From Top Tenz.net, 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
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.
