As for Betty White, she may actually live to be older than Sophia Petrillo(if my calculations are right, she lived to 103!).
And with Stan Lee, I would say acting like a kid(and creating characters that never get old) is what keeps him young.

If I could add one more, I know Alan Young of Mr. Ed and DuckTales fame is still going at 96!
And let's not forget Habitat For Humanity founder Jimmy Carter and former President George Bush, both of whom are 91.

The 99-year-old was unable to travel from her home in France to collect her Oldie of the Year award in person at Tuesday's ceremony in London.

Where I work we have a former professional baseball player of considerable fame who works for us, probably the only famous person I know. But what impresses him is that my Mum once met Honus Wagner !

Well there is this one gangster that I knew pretty well. His name came up regarding the Hoffa disappearance but nothing ever came of it.  I actually owe my job to him because he's the guy who recommended me to the owner of my company. But that's about it, I keep a low profile.  ;D

Now there's a name, Jimmy Hoffa, yes he did disappear, no one knows where to, could he still be alive? But it was in the 1979s he vanished.

Yeah Jimmy took a long walk in July 1975. Doubtful that he would still be alive as he'd be 103 years old though. He disappeared from the Machus Red Fox restaurant.

Funny, my buddy's favorite restaurant was a place called Andiamo's which is located where Machus used to be.
