Shirley Jones - Shirley Jones Postpones Birthday Skydive Over Family's Safety Concerns

Subscribe To:

Veteran actress Shirley Jones postponed plans to jump out of a plane to celebrate her 80th birthday on Monday (31Mar14) after her family begged her to reconsider.

The Partridge Family matriarch declared last week (ends28Mar14) that she wanted to mark her milestone with a daring skydive and follow in the footsteps of former U.S. President George H.W. Bush, who took on the hair-raising challenge for his 85th birthday in 2009.

However, Jones' representative reveals her relatives staged an intervention on Sunday (30Mar14) to voice their safety concerns, and the star agreed to stay grounded on Monday.

That doesn't mean the Oscar winner won't be fulfilling her high-flying dreams as she hopes to reschedule the jump for a later date.
