Jeanne Louise Calment (French: [ʒan lwiz kalmɑ̃]; 21 February 1875 4 August 1997) was a French supercentenarian who has the longest confirmed human lifespan of 122 years, 164 days.

She lived in Arles all her life, outliving both her daughter and grandson. She became the oldest living person on 11 January 1988 at 112, one hundred years after encountering Vincent van Gogh, who visited her father's shop. She was declared the oldest person ever on 17 October 1995 at 120.

Although Calment came from a long-living family, there is no particular explanation for her extreme longevity. She had lived a comfortable and stress-free life, with a healthy appetite and a daily exercise routine, enabling her to walk without a stick until 114.
