Betty White is one of our favorite stars. The actress is a pioneer and was also the first woman to produce a sitcom in the United States, and has been a household name since the 50s. White is one of the few people who can pride themselves on being active in showbusiness for over 60 years, and the fans love her each day more!
It is easy to understand why. Betty White has a sharp sense of humor and always has an answer for everything. She is the perfect combination of sweet and funny. Here are some of our favorite Betty White's quotes up to today.
Betty White lost some people along the way. One of them was her husband Allen Ludden, who died in 1981, after 18 years together. The actress revealed that she is still celebrating their anniversary in her heart and said that Allen is never far away. However, she never let grief become a burden on her life.
"There's no formula. Keep busy with your work and your life. You can't become a professional mourner. It doesn't help you or others. Keep the person in your heart all the time. Replay the good times. Be grateful for the years you had," she said.
Betty White did an SNL monologue in 2010, and she nailed it talking about social media. The Golden Girls star spoke about how people tried to explain to her what Facebook was and why she should get one. Her reaction was hilarious!
"People say 'But Betty, Facebook is a great way to connect with old friends.' Well, at my age, if I wanna connect with old friends, I need an Ouija Board," she said. It is amazing to see that her sharp sense of humor doesn't fade.
Betty White dedicated part of her life to save animals, and she has spoken many times about it. "Animals don't lie. Animals don't criticize. If animals have moody days, they handle them better than humans do," she said.
She is part of the Morris Animal Foundation since the 70s and they do a beautiful work funding campaign for animals. White has also worked with the L.A Zoo for over 40 years. How can we not love this woman?
Let's be honest: Betty White looks more active than most of us. So it is normal that people want to know how Betty White takes care of her health, and what kind of exercises she does to be like that. It seems that she doesn't have a secret.
"I'm a health nut. My favorite food is hot dogs with French fries. And my exercise: I have a two-story house and a very bad memory, so I'm up and down those stairs," she said in an interview.
Many people say that elderlies will have problems accepting new things, but Betty White can prove them wrong. When they asked her about same-gender marriage, she didn't have doubts.
"I don't care who anybody sleeps with. If a couple has been together all that time — and there are gay relationships that are more solid than some heterosexual ones — I think it's fine if they want to get married. I don't know how people can get so anti-something," she said.
Betty White doesn't hold back to talk about her late husband, Allen Ludden, and she defines him as the perfect partner. Someone that just Robert Redford could come close. But she doesn't have a problem to talk about her first marriage and make some fun of it.
"I married my first husband because we wanted to sleep together," she says. "It lasted six months, and we were in bed for six months."
Betty White is one of the most beloved stars in show business, and she already said that retirement is not on her plans. The reason for that is she loves her work, and she is still having the best time on set.
"I'm having the time of my life and the fact that I'm still working -- how lucky can you get?" she said in an interview with HuffPost. The fact that she is 97 and still so passionate about her work is an inspiration for everyone.
When Betty White was on Saturday Night Life, she had the chance to meet Jay-Z. Although many people would bet she is not familiar with the rapper, White proved them wrong, and she is also a fan of him. Who could imagine that?
"Oh, I'm thrilled to meet him and thrilled to hear that he's going to be on the show because he's the hottest thing since sliced bread," she said. Watch out, Beyoncé!
The actress has a successful career for decades, got married, had children, and uses her energy to protect animals. When people ask if she has regrets in life, she also has the best answer.
"I have no regrets at all. None. I consider myself to be the luckiest broad on two feet," she said. Perhaps having no regrets is one of her secrets for looking so happy and full of energy.
Betty White also has her beauty secrets, and she is happy to share it with the fans. "Get at least eight hours of beauty sleep, nine if you're ugly," she joked on The Late Show with David Letterman.
Of course, it cracked the audience. In her appearance, Betty White gave tips to live a long life. And she nailed it!
