The stunning transformation of Betty White
The world was gifted the beloved Betty White before sliced bread was even a thing. And in a lifetime spanning almost 100 years, she's spent a record-breaking number of those on television. Well, ever since that was invented. "I don't remember the '80s… that was before my time," White joked with CNN. Modest and self-effacing, she's quick to brush off a well-deserved compliment or hard-earned accolade, as if she were gently shooing away a gift belonging to someone else. But even so, the praise just keeps coming. "There's a reason why there is only one Betty White," Jamie Lee Curtis once said, "[Betty], you've … had good health and fantastic opportunities, and you've knocked them out of the ballpark."
"When I think of Betty White, I always see her with a big open smile," Rue McClanahan — ahem, Blanche Devereaux — said, remembering her closest Golden Girls pal. White's bright, rosy-cheeked face, sparkling eyes, and irresistibly warm spirit make this extraordinarily talented performer, producer, and writer a woman who has done it all and happily found her way into the hearts of America, time and time again. And if that GoFundMe campaign to "protect Betty White from 2016" was any indication, the 95-year-old White has become an indispensable national treasure, adored by generations of fans — still delighting us with her flawless sense of humor. Let's take a look at the stunning transformation of this incredible woman.
