Betty White turned 95 today and she's just as charming as ever! Anchor Katie Couric met with White in Los Angeles to talk about her secrets to a long and vibrant life, her career success and how she has maintained such a positive outlook on life.
White says, “I just appreciate the fact that people have been so kind to me all these years,” and after 75 years working in showbiz, she adds, “the fact that I’m still working — that’s the thing I’m most grateful for, that I still get asked for jobs.”
Despite all the negativity in the news, White says the country does seem divided, but she considers herself an optimist.
“It’s the time to buckle down and work positively as much as you can,” she says. “Just think, ‘All right, there’s nothing I can do about that right now. But I can do my best in my little circle. So if I do that, maybe you’ll do your best and we’ll get through this.’”
So perhaps the secret to a long and happy life isn't so complicated. Take a tip from Betty White: she's endlessly grateful, she embraces her weird, she loves animals and she tries to always be optimistic. There you go folks. Easy Peasy.
