Though she just celebrated her 99th birthday, the legendary Betty White looks stronger and happier than ever. To prove everyone that age is just a number, she also has the sort of activities you usually see at teenagers. Recently, the famous actress posed next to a massive bear and she even snapped him a kiss.
One of the most popular comedians America ever had, Betty White is also known for the love she always carried for animals. Her affection and gentleness for animals made her one of the world’s most notorious animal rights advocate. For over 40 years, she volunteered for the Los Angeles Zoo and the Morris Animal Foundation. From the tiniest kitten or puppy, to massive bears, Betty loves them all from the bottom of her heart.
Recently, the 99-year-old lady won everyone’s heart with an adorable moment she shared with one of the Los Angeles Zoo’s residents – a brown bear named Bam Bam. Though the scene was the purest form of love a human and a massive beast can share, Betty admits she was pretty nervous at first.
“It was the scariest thing I’ve ever done,” she said, “It was really funny stuff, but it was a challenge. On the other hand, I’m actually the luckiest old broad alive. Half my life is working in a profession I love and the other half is working with animals.”
Everyone who knows Betty say, she’s nothing but a charming person with the kindest heart. One of her many friends, Tom Sullivan, once said about her: “I believe Betty White can charm the savage beast. Though Betty always treats people with dignity, respect, and charm, she has a far closer relationship to animals than she does people.”
