72 year Selleck said that when he turned 70 two years ago, that it was quite a defining moment in his life. In a recent interview, Selleck admitted that the first time he really felt like a grown man was after his father sadly passed away in 2001. “I had had a lot of leadership positions, I had been in the military…but you know, in my case, when my father died, I go, “There’s nobody to go to for fatherly advice. You’re on your own, pal,” said Selleck.
