On March 10th, the famous actor and martial arts expert celebrated his 81st birthday!
Even though he’s not seen on TV much these days, we’ll tell you what he’s up to at 81.
Over the years, our hero has been in around 40 movies, with “Way of the Dragon” and the show “Walker, Texas Ranger” being favorites. In the TV series, he was in over 200 episodes and became quite popular. One of his latest roles was a small part in the movie “Unstoppable 2” in 2012. But after that, he disappeared from the screens for about seven years, and there aren’t any new movies or TV shows with him in them.
But Chuck Norris is not just sitting around. He’s actively involved in charity and missionary events. Most of his time is spent taking care of his beloved wife, Gina O’Kelly. She had some serious health problems a few years ago, and Chuck makes sure to be there for her as much as possible. Some people think this is why he left his acting career, although his age and other factors probably had something to do with it too.
Sometimes, Chuck Norris does advertising gigs, where he promotes certain products on his social media pages. A few years ago, he surprised many by appearing in a Russian beer commercial. Also, last year, he was in an ad for pre-tied ties, which makes life easier for those who struggle with tying regular ones.
His physical condition has changed because of heart issues, which made him give up intense physical activities. But in public, he always keeps a happy and positive attitude.
