Betty White Shares Secret To Long Life As She Approaches 99th Birthday

The beloved Betty White will celebrate her 99th birthday on Sunday and she says her sense of humor has helped keep her young at heart.

“Don’t take yourself too seriously,” she advised in a recent interview with People. “You can lie to others — not that I would — but you cannot lie to yourself.”

She added, “Just looking at the positive side and not dwelling on the downside. Takes up too much energy being negative. Also having a good agent who keeps me busy all the time.”

How does the Golden Girls star feel about turning 99? Betty said,  “I am blessed with good health so turning 99 is no different than turning 98.”

She is looking forward to a quiet birthday celebration  “visiting with close friends and bringing food to my animal friends.”

We love you Betty!
