Dick Van Dyke, 95, is just loving life as usual as he steals show on red carpet

Dick Van Dyke has been spotted just loving life as he walked the red carpet of the Annual Kennedy Center Honors.

The 95-year-old stole the show as he suited up for the occasion, looking completely suave.

Assisted by the use of a cane, the Mary Poppins star could be seen grinning away as he enjoyed the event, taking the chance to pose with fellow attendees.

Dick also spoke at the event, brandishing his cane as he imparted some wisdom.

The annual event celebrates all kinds of artists who have ‘spent their lives elevating the cultural history of our nation and world.’

This year’s honourees included Dick, actress Debbie Allen, musicians Joan Baez and Garth Brooks, and violinist Midori.


Dick looked as spritely as ever at the celebration – although he previously joked that he’s got no idea how he’s lived so long.

The actor, who has impressed fans by always having a spring in his step as he ages, had a unique answer recently when journalist Roger Friedman asked him how he was.

‘I’m circling the drain,’ he quipped. ‘I never thought I’d live this long. I don’t know how I did it.’

However he’s done it, we’re very glad of it!


Meanwhile, just recently, Dick proved himself as an absolute angel as he was spotted handing out wads of cash to struggling jobseekers in LA.

The acting legend wouldn’t have been judged for putting his feet up for the day but instead, he chose to drive down to the Malibu Community Labor Exchange on Civic Center Way to fulfill his good deeds. 

The centre is a non-profit organisation which helps locals find day jobs in the area and it seems Dick was more than happy to pitch in, all despite him being high-risk of coronavirus.

In the middle of running errands around Malibu, Dick pulled up to the centre, parked outside, rolled down his window and began handing out wads of cash to jobseekers who were waiting in line to secure employment.

It’s not known if the jobseekers were aware of Dick’s celebrity but they were no doubt incredibly appreciative of the kind gesture. 

An all-round king.
