Gotta Watch: Betty White is still raunchy at 90

Actress Betty White turns 90 today, and she’s not slowing down any time soon. The former “Golden Girls” star returned to the public eye after a spot in a Snickers commercial that aired during the 2010 Super Bowl. She followed that up with book deals and a gig as the guest host of “Saturday Night Live.” Now we’re showcasing our favorite moments. You’ve Gotta Watch these bawdy Betty moments.

Sex symbol — Betty White answers viewer questions with Larry King in this clip. She takes on everything from Sarah Palin to “Dancing with the Stars.” Watch Larry King ask her if she was a “loose woman.”

'SNL' star — Betty’s turn as host of “Saturday Night Live” earned her an Emmy, and it’s not hard to see why. She agreed to appear on an episode after fans started a Facebook campaign calling for her to host. The ratings went through the roof that night. Watch some of the best parts.

White hot — Betty sits down with CNN to talk about her rise in popularity. She did the Snickers commercial because “Snickers and a bunch of guys on a football field” sounded fun. She also talks about “SNL” and “Golden Girls.” You can also hear from an ad exec about producing that famous commercial here.

In case that's not enough Betty White for you, check out this Funny or Die clip with Kristen Bell and Sigourney Weaver.

      Well said. I don't think there is anyone out there who wouldn't want to be this amazing at 90.

    I thoroughly enjoyed her show last night (and the one following it) and laughed till my sides hurt. It's easy to forget all the outstanding people she's worked with over the years. A National Treasure is what she is! Happy Birthday Betty...you're STILL knocking'em dead!

    Don't want to drop names, yada, yada, yada, but I worked with her in L.A. for one week in the 1980s and she was the dearest, most generous, class act, ever. Just wanted that known~ it's nice when you find out that the people you've always adored from afar truly ARE wonderful. Happy Birthday, Betty!

    Betty White can still show the kids how its done. That dress she wore last night to her 90th show was devine. If she showed up at the golden globes the kiddies will have to go to bed in the night gowns they wore on the red carpet. Betty White is the real deal!

    My mom is a little depressed about turning 80 this year. I point to Betty White who's active and completely alert and ten years older! Thanks, Ms. White, for setting a good example.

    She must of had her face tummy tucked judging from the wrinkles. And her Depends hardly ride-up at all. Modern technology meets the dinosaur.

    Thank you all for your kind words. But really. I would have just made a mess of things without my Depends brand undergarments. Thank you so much though.
