Ernest Borgnine: I’ve Always Told Friends, This Is How I Keep Young

He may be turning 92 next month, but Ernest Borgnine is showing no signs of slowing down in the, ah, potency department.

In an unbridled interview with Radio Happy Hour host Dr. Blogstein, the Oscar-winning actor reveals why he slipped up this summer and let the secret to his youthful appearance slip on live national television.

Hats off (and that’s not all!).

Ernie: Hats off (and that’s not all).

When Steve Doocy of Fox News Channel’s Fox & Friends asked Enrie in August, “You’re 91 years old.  You look fantastic… What’s the secret?” the McHale’s Navy star shot back, “I don’t dare tell you. I masturbate a lot.”

Now Ernie explains to Dr. B. that he had no idea the retort would be heard ‘round the world.

“I’ve always said so many times, amongst friends, that’s what I do because it keeps me young. And everybody would fall down laughing for a while.  And that was it.  Everybody would get a good laugh.

“Well, this one fella kept it up at Fox News – ‘Oh, you gotta tell me! You gotta tell me!’ So, without remembering that I had a microphone on, I leaned over and I told him,” continues Ernie, whose autobiography, Ernie, was published in July.

“Well, you should have seen the fellas behind the camera. They fell on the floor! They couldn’t believe what I’d said.  And I looked at them and said, Why would they collapse like that? And suddenly I remembered the mic.”

Ernie also says that, despite being a nonagenarian, he has no aversion to playing a stud on the silver screen.

When Dr. B. asks him, “If they were to write a good script, would you still play a love-story part?” Ernies replies:

“Hey, listen, if they could see me as a love story, believe me, I’d do it!”
