The Blood of Young Runaways

How do I stay so healthy and boyishly handsome? It’s simple. I drink the blood of young runaways.–William Shatner

When you think of fitness, Jane Fonda or Denise Austin may come to mind. But no doubt William Shatner isn’t far behind.

Don't point that thing at me!

…Shatner explains his health and fitness secrets.

In the last thirty years, his metabolism slowed, as metabolisms do. Here he is retrieving a discarded french fry on a Hawaiian beach.

But this is nothing new. Folks have made mockery of his midsection for many years.

In fact, Captain Kirk appears to be sickened by the mere thought of Sweating to the Oldies.

Uh-oh! Someone got a little too close to that flame!

Actually, the flame was due less to Richard Simmons and more to the perils of frying turkey for Thanksgiving, which Shatner discusses here:

Flame-free and portly, he’s still truckin’ at 82 years old (and several months older than Regis!). Last year, he performed in a one-man show on Broadway, called Shatner’s World: We Just Live in It, and he makes consistent appearances on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno.  Clearly, he’s having the last laugh.

Not bad for a Canadian.

  1. I think what I find endearing about William Shatner is he fine being a parody of himself. He’s so in love with life and the people around him that I can’t get mad at him, ever, even for that performance in Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan. I watched a few episodes of William Shatner’s Raw Nerve, and he isn’t snobbish or rude. He’s genuinely interested in the lives of other people.
