We can all agree that when it comes to America’s sweetheart Betty White age is just a number. Even at the age of 98, she still sparks positive energy and reminds us that if you do something with the devotion and love she puts into her acting, you do become irreplaceable.
White’s career in the movie industry both on the screen and behind the camera has lasted for 80 years and she’s still not ready to quit doing what she does best. She’s best known for her award winning roles in “The Mary Tyler Moore Show” and “The Golden Girls.”
Recently, White spoke to Parade of the life in Hollywood and how to stay sane in such world. She recalled the time when she was starting her career and how she was rejected many times. However, being told that she wasn’t ‘photogenic’ and that she should probably try herself in some other job didn’t stop her from trying, and that led her to where she is today.
“You just keep plugging away. You don’t give up,” White said.
This award winning actress has some advice for those who would love to follow her path and be part of the Hollywood glam. “Do your work, learn your lines and come in prepared,” she said. “Don’t think you can wing it, because you can’t. We’re in show business, which is fun, but take your business seriously, because it is a serious business.”
White tends to be a huge optimist about life and says she has a lot to be thankful for.
“I know it sounds corny, but I try to see the funny side and the upside, not the downside. I get bored with people who complain about this or that. It’s such a waste of time,” she said.
She believes people should live by the notion that no matter what happens, life can be great.
