have no in­ten­tion of giv­ing up the job they love.

I think they re­flect the way so­ci­ety is chang­ing.

Peo­ple are liv­ing longer and, if they are lucky enough to still have their phys­i­cal and men­tal health, there’s no rea­son why they can’t sol­dier on look­ing as ef­fort­lessly el­e­gant as ever.
