Shirley Jones to go skydiving for 80th birthday

  • Oscar-winning actress Shirley Jones said she's going sky-diving on her 80th birthday. "That's something I wanted to do all my life," she said, adding that the inspiration comes from President Bush who jumped on several of his birthdays. "When I saw him do it I thought, 'Wow if he can do this, I can," she said. 

    Jones gained fame in the 1950s with film versions of the Broadway musicals Carousel and Oklahoma! Her husband Marty Ingels mentioned that she will be jumping with an instructor and her kids are quite nervous about the decision.
