Gay Icon and legendary actress Betty White turns 99 on Jan. 17th and has some wild plans to mark the big day — even in the pandemic.
The “Golden Girls” and “Hot In Cleaveland” actress gave a sneak peak into what she will be doing to mark the momentous occasion.
“What am I doing for my birthday?” White asked. “Running a mile each morning has been curtailed by COVID, so I am working on getting The Pet Set re-released, and feeding the two ducks who come to visit me every day.”
“The Pet Set” was White’s show from the 1970s in which she spotlighted animals and some of her fellow famous animal-loving friends.
The beloved comedic actress said the key to long life includes “having a sense of humor.”
“Just looking at the positive side and not dwelling on the downside,” White said. “Takes up too much energy being negative. Also having a good agent who keeps me busy all the time.”
Like her late ‘Golden Girls’ co-star Bea Arthur, Betty White has been an ally of the LGBTQ community for decades. Speaking up for marriage equality and for lesbian, gay, bisexual & transgender youth throughout her longstanding career.
