Betty White’s ‘100 Years Young’ Birthday Celebration Airs Today

To thank fans ahead of what would have been her 100th birthday celebration today (1.17), Betty White shot a video message on December 20, 2021.

“The video was Betty’s idea,” according to Steven Boettcher, producer of the upcoming film, initially titled “Betty White: 100 Years Young.” “Betty wanted to be gracious and say thank you to her fans. So she got ‘glammed up,’ as she called it, and went on camera.”

Shot from her home in Brentwood, California, the short but sweet message, would turn out to be White’s final public message to her worldwide fanbase as the singer/actress/comedian suffered a Christmas Day stroke which ultimately ended her life on 12.31 at the age of 99.

Betty White, in 1986, will be feted on what would have been her 100th birthday in "Betty White: A Celebration."

In honor of her illustrious career, the video message has been added to a revamped movie tribute that’s planned for a one-night showing in theaters tonight. Titled “Betty White: A Celebration,” the documentary has been expanded to 1,500 theaters nationwide with Fathom Events.

The documentary movie features White and key interviews – including Ryan Reynolds and Carol Burnett – from beloved career chapters including “The Golden Girls,” “Saturday Night Live,” “Hot In Cleveland,” “The Mary Tyler Moore Show” and movies such as “The Proposal,” which started the hilariously spicy mutual-crush between White and Reynolds.
