What I would give to look like Betty White at age 98! The actor will be celebrating her 99th birthday on Sunday, Jan. 17, and she still looks as incredible as ever.
White told People that her secret to a long life is to have a great “sense of humor, ” and I think I’ve got that one down already.
“Don’t take yourself too seriously,” she said. “You can lie to others — not that I would — but you cannot lie to yourself.”
Great advice! White also said it helps to have an optimistic attitude because there are so many things in the world that can get you down.
“Just [look] at the positive side and [don’t dwell] on the downside,” she explained, because it “takes up too much energy being negative.”
Not to mention, that “having a good agent” also helps White because it keeps her “busy all the time.”
So how does the Golden Girls alum plan on celebrating her huge milestone this year? Well, even though we’re still in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic, White plans on “visiting with close friends and bringing food to [her] animal friends.”
Every day on this Earth has taught the star to count her blessings, and she feels extremely thankful for her “good health.”
White is actually doing so well that she said, “turning 99 is no different than turning 98.”
We heard that! If anything, White continues to prove that age ain’t nothing but a number. You go, girl!
