..LOS ANGELES, Calif. - Dick Van Dyke's publicist says the 86-year-old actor is a very happy newlywed.

Publicist Bob Palmer says Van Dyke and 40-year-old makeup artist Arlene Silver were married last week in a small Leap Day ceremony at a Malibu chapel near Van Dyke's home. Members of Silver's family and some of the star's close friends were on hand for the small service.

Palmer said Friday that Van Dyke and Silver became friends about five years ago after meeting at a Screen Actors Guild Awards.

Michelle Triola Marvin, Van Dyke's partner of 30 years, died in October 2009 at age 76.

Palmer says Silver and Van Dyke have much in common, including a love of singing, adding that he's never seen the actor happier.

Hmmm.

I was feeling very happy for him, until I read that his bride is 40.

Hmmm.

Kinda makes you wonder why she would be marrying him.....


Hmmm.


Oh well. As long as he is happy & has someone to enjoy the last chapter of his life.

Ha --- that's what I thought too! I had to go back & read it, cause I thought, "Was he having an affair with his makeup artist?", cause it said his wife died 3 years ago.

Well, 40 & 86 is a lot better than 30 and 76, do you agree?

Still a bit of a stretch for me, but if it makes him happy..

His last partner was not 30.. she was with him for 30 years.

I don't know, she's not the typical looking gold digger, obviously doesn't mean she isn't.. It's definitely odd. 86.. I know what 86 year old men typically look like, and it's not so pretty! lol

Oh good for him. to find love at that age. She doesn't sound like a gold digger..she has a succussful career of a make-up artist to the stars. Age is just a number when you have lots of things in common and there's love

I guess it's just me, then! lol Nothing turns me on like saggy balls down to your knees! haha

I get that love is blind and all of that, but I just can't see past this age. It's not even the gap, really, it's the fact that he's almost 90..!

Not every relationship is about sex. I was always told find someone you can talk to. Looks come and go, money comes and goes, sex comes and goes but a person that you can sit and talk to for hours and hours makes the days worth while.

That's for when you BOTH get old. LOL I get what you guys are saying, totally.. but I think this applies to marrying someone for something other than the physical alone. Not for marrying your grandfather.

I can't help but assume there are other motivations here.. I am shocked at how many people see NOTHING odd about this! lol I feel I'm fairly open minded, but this is really off the wall!

and for those that say its ok i would bet there would be a different reaction if it was a 20 yr old woman and 66 yr old man
which is also disgusting

It is wrong. She would have been 35 when they met and how did she find and 80 year old attractive in that aspect is weird I guess. And for everyone that claims sex isnt important something is wrong, women are the most sexual at that age and I havent met one yet that doesnt enjoy her sex life or claims it isnt important! BS, she knows he will kick it soon and Im sure she stands to gain from the whole thing even if she does have her own little "fortune"
