Betty White Shared Her Tips For Living a Good Life in Final Interview

Betty’s The Proposal co-star Ryan Reynolds is one of the many actors who have spoken out in the wake of her death. He wrote in a tribute, “The world looks different now. She was great at defying expectation. She managed to grow very old and somehow, not old enough. We’ll miss you, Betty. Now you know the secret.”

The day before Betty died in her Beverly Hills home, she and Ryan enjoyed a funny exchange. In her interview with People, she joked that “Ryan can’t get over his thing for me,” to which the Deadpool star joked, “I’m absolutely sick of the media exploiting past relationships just to drive clicks.”

Jokes aside, Betty’s one true love was really her late husband Allen Ludden, who died from stomach cancer in 1981. Her assistant, Kiersten Mikelas, shared with People that Betty kept a picture of Allen by her bed and “blows him a kiss every morning.”

Mikelas added, “At night when she opens the shutters, she blows a kiss to him up in the sky. He is on her mind constantly.”
