Betty White then & now

Certain film stars exist in our lifetime that are completely irreplaceable. They range from female to male actors, and can be timeless staples in our society, or up and coming stars whose stage presence is undeniable. These actors can be philanthropists, or complete and utter wrecks. It doesn’t matter either way – if a celebrity captures our heart, it matters little to us how they spend their free time. Some actors have gotten famous in cities like Cincinnati, or Chicago, but no matter where it took place -the pure on-screen magic they create is undeniable.

Betty White is without a doubt one of these actors. She has starred in movies, and has also worked her magic in major motion pictures as an extra. She has her own television show, and at 91 years young, she has yet another title to add to her belt. Just his week, White was given the Guinness World Record for “longest TV career for an entertainer (female).” Her career has spanned a whopping 74 years, and not a day has gone by that she has not been entertaining audiences in some capacity. She made her debut in 1939, and since has starred in countless television shows such as “The Golden Girls,” and “The Mary Tyler Moore Show.” White also appeared on “The Carol Burnett Show,” and currently stars in TV Land’s hit show, “Hot in Cleavland.” White also holds the oldest host title for “Saturday Night Live,” and hosted two seasons of, “Betty White’s Off Their Rockers.”

While Betty White has spend over seven decades on screen, her true passion lies within the animal kingdom. She has been a long financial and emotional supporter of the San Diego Zoo, and promotes animal rights throughout the world.
