83 Senior Innovations

From Kirk Douglas at the Oscars to Senior Centerfolds

— March 1, 2011 — Life-Stages
Kirk Douglas was one of the many presenters that made an appearance at the 83rd Academy Awards Ceremony. What really made his stint different from all the other Oscar guests was his ability to really get the crowd laughing.

This top list of super senior innovations prove (just like Kirk Douglas did) that even though they may be aging, older folks shouldn’t be forgotten.

The hilarious remarks and incredible comedic timing made Kirk Douglas one of the biggest highlights of the 2011 Oscars. He somehow managed to steal all the spotlight of the night without even being nominated—he’s truly a super senior citizen.
