Forever young actress Betty White celebrates her 90th birthday today! The eternally popular former Golden Girls star has witnessed an incredible rise in popularity over the past few years, and she's been working harder than ever.
It's no surprise that a long list of celebrities and friends wanted to honor Betty for her landmark birthday. She was feted in Hollywood last night by stars such as Hugh Jackman, Tina Fey, William Shatner, Morgan Freeman, Chevy Chase, Carol Burnett and former co-stars Mary Tyler Moore and Ed Asner.
Even President Obama took time from his busy schedule to wish Betty a Happy Birthday: "Dear Betty, you look so fantastic and full of energy, I can't believe you're 90 years old. In fact, I don't believe it," the President reads from a birthday card to Betty. "That's why I am writing to ask if you are willing to produce a copy of your long form birth certificate," he says, poking fun at the controversy surrounding his country of birth and legitimacy to be president. He then listens to the theme song from The Golden Girls, "Thank You for Being a Friend".
Like President Obama, I find it hard to believe Betty is 90, and the last remaining Golden Girl. Happy Birthday, America's Favorite Senior Citizen! We love you!!!
