"I've always said that age is just a number and I have never paid much attention to birthdays," Day said in a statement to The Hollywood Reporter. "But it's great to finally know how old I really am!"

Day's age has long been speculated, with various news outlets often estimating her age. "We get this question a lot, looks like we finally have the answer," the actress' spokesperson, Charley Cullen Walters, told THR. "The story I have heard the most is that at one point Doris was up for a role when quite young and her age may have been miswritten on the audition form. We don't know if that's correct, but if so it could've simply stuck for all these years."

Beneath wholesome image, Doris Day was an actor of depth

Beneath wholesome image, Doris Day was an actor of depth The very name "Doris Day," cheerful as a sunrise on a studio lot, was an invention. 

The Hollywood legend and singer has died aged 97. Singer-turned-actress Doris Day was one of the biggest female stars of all time, featuring in films such as Calamity Jane and Pillow Talk.

She was the darling of the 50 s and early 60 s films, featuring some of the most popular actors at the time. Doris Day was no exception, since she was just as popular in name alone, including her handsome co-stars.

She wasn't a fan of her innocent image:

Day was well known for playing innocent, chaste characters, causing some critics to dub her "the World's Oldest Virgin." The actress addressed this in her 1976 book, Doris Day: Her Own Story, in which she discussed her three failed marriages: her first marriage to trombonist Al Jorden, with whom she had a son, Terry, her second marriage to saxophonist George William Weidler and her third marriage to Martin Melcher, who became her manager. After Melcher died of heart disease in 1968, Day discovered that his failed investments left her deeply in debt. She eventually won a multimillion-dollar judgment against their lawyer.

She ended up marrying a fourth time to Barry Comden in 1976, but they divorced in 1982.

"I have the unfortunate reputation of being Miss Goody Two-Shoes, America’s Virgin, and all that, so I'm afraid it's going to shock some people for me to say this, but I staunchly believe no two people should get married until they have lived together," she said in her tell-all, via PBS.

A 2008 Vanity Fair article talked about Day's apparent insecurities, including confronting Hitchcock because she mistakenly thought he was unhappy with her work while filming The Man Who Knew Too Much. Director Norman Jewison, who worked with Day on 1963's The Thrill of It All and Send Me No Flowers, also talked about Doris' surprising view on her obvious good looks.

"Doris did not believe that she was an attractive woman," Jewison said. "I thought she was beautiful. Millions of fans thought she was beautiful. Everybody she had ever worked with thought she was beautiful. Doris remained unconvinced."

Her The Thrill of It all and Move Over, Darling co-star, James Garner, also said of Day: "I'd rather have Doris than Liz Taylor. Everything Doris does turns to box-office gold... I think Doris is a very sexy lady who doesn't know how sexy she is. That's an integral part of her charm."
