At age 78, Barbara Eden looked amazing baring her midriff in her famous harem outfit as she shared the stage with President Bill Clinton in Austria.
She said, “I wasn't sure it would fit. So, I put it on and it fit but I still wasn't sure if grandma Jeannie is what they wanted to see."
Grandma is the last thing that comes to mind as Barbara, with her classic folding of the arms, introduced the former president at a fundraising event to fight AIDS. She says she got the ultimate compliment when Clinton told her that she made him feel young again.
She said, “I thought that's really nice to say especially at my age.”
So what's her secret to looking so good at 78?
She said, “I work out 3 times a week, I spin and I also lift weights.”
Her show stopping appearance is being compared to those famous photos that captured 66-year-old Helen Mirren in a bikini.
“She looks wonderful, absolutely fabulous. I'm not sure I would wear a bikini,” she admits.
However, don't expect her to ever wear the Jeannie costume again.
Barbara said, “This is probably the last time you will ever see it. Only on a hanger.”
