Joan Collins has no intention of slowing down.
The actress has worked in showbusiness since the age of 22. She is now 82 but isn't thinking about retiring anytime soon.
When asked during an interview on Good Morning Britain on Wednesday (04May16) if she was considering slowing down at any point, Joan replied: "No, why? You slow down, you die, darling! Seriously, people who retire in their sixties particularly, they only live for about two years after. My brother told me this! So I decided that I’m going to go on as long as I can.
"Besides which, 70 is the new 50 and 80 is the new… I said to the Queen, well actually I didn’t, I told Jerry Lewis, 90 is the new 70!" Joan laughed.

Joan Collins has praised her late sister Jackie for being "very brave" to keep her illness a secret.
Jackie died last September (15) following a six-year battle with breast cancer, which she had never revealed. As she appeared on The Graham Norton Show in scenes to be aired on Friday night (22Apr16), her 82-year-old sister Joan shared her pride for her sibling for remaining so private about her health.
"She was very brave to do that. I think if you are a celebrity in Hollywood and there is even the slightest hint that there is something wrong, you will be hounded by the press,” Joan said. "Jackie didn’t want that and she wanted to keep herself completely private. She was a very private person despite what she wrote."
During her life, Jackie wrote an incredible 32 novels, all of which appeared on The New York Times bestsellers' list.
