Betty White on 'The Tonight Show': Where do we sign the petition for sainthood already?

Posted on

Betty White continued her one-woman charm tour with an appearance on The Tonight Show last night, taking the opportunity to talk about her amazing year, flirt a little with fellow guest Hugh Jackman, and — of course! — get in a reference to one of her beloved dogs, golden retriever Pontiac. Watch the clip here, and I implore you to pay close attention to Betty’s ever-genius facial expressions:

With her cute little cringes when Jay compliments her, how can you not just want to squeeze her like you would your own grandmother? And her banter about doing a nude scene with Hugh — priceless! “It’s a dirty job,” she said, “but somebody’s gotta do it.” Lastly, I loved that Jay dredged up the ancient clip (“from an Egyptian tomb,” Jay joked) of her singing. Are you surprised that Betty can sing, too? One thing is clear, PopWatchers: She can do everything! Is there anything Ms. Betty can’t do?
