Surprise! Doris Day is 95 today!
We don’t see Doris Day in public much anymore but she seems to be having a happy life in Carmel where she has lived for many years.
Miss Day turns 95 today – two years older than originally thought. “I’ve always said that age is just a number and I have never paid much attention to birthdays, but it’s great to finally know how old I really am!” Day said in a statement. She was a huge movie star (Calamity Jane, Pillow Talk, The Pajama Game, The Man Who Knew Too Much, Lullaby of Broadway), a huge TV star (The Doris Say Show) and a huge recording star (Secret Love, Que Sera, Sera). She all but retired from showbiz in the mid-70s but did re-emerge in the 80s to host the show Doris Day and Friends and in 1989 was presented with the Cecil B. Demille Award at the Golden Globe Awards. Miss Day also received a Presidential Medal of Freedom in 2004 and a Grammy Lifetime Achievement in 2006. No doubt she would receive an honorary Academy Award for her film career if she would agree to attend the ceremony which is not likely. Well, que sera, sera.
