Old Heads Matrimony-dom: 86-Year-Old Dick Van Dyke Wifes Up Makeup Artist Half His Age

- By Bossip Staff

Sweet or gross? We’re pretty sure nobody in Hollyweird even batted a false eyelash at this.

RumorFix has learned exclusively that Hollywood legend Dick Van Dyke, 86, married to his makeup artist on Leap Day.

The Mary Poppins star tells RumorFix he met 40-year-old Arlene Silver six years ago at the SAG Awards, “I was in the green room and she passed through and I was bowled over by her beauty.”

The octogenarian then hired her to be his personal makeup artist and they became friends. “The last couple of years we kind of fell in love,” he tells us. The healthy TV and film star says, “She keeps up with me.”

Then on February 29th, the Diagnosis Murder star decided to make the plunge, “Kinda on the spur of the moment, we just decided Leap Day would be the best time to do it.”

Arlene tells RumorFix, “He’s the happiest person I ever met. He’s got an infectious spirit.”

Dick, who couldn’t stop smiling during our interview, says being a newlywed in his 80s is “Wonderful. Wonderful.”

The actor/dancer/singer, who has been in committed relationships since 1948 confesses, “I’m not a loner. I have to have a life partner. I found the perfect one.”

Hey if they like it we love it. Would you marry a man or woman more than twice your age? Probably if they were nice and loaded riiiiight?
