Dick Van Dyke has admitted he’s not quite sure how he’s lived to the age of 95, joking that he’s ‘circling the drain’.

The beloved Mary Poppins actor has clearly kept his sense of humour intact, with the star having a unique answer when journalist Roger Friedman asked him how he was.

‘I’m circling the drain,’ he quipped. ‘I never thought I’d live this long. I don’t know how I did it.’

However he’s done it, we’re very glad of it!

The star, who has been a staple of the entertainment industry for decades, hasn’t exactly slowed down in later life, continuing his incredible career.

In 2018, he even returned to the world of Mary Poppins after starring as Bert in the original movie in 1964.

Meanwhile, just recently, Dick proved himself as an absolute angel as he was spotted handing out wads of cash to struggling jobseekers in LA.

The acting legend wouldn’t have been judged for putting his feet up for the day but instead, he chose to drive down to the Malibu Community Labor Exchange on Civic Center Way to fulfill his good deeds. 

The centre is a non-profit organisation which helps locals find day jobs in the area and it seems Dick was more than happy to pitch in, all despite him being high-risk of coronavirus.

In the middle of running errands around Malibu, Dick pulled up to the centre, parked outside, rolled down his window and began handing out wads of cash to jobseekers who were waiting in line to secure employment.

It’s not known if the jobseekers were aware of Dick’s celebrity but they were no doubt incredibly appreciative of the kind gesture.
