Donna Dixon and Dan Aykroyd stepped out at the premiere for "Get on Up," and their appearance started people talking. Donna Dixon is not seen out much, but the 57-year-old actress showed that she still looks great when she wore a very form fitting dress to the event. She showed off her figure in the outfit. The Spread It shared more about the actress and her appearance on her husband's arm on July 23.

Dan Aykroyd attended the premiere for the new film on Monday night at the Apollo Theater because he is one of the stars of the film. The film tells the story of James Brown's life. Mick Jagger produced this film, and he let loose a bit at the after party for the premiere. He was seen dancing and having fun with his children and grandchildren during the party, according to Showbiz 411.

"Get On Up" stars Chadwick Boseman as James Brown, and the cast also features "True Blood" star Nelsan Ellis as Bobby Byrd. Aykroyd stars as Brown's agent, Ben Bart, in the feature film. He looked happy to be at the premiere with his wife on his arm. Donna and Dan married in 1983. The couple worked together in "Doctor Detroit." That is where they met, and they married just a few months later.

Dixon is best known for her role in the Tom Hanks' comedy "Bosom Buddies." That series aired on ABC between 1980 and 1982. The actress starred in several movies after the series ended, but she disappeared completely as an actress for 19 years. She did resurface in a new film this summer though.

According to 2 Paragraphs, the actress is featured in a new Spike Lee film. "Da Sweet Blood of Jesus" made it to the big screen after Lee started a Kickstarter campaign for the film. He raised $1.2 million for the project, and filming took 16 days. The film was released on June 22. Dixon's last role was in Oliver Stone's "Nixon."

At the "Get on Up" premiere, Dixon showed off some with her dress. She wore a "black dress that featured sheer top and sleeves." The neckline on the dress dropped down some too. The actress definitely showed that 57 is just a number. She looked great for her age. Some might say she looks great for a woman of any age. She shares three daughters with Aykroyd. Now that their children have grown, she is offer exploring the world. She even discovered the bones of a new dinosaur, according to her husband. He did not reveal when she made the find though.

The photos from the premiere definitely show a happy couple that is still very much in love. In Hollywood, a marriage lasting over 30 years is not heard of often, but this couple has managed to stay together. Aykroyd has more films set for release in the near future, and he is still working on getting "Ghostbusters 3" made. If he has his way, production on that film will start next year.
