In honor of Betty White's 99th birthday celebration, American actor Ryan Reynolds shared a hilarious behind-the-scenes throwback video of the veteran actress.


Betty White recently celebrated her 99th birthday and her colleagues from over the years took to social media to wish her a happy birthday, one such person was Ryan Reynolds.

Reynolds posted a throwback video of himself, White, and Sandra Bullock on the set of the movie "The Proposal" on his Instagram story. The video, which showed the feud between himself and White, was hilarious.

The video started with Reynolds and Bullock introducing themselves and talking about the video's purpose when Bullock was called away, and White took her seat.

In the clip, White repeatedly got Reynolds' name wrong and asked him to get her a cup of coffee. The pair soon got engaged in the heat of words, with Reynolds telling her off. He explained the video saying:

"We made this 12 years ago. Betty turns 99 today. But she is 100 percent the funniest person on the planet."


As the video progressed, the caption changed to "Happy Birthday." Reynolds dissed White, saying she was a "bitter old woman" who was bent on frustrating him in the hilarious video.

The funny video ended with White reporting Reynolds to Bullock while hiding the mean things she said to him. Bullock cautioned Reynolds, and he looked exasperated at how White turned the situation around.

The cast and crew of the series looked to be having a lot of fun with White on set as they threw playful jives at her.

Over the years, Bullocks and Reynolds have often been competing for the love of White, with both of them going out of their way to ensure they capture the heart of the multitalented actress.

For her 98th birthday, "The Proposal" stars composed a birthday song for White. As opposed to singing it the usual way, they tried to infuse their sweet words in a bid to outsmart the each other.

White's agent said that she loved the video dearly and that both Reynolds and Bullock were very special to her despite the funny antics they often pulled on her.

This year, various celebrities wished White a happy 99th birthday, with most sharing some of their fondest memories of her. From her colleagues on the cast of "The Golden Girls" to those from "Hot In Cleveland," there were a plethora of wishes.


White's "Hot In Cleveland" co-star Valerie Bertinelli shared hilarious bloopers of White on the series's set. The video, which was almost ten minutes long, showed White's playful side while working.

From missing lines to wrong interpretation of lines, the cast and crew of the series looked to be having a lot of fun with White on set as they threw playful jives at her, and she did the same to them.

With almost eight decades in the entertainment industry, White has endeared herself to many onscreen and offscreen, which is why there was an outpouring of love for her on her special day.
