Betty White is gearing up to celebrate her centennial birthday on Jan. 17!
Betty White revealed the secret to living a happy life for 100 years in a feature with People magazine. “I’m so lucky to be in such good health and feel so good at this age. It’s amazing”, she said.
The secret to her upbeat nature, according to White, is the simple fact she was “born a cockeyed optimist.” She credits her positive mindset and her ability to find the silver lining to any situation to her mother.
As for her diet, White jokes: “I try to avoid anything green. I think it’s working.”
White has had a dream career in Hollywood. She had unforgettable roles on The Golden Girls and The Mary Tyler Moore Show. Later in her career, she had iconic parts on Hot in Cleveland and in the 2009 film The Proposal.
Nowadays, White enjoys a quiet life in Los Angeles playing crossword puzzles and card games. She also likes to watch animal documentaries, Jeopardy! and sports, particularly golf. White, who is a longtime animal welfare advocate, is also a longtime supporter of the Wildlife Learning Center, the Monterey Bay Aquarium and Actors and Others for Animals.
The television legend will mark the celebration of her 100th birthday with a one-day-only theatrical event titled, “Betty White: 100 Years Young — A Birthday Celebration.”
Special screenings for the centenary celebration will take place on January 17, 2022, at 900 theatres in the US, with screenings set to begin mostly at 1 p.m. PT/4 p.m. ET, though there are some evening screenings available. Fans can find their nearest theatre by entering their ZIP code at Fathom Events.
The film will follow White in her day-to-day life and also include behind-the-scenes footage on television and film sets, her relationship with her office staff, her animal advocacy, entertaining guests in her home and finally taking fans to her actual birthday party.
