Quit smoking at 106!

An idiot A fool or a hero? To his "wonderful wife", of course.

BERLIN | Fri Dec 3, 2010 9:40am EST
(Reuters) - Actor and singer Johannes Heesters has given up smoking for love -- at age 106.

"I did it for love, for my wonderful wife," Heesters, who is better known as "Jopie" in Germany where he has spent most of his 90-year career, told the German entertainment magazine Bunte. "She should have me as long as possible."

Dutch-born Heesters, who will turn 107 on Sunday, has been married to German actress Simone Rethel, 61, since 1992. Heesters said he quit smoking three weeks ago.

Heesters, who in 2008 apologized for his cooperation with the Nazi regime, is known for his roles in the film "Die Fledermaus" (1946) and the German film "The Moon Is Blue" (1953).

What is "this"? Are you referring to the higher frequency of sexual encounters with his "wonderful wife"? Do you really think it makes a difference whether he does it once a year or twice that much?
