Betty White's Birthday Special: 'I'm Much Sexier At 91'

Posted: Updated:

There's no slowing down America's Golden Girl.

"Betty White's 2nd Annual 90th Birthday Special" aired last night on NBC and the reigning queen of comedy had nothing but brilliant words to say about her turning the big 9-1. "Best thing about being in your 90s is you're spoiled rotten," People magazine quoted. "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."

"Now that I'm 91, as opposed to being 90, I'm much wiser," the "Hot in Cleveland" star continued. "I'm much more aware and I'm much sexier."

And that sexy, wise attitude might just land Madame White in office. As a special birthday surprise, President Bill Clinton announced via video message that he has a 2016 presidential candidate in mind and it's none other than the "Golden Girls" star herself.

"In a time when our nation is still bitterly divided, it's important to have a leader who's won the respect and affection of our nation in the way that Betty has," Clinton said. "After all, she's gained praise all the way from President Obama to George W. Of course I'm talking about Presidents Barack Obama and George Washington."

Actress Lily Tomlin also had nothing but warm words and praise for the last-standing original "Golden Girl." "The issue of her being 91 doesn't exist for me," Tomlin said in a video message for White's birthday. "I don't think of it, I can't imagine that she's 91. It just doesn't compute. To me, Betty is ageless. She could be as young as 30, I don't know how old she is. She's a puzzle and a miracle."
