Veteran entertainer Dick Van Dyke took home the 2013 Screen Actors Guild’s Life Achievement Award, in honor of his storied career and humanitarian work, in a ceremony televised on TNT and TBS. And if that isn’t enough to celebrate, at 86 Van Dyke is a newlywed, having married Arlene Silver, 40, in February 2012.
