The interview focused on Dick’s Hollywood career, varying from his days hosting the CBS Morning Show between 1955 and 1956 through to his appearance in the 2018 hit film, Mary Poppins Returns.

During the remake of the iconic film, Dick was seen dancing on top of a desk after being given the option of three dance routines.

However, wanting to prove himself, Dick chose the most challenging routine to prove that he was able to dance at 91.

“He [Rob Marshall] gave me three versions, and I took the hardest one.”

“I said, ‘I want that one’,” Dick recalled.

He went on to add: “I had to prove I can do it, I was 91 I think.”

Dick candidly spoke about some of his personal struggles over the course of his life, revealing that he is a recovering alcoholic.

The actor bravely revealed that during his time on The Duck Caveat Show in 1974, he was struggling and suffering from mental health issues.
