The curtains may have closed and the spotlight may no longer be on them, but these celebrities are still living the best life even in retirement. Once having the busiest and most glamorous lives, these personalities are now comfortably settling into the quiet life of a retired celebrity. Some stars may not have the most picture-perfect life in retirement—as several deal with lengthy divorce proceedings or having to go through addiction or bankruptcy—but their ridiculously high net worth already has them set for life. Here are some celebrities who were living the Hollywood dream. Let’s find out more about their life and legacy.
Stand-up comedian Bob Newhart was famous since the ’60s for his deadpan comedy style. His first comedy album, The Button-Down Mind of Bob Newhart, was a bestseller that landed number one on the Billboard pop album chart. He subsequently released another album which also became a hit. Due to his success, he was offered shows including The Bob Newhart Show and Newhart. His most recent TV appearance was in The Big Bang Theory. Bob is not only a great actor but a great person, too.
Everyone who knows this guy well knows the fact that he is a loyal man. He’s been married to his wife since 1963. Some of his quotes include, “I’m most proud of the longevity of my marriage, my kids, and my grandchildren. If you don’t have that, you really don’t have very much.” We also owe him credits for saying that laughter gave people distance, allowing them to step back, deal with it, and move on. Aside from show business, Bob also had an investment in establishing Rotijefco Inc. and purchased a radio station. What a wise move in preparing for his retirement!
