BETTY White is getting the recognition she deserves!
The 88-year-old Proposal actress — who’s been working in Hollywood for six decades — has been named the Entertainer of the Year by the Associated Press.
“It’s ridiculous,” White said in response to the award. “They haven’t caught on to me, and I hope they never do.”
White then discussed her famous her hosting stint on Saturday Night Live — an opportunity she turned down three times before finally taking it on.
“I thought I was so Californian and it’s so New York-oriented that I would be like a fish out of water,” White said. “This time, my agent said, `No, you’ve got to do it.’ … But I was scared to death.
“It was the insecurity, I think, that had me scared.
“I thought, ‘How do you not look at Tina Fey when you’re standing right next to her?’
“It’s been phenomenal, but everybody keeps congratulating me on my resurgence and my big comeback.
“I haven’t been away, guys. I’ve been working steadily for the last 63 years.”
White recently spoke out in favor of gay marriage.
“I don’t care who anybody sleeps with. If a couple has been together all that time – and there are gay relationships that are more solid than some heterosexual ones – I think it’s fine if they want to get married,” she said.
“I don’t know how people can get so anti-something. Mind your own business, take care of your affairs, and don’t worry about other people so much.”[imagebrowser id=686]
