So much for organic, free-range, gluten-free, artisanal everything. Jeanne Calment, who lived in Arles, France her entire life, outlived her husband, daughter, and grandson by decades. She drank Port wine every day, over 2 pounds of chocolate a week, and smoked from the age of 21 to 117* (although as shown on her 122nd birthday photo, she didn’t give it up completely).
Jeanne was alive to see the invention of the telephone, airplane, the sinking of the titanic, the moon landing, living just long enough to see the “Keenan Ivory Wayan Show” premiere on Fox TV on August 4th, 1997.
