With age comes wisdom and with wisdom, comes respect the old saying goes. But according to Betty White, the only thing that she is getting with age is more wrinkles.
In celebration of her 91st birthday, the "Golden Girls" star announced that people treat her differently now just because she is older. And while the star enjoys being spoiled, she claims that nothing about her has really changed.
"Best thing about being in your 90s is you're spoiled rotten," she told People magazine. "Everybody spoils you like mad and they treat you with such respect because you're old. Little do they know, you haven't changed. You haven't changed in [the brain]. You're just 90 every place else."
The singer then went on to joke about how much has changed for her in one year.
"Now that I'm 91, as opposed to being 90, I'm much wiser," she kidded. "I'm much more aware and I'm much sexier."
Users agreed that White was both "youthful" and "beautiful" due to her bubbly personality as a comedian.
"Betty perfected the ability to grow old and still maintain youth in everyday life," one user wrote on the Us blog.
White's birthday was celebrated on NBC with the special, "Betty White's Second Annual 90th Birthday Special." Last year White had come down with a case of the flu over her 90th birthday celebration.
White, a member of the Unity Church according to multiple reports, has contributed to a number of charity events in the past. Amongst her many other awards for acting she was also honored by the American Veterinary Medical Association and made an honorary forest ranger for her work alongside Smokey the Bear.
