Rita Moreno may be entering her seventh decade as an entertainer, but the West Side Story star certainly hasn't lost an ounce of her signature spunk.
Not only is the 82-year-old star one of 11 celebs who has nabbed an EGOT—that's an Emmy, Grammy, Oscar and Tony—but she's the sole actress who also has an Alma Award, the National Medal of Arts and the Presidential Medal of Freedom.
And the humble beauty added yet another accolade to her jam-packed tomb of trophies when she accepted the Lifetime Achievement Award at the 20th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards on Saturday, Jan. 18, in Hollywood, Calif.
The ecstatic beauty danced onto the stage before seemingly dropping an F-bomb in an effort to express her excitement.
"I'm so f--king thrilled," she said. "I hope the man with the button was there on time."
She then shared a sweet moment on stage with Morgan Freeman, cozying up to the actor before the twosome called back to their Electric Company days, sounding out "SAG-AFTRA" in unison.
"Oh, I'm breathless I'm so bloody happy" the Academy Award winner continued. "Late in the first act of my career, I was recognized with an Oscar. I was 31 and so astonished and surprised…I could only muster 'I couldn't believe it. I'll leave you with that.' And now this unexpected honor at 82, but hopefully it's early in the third act of my life."
She ended her heartfelt speech by singing the lyrics from Tony Bennett's "This Is All I Ask," still in clear disbelief of her achievement.
"The truth is I honestly still can't believe it," she admitted. "So let me say this, as I approach the prime of my life, I find I have the time of my life, learning to enjoy at my leisure all the simple pleasures and so I happily concede. This is all I ask. This is all I need."
Lemme tell y'all, I watched with my friends last night, we all boricuas, and it was like finding out God is real and she's Puerto Rican. It was pure perfection.
