Betty White

Betty White is everywhere these days: The Proposal, SAG's lifetime achievement award and even getting tackled during a Super Bowl commercial.

But what does she think about the recent online campaign launched to convince Lorne Michaels to have White host SNL? As of Monday afternoon, nearly 330,000 people have signed on as fans of the "Betty White to Host SNL (please?)!" page on Facebook.

Well, I just spoke to the Golden Girls legend…

"I'm just amazed," White said from Las Vegas, where she was honored earlier today by the Morris Animal Foundation at the P&G Pet Care luncheon. "I would think by now that they've had such an overdose of Betty White that they'd be throwing rocks instead."

So, if SNL does come calling, would the 88-year-old comedy icon do it?

"That would depend on scheduling and all that," she said. "But who knows? You can't ever say yes or no or never—you just wait to see what happens."

White, for the record, is not officially attached to the online campaign. "I don't know where it came from," she said. "I have no idea where it started, but it just keeps growing."


Betty White certainly isn't the only animal lover in Hollywood. Check out our Very Important Pets photo gallery.
