For about eight decades, Betty White has been making the world laugh while she seems to have a ball in front of the camera. Even as she grows older and her hair turns greyer, the iconic actress still remains professionally active. And did finally crossing the age of 90 stop her from acting and, more importantly, being her loveable self? Absolutely not!

The actress turned 98 this year and has yet another film in the making. To make Christmas in 2020 even more jolly, Lifetime revealed that White will be starring in their holiday movie where she "helps whip would-be Santas into shape, spreading the true meaning of Christmas," according to ET.

The news was happily welcomed by fans because no matter how many roles White does, you can never get enough of her. She continues to have the spark in her smile and the zest in her spirit.

Even her "hobbies" seem to be similar to someone who would be far, far younger than her.

At the age of 94, the actress still loved the idea of dating, but had only one problem. "Nobody asks me!" she told Al Roker on Today. "Who's gonna want to ask out a 94-year-old woman? It just doesn't happen."

Oh... she would be surprised.

White is famously known for her role as the naive Rose on Golden Girls. But she admitted that she sees more of her real self in the man-obsessed Sue Ann Nives from The Mary Tyler Moore Show.

And why is that so? "Well, she likes men. So does Betty," the adored entertainer said.

So what if she's in her 90s? Men were still something she was excited about as she said in the interview, about them, "It's kind of a hobby of mine. The men don't know it."

After White had crossed the age of 90 in the year 2012, she appeared in an interview with Piers Morgan where he talked about the effect she still has on men.

Morgan mentioned how it took him about 15 months to get her on his show. "You're the busiest 90-year-old ever," he said, according to a CNN transcript.

"Nothing wrong with that if you're enjoying it," White replied.

Morgan suggested one way for her to make it up to him for the delay of getting her on his show and that was her kissing his "chubby fingers."

White played along and Morgan said, "Oh, my God. This is the most erotic thing that's ever happened to me."

"You poor baby," White spontaneously said and laughed.

Calling her remarkably glamorous on the show, Morgan also said, "My wife's last words to me tonight before I came down here were, 'Watch yourself with Betty White.' She said, 'She's the ultimate cougar.'"

And to that, White said, "I am, I am. In my own head. Not any place else, but in my head, I am the ultimate cougar, animal lover that I am."

Morgan even mentioned how White is loved by several generations the same way and even his own children found her cool. "I'm keeping you away from the oldest," Morgan joked about his son who was 18 at the time.

For White, age is not something that can stop her from being the lively spirit that she is, "I think old age is all up in here," pointing to her head. The award-winning actress went on to say, "I just love what I do, as I say, for a living. And the fact that I'm still getting offers at this age is incredible."

Although in the interview she said she was still interested in men and did go out with them, White said that she never fell in love and the reason was Allen Ludden, her third husband. White said she spent "18 wonderful years with Allen Ludden" while they were married until he passed away from cancer.

Morgan asked, "Ever since that day have you ever even really looked at another man...?"

"...I look at them. I even go out with them. And I enjoy them. But that was it as far as I was concerned. There will never be another one," White said.

There will never be another Allen Ludden in White's life because for her, he was the "love of my life completely."
