connie sawyer -100 years old!

Connie Sawyer
The Oldest Working Actor/Actress in SAG-AFTRA!
Today, November 27th was her 100th Birthday.
The Celebrations of this incredible Milestone have been going on since September, when she was Honored at Theatre West's 50th Anniversary Event!
That is how I know Connie.  I met her back in 1963 and she was full of 'piss and vinegar' then, and she still is now.

Above, with Ed Asner, at another 'event' in which she was honored by her peers.....And by the way, if you want to see her in action, tune in to "Two Broke Girls" on December 17th on CBS! She also just did a commercial for Acura---I don't know when that will be on, but look for it, too!
I called her today to wish her Happy Birthday---she was getting ready to go to the Party that was being held at The Motion Picture Home out in Woodland Hills, where she resides. She has a cottage there--lucky her!
She said...."Let me call you tomorrow when I will be home and I can put my feet up because of my edema...." That is just about the only thing wrong with her.....lol.
She is amazing!  Full of life and she has 'all her marbles', as they say....I mean, she is Incredible!
Above, with Russell Brand, at an event given by the Motion Picture and Television Relief Fund, who's motto is---"We Take Care Of Our Own".
They had 100 Cupcakes in Honor of Connie's 100th Birthday....
I hope they Celebrate this fantastic milestone till next November 27th!
One of the first things Connie said to me today was, "God I miss Betty Garrett!"  It brought me to tears---I do too!
Connie still drives, by the way, and while during the last few years of Betty's life, Connie would pick her up and they would go to their 'Show Buddy's' gatherings!
So, there she is....the fabulous Connie Sawyer, beloved by one and all.....
100 years old!

A Standing Ovation For Our Dear Connie....
Long May She Wave......
More To Come.......

Note: 3pm Wednesday...Connie is on her way into Hollywood to audition for a Bank Of America commercial....!
AMAZING
AMAZING
AMAZING! 
Note:  It will be back to Halloween 3, next time, my dears......

What a beautiful woman she was and is. Just living to 100 is amazing. To still be working is incredible. Don't normally watch 2 Broke Girls but will make it a point. Thanks.

PS.
Sending belated Birthday wishes and hopes for many more to the lovely woman.
Had to laugh at the "all her marbles". I am 73 and have lost a bunch of mine all ready.

Wow, what an amazing lady and what a spunky, spirited chica to be partying at such a wonderfully ripe age...and she is a beautiful woman as well.

I will definitely look for her on "Two Broke Girls," one of the few shows I watch.

Hope to chat with you again soon! Take care, my friend. ♥

Well, a HUGE Happy Birthday to her then!!

By the way, 2 Broke Girls isnt fairing at all well on the networks over here in Australia, in fact, it was voted in the 20 worst shows of 2012!!!

Take care!

She doesn't look that old. She has a light in her eyes and a sparkle in her smile. She projects energy.

Hey, I just saw Ed Asner on Broadway in a play called "Grace" with Paul Rudd and Michael Shannon. It was fantastic! Those national commercial gigs can really pay $$$.

Wow! Just living to 100 is really amazing! Connie Sawyer is really a beautiful lady.
To still be working and still drives is fantastic!

Congratulation to Connie!

FABULOUS. We have a woman at my 'home' who just turned 102, no one believes when they hear it, she moves and looks not a day over 65. (no make up, no botox, no make-up, no wig) I asked her what her secret was, she shook her head and quietly replied, "I just never got sick." I think of my great-aunt who lived a zesty life until 103 and that fact is true of her also. Glad she has a cottage, I wish more industries looked after their own.

That is fantastic! And I have to say, I'm totally jealous she had Russell Brand's hands all over her ;)

had this to say:

What a great lady! She looks so good and her enthusiasm and love of life keep her going. She must have good genes. I am happy for her and hope she can stay active and be happy for many more years.

had this to say:

Wow, Connie looks much younger than her 100 years! I hope I'm still as active if I ever reach anywhere near her age. How wonderful! :)

She is still gorgeous. I wonder what her secret is???

Naomi, I tried to e-mail you again but it was returned. Just wanted you to know that Phil passed away yesterday morning. It's hard to let go, but he's not suffering anymore. I got your phone message and things have been crazy here the last few weeks. Thanks so much for your kind words and thoughtfulness. xxoxx Rachel

What an amazing woman! I love the shot with Russell Brand with her smiling at him. Such a beautiful, happy smile. I love people like that. I hope Russell had a much cleaner mouth than he normally does, but he is very funny :)

Was and is a knockout. I guess that's what you'd call good genes.

Great to see someone going strong as she is at 100. Wonderful her health is so good -- that she can be so active still. Her attractiveness is evident at every age based on the photos you've shared. Hope she has many more years ahead of her and all indications are she will.

Do share more of older colleagues in the business who are "going on forever!"

Naomi, she is amazing. Happy Birthday Connie. Wonderful to see that she is so active. And the best bit? That the industry looks after and honours its own. I wonder what she thought about Russell Brand, lol. She does look a lot younger than 100 that is for sure. She has a few tricks up her sleeve I am sure. And still driving? Wow,just wow. Love to hear about your friends Naomi. You are a beautiful person inside and out and have some wonderful, fascinating and very interesting friends. Like attracts like as we know.
