Maybe it's the lifestyle. Perhaps it's in his genes, but Playboy founder Hugh Hefner has reached the ripe old age of 88.
It really is in his genes. That wasn't simply a play on words. His mother died at the age of 101.
Either way, I like to celebrate all celebrities who make it past four score, especially those that given so much back to society. (We have a who gallery of celebrities who are older than 85).

So to the man who makes bank on other people's birthday suits, I say happy birthday to you sir.
