Gene Hackman

Warner Bros.

A two-time Oscar winner who just turned 94, Gene Hackman opted to gracefully step away after 2004’s Welcome to Mooseport to enjoy his retirement from acting, though he still writes novels when he pleases. His prolific output means he’s still a constant presence whenever you flip through cable channels, in classics from Bonnie and Clyde to The French Connection to The Unforgiven to Superman (above).

Now 93, he was spotted about five years ago riding his e-bike near his home in Santa Fe, New Mexico. He’s another of the actors who quit acting with absolutely nothing left to prove.
