Top 10 Great Performances By Mature Actors

From Top, here is a list of 10 great performances achieved by actors and actresses who  were 70 years of age or older when their film was released.

10. Gloria Stuart, Titanic, 1997, Age 87

Gloria Stuart

Kate Winslet might have been the budding star that led Titanic to box  office glory, but as the elderly version of Rose DeCatur, Stuart’s scenes serve  as the framing device and the emotional baseline for the story. For her work, Stuart got  an Oscar nomination and set a record as the oldest nominee in Oscar history. Her  nomination is even more impressive considering she quit acting entirely in the  1940’s after she found herself underutilized within her studio contracts and  remained away from the business for 30 years. Stuart, who began her career in  1932, is also one of the founding members of the Screen Actor’s Guild.

About UWF Center on Aging

The Center on Aging at the University of West Florida was established in the Fall of 2010 when the School of Psychological and Behavioral Sciences faculty along with assistance from Sponsored Research submitted a grant to the State University System Board of Governors in support of aging initiatives for Northwest Florida. Its mission is to improve the quality of life of aging adults through the application of science to address challenges associated with aging and to promote healthy aging, with an emphasis on prevention. This will be accomplished through inter-disciplinary and inter-professional efforts of basic and applied research, consultation, and partnerships with community agencies. Education and training, direct services to the aging population, and public awareness and understanding of the contributions and needs of elders will be primary objectives.
