Dolly Parton and Betty White are two of the most legendary female talents in entertainment history. Despite having a lot in common, Dolly differs from Betty in a big way.
Betty White passed away on New Year’s Eve 2021 at the age of 99, just three weeks before she would have turned 100. In a recent interview, Dolly Parton was asked if she had ever met Betty White and if they were friends. Dolly replied that they had met a time or two and that she was a huge fan of the actress.
“I knew of her work and I just loved her. I just thought she was great,” the 76-year-old said before admitting that she hoped to age as well as Betty White, but didn’t want to live as long as the Golden Girls star.
“I hope to be like that…if I live that long, I hope to be able to be active and productive,” Dolly said. “I hope I don’t live that long, to be honest. I just hope I go out at my peak, whenever that peak might be, and just fall out like that,” the singer said as she snapped her fingers.
