When you have lived as long as Betty White has, you can expect a lot of love on your birthday from Hollywood’s biggest stars. 

Yesterday, the prized jewel of Hollywood, Betty White, turned an impressive 99-years-old. We don’t want to jinx anything, but she may just live forever with how spritely she is. Come on, the woman has more energy than us at 16.

Stars Wish Betty White a Happy Birthday

With a career in the entertainment industry for over 80 years, Betty White has been acting longer than most people live. Between her hilarious personality, compassionate nature and humility, and warm demeanor, White has acquired an outstanding reputation in Hollywood. Maybe stars took to social media to congratulate the actress on this momentous milestone. 

Some birthday wishes were funnier and more colorful than others, reflecting on Betty White’s bad*ss personality. 

Even former President Bill Clinton took to Twitter to celebrate the actress’s life. He said White was “a national treasure,” and we honestly couldn’t agree more. 

“Happy birthday Betty White! You’re a national treasure. Hillary and I hope you have a good one and wish you many, many more. With a little luck, we’ll find a rerun of Golden Girls tonight!”

Can we start a petition for a Mount Rushmore of just Betty’s face? Please, and thank you. 

Betty White also posted a highlight reel of her old series “Pet Set” to her Instagram account yesterday. Very hip, Betty. 

She hilariously referenced how important this birthday was to her and her independence, while also wishing everyone well during the pandemic. 

“Would you believe it?! It’s my 99th birthday, which means I can stay up as late as I want without asking. I am also very pleased to let you know about the re-release of my long-lost series after fifty years! I am just so proud of the “Pet Set.” I hope everyone is well and staying safe. We will get through this.”

In addition, according to the Guinness Book of World Records, Betty White has the longest TV career of anyone in history. Our beloved Betty must be protected at all costs.
