A Titanic milestone

James Cameron has said he plans to release a special 3-D version of “Titanic” in two years to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the ship’s first and last voyage in 1912.

But before that can happen, it’s important to acknowledge another Titanic milestone: Gloria Stuart, the actress who played the elder Rose in the film, celebrated her 100th birthday on Sunday.

Stuart’s L.A. soirée, hosted by Cameron and his wife Suzy Amis, included more than 100 of the actress’s friends and family, with stars like Frances Fisher, Shirley MacLaine and Tom Arnold in attendance, the Los Angeles Times reported.

"Gloria's so alive, and her creativity, her artistry and the sparkle in her eyes is a challenge to all of us to live as fully and richly as she has and will continue to do as she heads into her 101st year," Cameron said.

    She looks great! Just an idea of how long she has been around, She was in the "Invisble Man" in 1933 with Claude Rains of "Casablanca" fame! Now that my friends is longevity. Many more birthdays to her. One last footnote, Luise Rainer also celebrated her 100th birthday this year. She won back to back Oscars for "The Great Ziegfeld" and The Good Earth". She was the first person to do this. Can you believe that there 2 great actresses that are 100 years young? Amazing!

    Wow, she looks GREAT for her age! She looks a quarter century younger. I'd be somewhat surprised if she had plastic surgery. I think the lady probably just ate right, exercised, lived clean and enjoyed a lot of fresh air and laughter.

    I love Gloria – she so deserved that Oscar instead of Kim Bassinger winning it – no comparison!
