As if Betty White wasn’t already cooler than your grandma. The 93-year-old actor joined Instagram earlier this week. Her first post was a dedication to Hot in Cleveland, the TV Land original series White has been working on since 2010. The picture featured White with her costars, Valerie Bertinelli, Wendie Malick, and Jane Leeves. They just wrapped up the filming of their series finale.
In less than twenty-four hours, White has racked up over 40,000 Instagram followers. This proves that no matter how many hashtags we use, we’re never going to be as cool as White.
While we have you, here’s a fun fact about White. Originally, she was asked to play Blanche Devereaux in the famous, NBC sitcom The Golden Girls. Blanche was the beautiful, Southern belle who (to put it lightly) really, really liked men. White played this role a lot and was afraid of being typecast, so she asked to play Rose Nylon, the kindhearted yet often airheaded lady. The role of Blanche ultimately went to Rue McClanahan, who passed away in 2010.
