DUBAI: Now if you don’t find this a bit interesting at all, then we don’t know what probably will.

A woman, who, according to a report posted on www.allthatsinteresting.com lived her entire life doing almost everything that doctors advised her not do – smoking, drinking, eating a lot of sugar and red meat – lived to be 122 years, five months, and 14 days old.

That’s not all.

The portal said Jeanne Calment, a French woman, made records throughout her life from birth in 1875 to her demise in 1997.

At 111, she became the oldest living person in France, and at 113, became the oldest living person in the world, according to the report.

“At 114, she became the oldest actress to ever appear on film, when she had a brief spot in the 1990 film Vincent and Me. At 116, she became the first person ever to live to 116, and at 120 she became the oldest person ever verified to exceed 120 years, as well as released her first music record – a funk/rap track called “Mistress of Time.” Finally, at 122, she was granted the title of the oldest person ever,” stated the report.

Calment attributed her long life to a preferred diet and active lifestyle and starting the day with a prayer.

“Every day of her old age, roughly from age 85 onward, she would wake at 6:45 a.m. and start her day with prayer. Then, she’d sit in her armchair and do gymnastics while wearing headphones, which included arm and leg exercises, and finger flexing. Then she’d shower, without help from her caretakers, and finish getting ready by dousing her body in olive oil,” the report said.

For lunch, Calment would reportedly have braised beef, a cigarette, with a glass of Port. Until she was 116 years old, she’d finish all meals with a dessert, usually eating about two pounds of chocolate per week.

When she could, she’d cover her meals in olive oil, attributing her health to an abundance of it, inside and out.
