A close friend of Betty White exclusively told Closer Weekly that the actress has no intentions of retiring anytime soon even at the age of 96.


She has been in the industry for almost eight decades, but it seems White does not intend to stop. Her close friend, Steven J. Boettcher, revealed that White still loves to work.

He shared that as far as her age is concerned, White seems unfazed and still isn’t ready to slow down.

Boettcher is the co-director of the new documentary about White entitled Betty White: First Lady of Television.

Although, White didn’t have to wait long to see the film since she and her closest friends had a private viewing of the documentary in January when she celebrated her 96th birthday.

Boettcher shared that it was during her party with about 400 guests.

He also revealed, “When it was over, she asked, 'Does it have too much Betty White?' It was so cute!"


Even though White has been in the business since her 20’s, White remains to be grateful for her success and her blessings.

In the past, White acknowledged that she has been spoiled by her achievements and said that she was the luckiest.


Boettcher spoke nothing but good things about White. In fact, he said that while filming the documentary, which lasted for about ten years, he got to know the real White.

He said, “She never said a bad word about anyone. Through her career, every cast and crew member loved working with her. She'd remember every one of their names, their kids, and most importantly, the names of their pets!"
