Here are the top celebrity and entertainment stories from Fox News Flash.
NEW Fox News articles can now be heard on audio! On Wednesday, Norman Lear turned 100, and he has no intention of slowing down.

The renowned producer and writer, who has made cherished TV episodes and movies for more than 60 years, is still very active in Hollywood. With Brent Miller, his business partner and the head of his production company, Act III, Lear is currently working on 23 projects.

Some of Lear’s forthcoming projects include an animated revival of “Good Times” for Netflix and a “Who’s the Boss?” remake starring Tony Danza and Alyssa Milano.

Lear told People magazine that the goal is to “bring joy to people.” “Joy and laughter lengthen one’s life.”

With sitcoms like “All in the Family,” “Maude,” and “The Jeffersons,” to mention a few, Lear established himself in the 1970s. At age 97, he set a record for the oldest recipient of an Emmy.

Lear said, “I’ve never made a decision to do something I didn’t want to do. “My achievements and awards are very meaningful to me, but they don’t compare to the journey to the studio today. Every time, my heart still bursts with joy, elation, intrigue, and complete delight.”

Lear told the publication that his family has been his greatest triumph despite his long career in Hollywood.

Truth be told, I can honestly say that having children is the most important thing I’ve ever done. “There is nothing more delectable than being a grandfather after having fathered a child. I don’t think there is anything more romantic about life than that.”

Lear, who has been married to Lyn for for 35 years, said of her, “My wife is her own individual and I fell in love with that individual.” “And during those years, I have only continued to gain knowledge about the reasons I ought to have cared in the first place and continued to care thereafter. She is a good person overall. I’m really appreciative to be sitting here today.”

But Lear is taking it easy, at least for now. He is spending his 100th birthday with relatives in Vermont, and he wouldn’t have it any other way, the source claims. His wife, six children, two sons-in-law, and four grandkids will travel with him.

He thought, “I prefer getting up in the morning. “Because I always had something to do, I always liked it. That’s how I was created, and it’s a wonderful blessing. As I discuss it, I consider it a gift. How blessed am I?”
