She’s the national treasure who just turned 99!
Betty White celebrated her 99th birthday over the weekend and shared with People her top secret to staying young.
Would you believe it?! It's my 99th birthday which means I can stay up as late as I want without asking. I am also very pleased to let you know about the re-release of my long-lost series after fifty years! I am just so proud of the “Pet Set”. I hope everyone is safe and well. pic.twitter.com/uyn1IEXUqb

The Golden Girls actress told People she always prefers to look on the bright side of life and credits a good sense of humor with staying youthful.
“Don’t take yourself too seriously. You can lie to others — not that I would — but you cannot lie to yourself,” White told People.
“Just looking at the positive side and not dwelling on the downside,” White shared. “Takes up too much energy being negative.”
The actress, who told People she is fortunate enough to have been “blessed with good health,” also credits keeping busy with staying young.
“Also having a good agent who keeps me busy all the time,” White joked.
