As her fans already know, 96-year old Betty White can still hang. In fact, as her friend and former co-star Jennifer Love Hewitt recalled on Tuesday night’s Late Late Show with James Corden, she’s all about the vodka and pizza. Read on for the latest.
As if Betty could possibly get any cooler, Jennifer shared an amazing story about the two of them—who starred together in the 2011 drama The Last Valentine—going out and getting trashed together one night.
The already crazy night took and an even more unexpected turn when Betty invited Jennifer up to her hotel room for a “nightcap,” which could mean a lot of things to a lot of different people. But for Betty, Jennifer said, "Her nightcap is gummy bears. I mean, shut the front door and lock it. She’s perfect. We got drunk and we had gummy bears, and it was amazing." Hilarious!
It all started after a long day of filming, when afterward Jennifer found herself at the bar with Betty. "She loves pizza and vodka. Right? She’s all of us,” Jennifer told James. "One night we were filming, and we went out. I was like, ‘Oh my gosh, I’m going on a date with Betty White.' It’s the most nervous date I’ve ever been on in my life.”
It turned out to be a pretty wild night, too. The I Know What You Did Last Summer star continued, “We’re chatting and having the best time. I don’t drink a lot, so maybe three-and-a-half vodkas in, I’m like, ‘Woo, I’m feeling this dinner with Betty White, OK.’ So, we go to leave and it’s great and then all of the sudden I see that Betty’s sort of going this way starts to sway.”
Whether it was the vodka or the long day’s work, Jennifer decided to take matters into her own hands and help Betty out. "I was like, ‘Oh my god, I am like the bodyguard of a national treasure. You have got to snap it together and don’t kill Betty White on your date!’ So we get her from the bushes. She didn’t really go in the bushes, but she was on her way,” she revealed.
