Dick admitted that his “genes” are one reason for it, before adding that “having a beautiful young wife half my age to take care of me — that works!”

“My positive attitude, I get that from my wife,” he added.

On top of that, Dick also credits keeping up his fitness regimen for his long life.

“I wrote a book called ‘Keep Moving’, [and] I still go to the gym three days a week and work out,” he shared. “I advise everybody to do that, because that’s what ages people — it’s just a stiffening up and not exercising their muscles and their lungs. Exercise is the answer.”
