Picture it: Neil Patrick Harris getting it on with Betty White!

About three months ago, Harris revealed to us that he'd like the 87-year-old Golden Girl to guest star on How I Met Your Mother.

"I think Barney should hook up with Betty White at some point," Harris said about his womanizing television alter-ego. "That's my big pitch. We'll see if it happens."

What does White think? Read on to find out…

"Ohhh, wouldn't that be fun?" White gushed to us at last night's Hollywood premiere of her new movie, Love N' Dancing. "I would love that. I'm a big fan of his. It would be great. I hope it happens."

In fact, White said she's ready to put on her cougar claws for the chance to get a piece of Harris. "I would hit on him. I know that much," she said of a possible storyline. "That would be so much fun."

One gig White won't be doing? Following her pal Cloris Leachman onto Dancing With the Stars. "No, no," she said when we asked about DWTS. "Cloris did such a good job that I'm not going near there."
