This week, Betty sat down with People magazine to talk about her up and coming projects and what she's up to these days. Betty revealed the secret to living a happy life for an incredible 100 years! She will celebrate her centennial birthday on January 17, 2022, and told the magazine, "I'm so lucky to be in such good health and feel so good at this age. It's amazing."
According to White, the secret is having a positive outlook and to keep a smile on your face. White claims that she was "born a cockeyed optimist." She credits her positive mindset and her ability to find the silver lining to any situation to her mother's character.

The Golden Girls superstar hasn't lost one ounce of her sense of humor, and also credits her remarkable health to her diet. "I try to avoid anything green," she joked. "I think it's working."
And Hollywood is ready to celebrate her big birthday alongside White herself. Next January, the television legend will mark her 100th birthday with a one-day only theatrical event titled, Betty White: 100 Years Young — A Birthday Celebration.
The evening is meant to be one big tribute to everything Betty White has accomplished in her long and illustrious career on television and film as the first woman to produce a national TV show, and the first woman to receive an Emmy nomination! It's sure to be a magical night.
And Betty doesn't show signs of stopping anytime soon either. Let's wait and see if she'll be back up on the screen once again in the near future. One thing is for certain: wherever Betty goes, her fans will surely follow!
