Kirstie Alley had plans to live to 98 — and maybe even go clubbing while she was at it.
“I just think it’s so weird. Sai, dopo 40, everything’s weird,” ha detto all'ospite Ellen Degeneres.
DeGeneres, Ora 64, asked how the Saluti actress was feeling as she got older, to which Alley energetically replied that she didn’t really feel too different — at least on the inside.
“Everything that I took for granted, you have to work at a little bit. Tutto quanto!” Alley said with a laugh.
“Ma allora, the hardest part is this: that I thought, when I was 20, ho pensato, 'Oh, when I’m 60, I’m gonna feel…’ Non lo so, I had the image that I would feel, 'Oh bene, how you doing, Ellen? o si, kids come over and Grammy will make you some cookies,'” lei disse, putting on a scratchy voice to indicate an old lady. “I don’t feel like that.”
DeGeneres agreed with the actress about the “strano” feelings that come with aging: “I think everybody, when you’re younger, you think that’s so old, and then you get to a certain age and you’re like, ‘Oh I don’t — that’s not old anymore.'”
Alley took it one step further, sharing her worries that she may be close to 100 years old and still want to go out dancing.
“What if I’m 98 and I should die, and I just feel like, 'Oh! Let’s go out, let’s go do this!'”
Alley laughed as she swung her arms around in a dance, imitating herself at a club wearing a “tube top” in her 90s. “That would be wrong,” DeGeneres told her. “There’s an appropriate way to dress, but you could still [go out].”
The actress worried that “there’s a certain age where you’re really old, you’ll look stupid doing the things I feel like doing.”
