Betty White, 98, Credits Her Longevity To Vodka And Hot Dogs

January 17, 2019

Each year when January 17th rolls around, the internet collectively gets worried when they see that Betty White is trending.

However, it's not cause for concern but rather celebration because White has gotten a year older!

How does Betty stay so sharp and positive going into the 98th year?

"Hot dogs and vodka" she told Parade are the secrets to good health and longevity.

Even at 98, she's punky as ever.

Some of her friends have joked that she has the diet of a teenage boy

White also had some other advice that we could benefit from: “Enjoy life. Accentuate the positive, not the negative. It sounds so trite, but a lot of people will pick out something to complain about, rather than say, ‘Hey, that was great!’ It’s not hard to find great stuff if you look."'

To promote the interview, White posted a photo of the Parade Magazine cover on her Instagram (yep, she's that cool) with the caption, "Started celebrating my birthday a little early with @parademagazine. That's a LOT of candles!!!"

White got a special birthday shoutout from her "Proposal" co-stars Sandra Bullock and Ryan Reynolds. They teamed up to sing "Happy Birthday" in a video shared on social media and then began fighting over who loves Betty more.

“What does Sandy do for you every year?” the "Deadpool" actor asks. “Does she like, show up and hand-deliver flowers to you wearing nothing but black socks and a dozen gold bracelets, just like you requested? Doubt it.”

He then breaks down in tears as Sandy hits some off-key high-notes.

Happy 98th, Betty.
