At one point he appeared to jangle the loose change in his pockets while sauntering along in the sunshine on the afternoon. 

The film actor, whose onscreen career spans seven decades, remains quite active and lively despite his old age, as he is often seen out and about in Malibu, making trips to the drugstore or supermarket on his own.

Unlike many nonagenarians, Dick, who turns 97 in December, is also still mentally sharp enough to drive and is frequently spotted behind the wheel of his silver Lexus. 

Just last month, the star was spotted in LA after grabbing lunch with a friend and alluded to his longevity in an brief interview with DailyMail.com. 

‘I’m just glad to still be here,’ the actor said, before getting into his car and taking off.

Dick also offered a glimpse into his secret for eternal youth during the outing, where he was seen picking up fake tanning spray at a Malibu pharmacy. 

He purchased a can of Neutrogena micro-mist self-tanning spray, which promises customers the ability to create a tan two or three shades darker than your natural skin tone, according to the product description.

He has also continued to star in films and television roles even as a nonagenarian

Dick is a grandfather to seven and shares four children with ex-wife Margerie Willet – who he married on the radio show Bride and Groom in 1948 before divorcing 36 years later. 

His longtime companion Michelle Triola Marvin passed away in 2009 after living together for 30 years and he has been married to Arlene Silver, 50, since 2012.

The Hollywood star, who began his career as an entertainer in the late 50s, shot to fame with CBS sitcom, The Dick Van Dyke Show 

Dick is only an Oscar away from elite EGOT status and served in the US Army during World War II.

Aside from Mary Poppins, he is also known for his memorable roles in The Dick Van Dyke Show (1961-66), Chitty Chitty Bang Bang (1968) and, most recently, Mary Poppins Returns (2018).

On Valentine’s Day this year, Dick proved he could still act, sing, and dance alongside his wife 46 years his junior, former make-up artist Arlene Silver, 50, in their Everybody Loves a Lover music video.

The duo performed a cheery cover of a Richard Adler and Robert Allen song, made popular by Doris Day in 1958, alongside barbershop trio the Vantastix and trumpet player Tony Guerrero.

‘I love to harmonize, so that keeps me going,’ the seven-time grandfather said of the group he formed in 2020.

‘It’s kind of my retirement amusement. I don’t play golf. I have more fun singing and dancing.’ 

Dick portrayed cockney jack-of-all-trades Bert alongside Julie Andrews in Robert Stevenson’s 1964 Disney classic Mary Poppins

He also played major roles in Chitty Chitty Bang Bang (pictured) The Dick Van Dyke Show alongside Mary Tyler Moore and The Carol Burnett Show, to name a few

Dick has been married to second wife Arlene Silver, 50, since 2012. The two celebrated their 10-year anniversary earlier this year (Pictured in 2017) 

Dick originally met Arlene when she was working at the 13th Screen Actors Guild Awards in 2007 where he presented Julie Andrews with a lifetime achievement award.

‘He said, “Hi, I’m Dick.” The first thing I asked him was, “Weren’t you in Mary Poppins?”‘ she recalled.

‘We got along immediately as friends, so it didn’t feel like he was so much older than me.’

Arlene gushed: ‘He is the most perfect human being. I’ve never met anyone so happy, so genuine, so amazing. He’s just like a happy pill.’
