Oldest celebrities alive

As you can see, the celebrities who are most likely to die next are Jimmy Carter, Dick Van Dyke, David Attenborough, and William Daniels. However, these are just odds. They do not take into account the individual's health status. Therefore, it is unlikely that these statistics will square up 100% with reality.

For example, the last people in our database who passed away were O. J. Simpson (76), Andre Braugher (61), Shane MacGowan (65), and Henry Kissinger (100).

It is also worth pointing out that the famous people on this list have better access to healthcare than the average person.
