I just learned that Doris Day, one of the most successful movie and recording stars of the 20th century, just turned a year older.
Yes, I said 90-something because they are not sure:
"Looking back on nine decades, all she can do is appreciate all she has.Yes, she gave us a lot of fun over the years, specially some of those silly but fun movies that she made with Rock Hudson and "The man who knew too much" with Jimmy Stewart.
"All I ever wanted in my life was to get married, have kids, keep house and cook, and even though I did all these things, I still ended up in Hollywood," she told Closer magazine. "It was a great trip. I've had an amazing life and wonderful times. And I'm happy!"
Day, who lives a quiet life in California, told the magazine that aside from "little aches and pains," she has been "blessed with good health" and is still very active.
"I love to be outside, walking along the beach or working in my garden," she explained. "Those things are all quite enjoyable for me. I have everything I could ever want right here in Carmel!"
In keeping with her low-key lifestyle, Day isn't planning a big birthday party.
Instead, she's hosting a "doggie fashion show" at the hotel she owns near her home. The event will feature local rescues that need to be adopted, and will raise money for her charity, the Doris Day Animal Foundation.
"I've never been a fan of celebrating my own birthdays," she explained. "[And] helping animals has been a lifelong passion. They give us unconditional love and ask very little in return.""
And who can forget "Que sera, sera", her signature song:
