Betty White 100 Years Young documentary celebration will move forward as planned following the iconic actress death on Thursday night. America’s most beloved star Betty White would have turned 100 years old on January 17th and to mark the momentous milestone, she was inviting fans to celebrate with her in a once in a lifetime event.
“Our hearts mourn today with the passing of Betty White. During the many years we worked with her, we developed a great love and admiration for Betty as a person, and as an accomplished entertainer,” Steve Boettcher and Mike Trinklein said in a statement. “We are thankful for the many decades of delight she brought to everyone. Betty always said she was the ‘luckiest broad on two feet’ to have had a career as long as she did. And honestly, we were the lucky ones to have had her for so long.”
The statement concluded, “We will go forward with our plans to show the film on January 17 in hopes our film will provide a way for all who loved her to celebrate her life — and experience what made her such a national treasure.”
The documentary will show a glimpse into White’s life, television career, and classic moments on The Golden Girls, SNL, Hot in Cleveland, The Proposal, and The Mary Tyler Moore Show, and so much more. Drawing from her final interview, this film provides a look at her career, and insights into what was most important to her. Ryan Reynolds, Tina Fey, Robert Redford, Lin Manuel- Miranda, Clint Eastwood, Morgan Freeman, Jay Leno, Carol Burnett, Craig Ferguson, Jimmy Kimmel, Valerie Bertinelli, James Corden, Wendie Malick, Jennifer Love Hewitt, and dozens of other celebrity friends will offer their tribute to this beloved icon.
