The Internet Is All About Betty White to Help Celebrate Her 95th Birthday
If you looked at what was trending on Twitter on January 17, you may have noticed that Betty White was the number one trend and you were concerned that the worst had happened. But fear not…
…because today is Betty White’s 95th birthday (and she doesn’t look a day over 39).
White was born on January 17, 1922 in Oak Park, Illinois. Her career in entertainment spans over eight decades, with her most iconic roles being on television sitcoms The Mary Tyler Moore Show and Golden Girls. And in 2013, the Guinness Book of World Records recognized White as having the longest TV career for any female entertainer.
Shortly before her 95th birthday, White spoke to Yahoo Global News anchor Katie Couric about all of the attention that she receives on the internet.
“I just appreciate the fact that people have been so kind to me all these years,” White said. “The fact that I’m still working. That’s the thing I’m most grateful for—that I still get asked for jobs.”
While it is still unclear why millennials have such an affinity for the legendary actress, White greatly appreciates the attention.
On her 95th birthday, people celebrated Betty White’s birthday on Twitter:
Betty White: born in 1922
Sliced bread: given to us in 1926.
Sliced bread is the best thing since Betty White.
