Star gushes about the joys of old age, says she’s spoiled rotten
It’s always a pleasure to read or watch Betty White interviews, even if you’re not the biggest fan of her work. Not only is the “Hot in Cleveland” star incredibly funny and frank, but she’s also not shy about calling a spade a spade.Like, for instance, how she’s hotter now at 91 than she was one year ago.
People magazine got in touch with the veteran screen icon shortly after her birthday and, as was to be expected, asked her how yet another celebration of the type has changed her.
“Best thing about being in your 90s is you're spoiled rotten,” Betty gushes.
“Everybody spoils you like mad and they treat you with such respect because you're old. Little do they know, you haven't changed. You haven't changed in [the brain]. You're just 90 every place else,” she adds.
As for whether she feels any different now than she did last year, she does: she’s wiser and better looking now.
“Now that I'm 91, as opposed to being 90, I'm much wiser. I'm much more aware and I'm much [hotter],” she jokes.
Betty White is one of the most beloved celebrities of the moment, making a comeback of sorts thanks to a Snickers ad that ran during the Super Bowl a few years back.
Ever since, she’s been on a roll, reviving her acting career and doing plenty of interviews to promote her various projects.
Of course, being this funny and adorable has also earned her many popularity points with the fans.
However, Betty can also speak the painful truth if need be, no matter who might find offense with it, like she did when she put Lindsay Lohan and Charlie Sheen on blast for gambling away their shot at doing something memorable by being an actor.
“I cannot stand the people who get wonderful starts in show business, and who abuse it. Lindsay Lohan and Charlie Sheen, for example, although there are plenty of others, too,” she said, as we also reported at the time.
“They are the most blessed people in the world and they don’t appreciate it,” Betty added.
