Los Angeles (AFP) It’s true that Betty White has something sinister to say about her Sunday birthday.
“Since I turned 99, I can stay as late as I want without asking permission!” She told the Associated Press in an email.
White’s low-profile plans include feeding a pair of ducks who regularly visit her Los Angeles area. Her birthday meal will be a hot dog and french fries – along with a bouquet of roses – by her old friend and agent, Jeff Weetjas.
The actor’s television credits span from 1949’s “Hollywood on Television” to his 2019 voice role in “Forky Asks a Question,” “The Golden Girls” and “The Mary Tyler Moore Show” among the permanent highlights.
In January alone, White appeared on screen in rematches including “The Golden Girls” and “Hot in Cleveland”; Sandra Bullock’s 2009 film “The Proposal” and the 2018 documentary “Betty White: First Lady of Television” about her life and career.
White’s devotion to animals will be shown next month with the DVD and digital edition of “Betty White’s Pet Set,” a 1970s series in which she visited famous guests and their pets as well as wildlife.
Her work, which always features comedic timing at the top of the stairs, has won five Emmy Awards, including a 2010 award for guest appearances on “Saturday Night Live.”
A native of Oak Park, Illinois, White was married to game show host and producer Allen Louden from 1963 until his death in 1981.
