In honor of Betty White’s birthday, here are five things you may not know about The Golden Girls star:
White was born in 1922, before sliced bread, ballpoint pens and bubble gum. White originally auditioned to play Blanche on The Golden Girls. She swapped roles with co-star Rue McClanahan in the casting process. White married three times, but she had a longtime crush on another Hollywood star…Robert Redford.
Her true love? Animals.
In 2013, White set the Guinness World Record for Longest TV career for an Entertainer (Female).
