Betty White: James Corden bit jokes about actress' age

Posted on

CBS

Betty White turns 94 years old next week. It can be hard putting that number in context, but that’s exactly what James Corden tried to do during White’s Tuesday night appearance on The Late Late Show.

The host launched a new game, “Did It Exist,” to quiz fellow guest Amar’e Stoudemire about whether certain famous things existed when White was born in 1922.

First up: the NBA. Stoudemire successfully guessed that his organization is younger than the iconic Golden Girls star. For each right answer, Corden produced a “photo” showcasing White with the object in question: playing in the first NBA game, hanging out with Mickey Mouse, and so on. But some of the questions were harder than they seemed. For instance, is White really older than sliced bread?

“I assume sliced bread has been around for a long time,” Stoudemire said.

“So has Betty White,” White said.

White has an impressive leg up over many institutions we take for granted. She is not, however, older than the state of New Mexico. Watch the full clip below.
