Betty White Shares Secrets To A Happy Life Before 100th Birthday: ‘i Try To Avoid Anything Green’

Betty White has lived the kind of life few people can ever say they have.

Ahead of her 100th birthday on January 17, the actress is more beloved than ever. Her roles on The Mary Tyler Moore Show, The Golden Girls, and Hot In Cleveland have endeared her to generations of viewers. These days, Betty spends more time out of the spotlight at her Los Angeles home.

It's for that reason that it's so special to hear from Betty herself. As she prepares to turn 100 and celebrate her centennial birthday, Betty opened up to People about what's made her life so full of joy and laughter.
Betty White may not be super active in the entertainment industry these days, but the actress and comedienne is as beloved as ever. Countless people who have had the good fortune to work with Betty throughout the years have raved about the special presence she has on any set.

Comedian Carol Burnett, a legend in her own right, spoke to People about working with Betty over the years.

"She'd come on my show, [The Carol Burnett Show], and if there was a tinge of risqué humor in one of our sketches, she'd roll with it and make it even funnier and add a little wink to show that she was thinking of something sexy," Carol shared.

"She's not a stand-up. She's not a jokester. It's the way she can twist a line to get a laugh."

Those who have worked with her more recently, like Sandra Bullock, have attested to how much of an expert Betty is at her craft.

"Timing isn't easy in comedy, because you have to navigate other people's timing," Sandra said.

"Betty pivots like I have never seen, making it look seamless. The rest of us just remain silent and pray we're not cut out of the scene."
Turning 100 is a huge deal, a moment few get to experience and even fewer get to enjoy. Betty considers herself incredibly lucky to be among that group.

"I'm so lucky to be in such good health and feel so good at this age," she shared.

"It's amazing."
Betty says that being positive has been at the center of leading a happy, healthy life. She admits to being "born a cockeyed optimist."

"I got it from my mom, and that never changed," she said.

"I always find the positive."
