The story of the unsurpassed Jeanne Kalman

Life must be lived in such a way that everyone in heaven will exclaim in surprise: “Wow, this is cool, repeat again!”. Apparently it happened with the Frenchwoman Jeanne Louise Kalman, who lived 122 years and 164 days, which set a world record. This story is about an incredible woman whose life was watched not only by France, but also by the whole world.

Some facts from the life of the unsurpassed Jeanne Kalman.

She is a native French woman, born in Orly in a family of aristocrats. When Jeanne was 8, Edison just came up with a light bulb. When she was 14, they built the Eiffel Tower. At 21 she married a distant relative.

This is hard to believe, but once in her youth, Jeanne met with Van Gogh. “He was dirty, badly dressed and gloomy,” she admitted in an interview on the 100th anniversary of the birth of the great artist.

Many people do not live to the age of 85, and Zhanna Kalman did not just live, but it was at this age that she began to practice fencing. Not surprised? In its centenary, this granny was riding a bike.At 115 years old, she received a role in the film, at 121 she took part in the musical "Mistress of the Planet."

“I have only one wrinkle, and I'm sitting on it!” - said the great-grandmother of the planet once. By the way, Joan quit smoking only at 117 years old. And not because I felt bad. It was just unpleasant for her, who almost lost sight, to ask for a light every time.
Relatives say that until the last days she loved spicy seasonings and spicy dishes. “I am in love with wine,” Kalman loved to repeat.

Ironically, Jeanne survived all her children and even grandchildren, so she has no heirs left. At the age of 90, she entered into a contract with 47-year-old lawyer Raffrey: he had to inherit her home for paying her rent every month until death. According to calculations, the cost of the house was approximately equal to the amount that the lawyer had to pay within 10 years. However, here too Fortune smiled at Jeanne: Raffrey not only paid her for 30 long years, but also died before the superwoman at the age of 77 years. That's not all: according to the contract, the widow of the deceased continued to pay.

Kalman survived 17 (!) Presidents of her own country.When she was asked what the secret of her longevity was, she replied, thinking: “Probably, that I never worked.” The last seven years of her life she was very difficult to walk (hip injury made itself felt), but this megababule kept a clear mind and a bright memory until the end of days. In one of the interviews, the correspondent said goodbye to her: “See you! Maybe next year ... ”To which Kalman replied:“ Why not? You don't look so bad! ”

Until the last breath, this fragile and bold old woman remained an icon of style: a white blouse, black trousers, and a string of pearls was always adorned on her neck. “It seems to me that I will die of laughter,” suggested a resilient grandmother. When Jeanne left this world in the 123rd year of life, apparently, not only she was laughing, but also fate itself. This woman never lost her heart and daily defied life. And fate, as you know, loves the brave, and therefore did not undertake to compete with Kalman ... Tell all your friends about this awesome old woman: let them also know the secrets of longevity of that which all France knew ...

Some sayings of Jeanne:

Youth is a state of mind, not a body. Therefore, I am still a girl, just the last 70 years I look bad.

I have only one wrinkle, and I'm sitting on it now.

All babies are beautiful.

God forgot about me!

Always smile. So I explain the reason for my longevity.

If you can't do anything about something, don't worry about it.

I have a great desire to live and a good appetite, especially for sweets.

I never use mascara because I laugh a lot to tears.

I do not see well, I hear badly and I feel bad, but all this is nonsense.

I have iron legs, but to be frank, they began to slowly rust.

I enjoyed every opportunity, I followed the principles of morality, and I have nothing to regret. I was lucky.
