We’re all used to the fact that most artists’ careers have a short span. With all the young people stepping on their toes, the senior actors stop getting good roles over the years, the public’s interest is waning, and, to be honest, their backs must really hurt. But just like with everything, there are exceptions, and in this case, they are movie legends who won’t quit their passion that easily.

Here are some of the oldest Hollywood movie stars who are still very successful.

1. Patrick Stewart, 81

Even if you’re not a fan of Star Trek: TNG, you should at least remember Patrick Stewart from FOX’s X-Men, where he played Professor Xavier. Here’s a weird factoid: Stewart played the same character throughout multiple movies for nearly 17 years, which granted him a Guinness World Record.

2. Chuck Norris, 81

Chuck Norris is a badass martial artist with a god-like beard who rose to fame after spin-kicking the bad guy on Walker Texas Ranger. Since 197, Chuck has appeared in hit movies like Delta Force, Missing in Action, Expendables, etc. Even though Norris is 81 years old, it doesn’t seem like he’s getting any older.

3. Al Pacino, 81

Did you know that Al Pacino was nominated for an Oscar eight times? It’s not that strange when you look back at his filmography: The Godfather, Scarface, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, and of course the Netflix hit — The Irishman, were all incredible pieces of cinema.
