Betty White Quips She's Sexiest At 91; 'Golden Girl' Celebrates 90th Birthday, Again

  on

Betty White says she is sexier than ever at the ripe old age of 91.

She's the only surviving "Golden Girl" from the 1980s comedy that starred Bea Arthur as Dorothy Petrillo Zbornak, Rue McClanahan as Blanche Devereaux and Estelle Getty as Sophia Petrillo. And of course the naïve but sweet Rose Nylund was played by the beloved White. 

It’s been decades since the show's run, but the 91-year-old White is as famous as ever. She’s become a pop culture phenomenon and doesn’t seem to have aged all that much.

The star is enjoying all the perks that come along with being a star in her golden years and even joked that her sex appeal has only increased with age.

As she approaches centenarian status, the “Golden Girl” explained:

"Best thing about being in your 90s is you're spoiled rotten," People magazine quoted the "Hot in Cleveland" star. "Everybody spoils you like mad and they treat you with such respect because you're old. Little do they know, you haven't changed. You haven't changed in [the brain]. You're just 90 every place else."

White has recently recovered from the flu and quipped that she is much sexier than last year:

"Now that I'm 91, as opposed to being 90, I'm much wiser. I'm much more aware and I'm much sexier."

"Betty White’s Second Annual 90th Birthday Special" aired on NBC Tuesday evening. Blake Shelton, Bill Cosby, Whoopi Goldberg and Bill Clinton were on hand to honor the elderly star, along with her "Cleveland" co-stars Valerie Bertinelli, Jane Leeves and Wendie Malick.
