Betty White: Hollywood’s Longest-Living Actress Plans To Play Poker For Her Birthday

Betty White, the Golden Girl, social media meme and Hollywood’s longest-living actress, is about to celebrate her 95th birthday. In her typical too-cool-for-her-age fashion, White says she plans to play poker and drink vodka with her friends to celebrate.

A close friend of the actress says that White would like to celebrate her 95th journey around the sun with her best girlfriends, enjoying a home poker game with a vodka tonic.

Still happy, active, and far from slowing down, White is up for more mental challenges than poker. Another friend, Tom Sullivan, says she enjoys reading newspapers every day. She also likes to tackle at least two crossword puzzles to stay sharp.

When it comes to breaking a sweat White plays golf or takes a walk once a week around her California home with her physical therapist. She watches golf tournaments and practices her golf swing in her living room. According to one of her dear friends, her only complaint is that she cannot perfect her flat-iron swing.

So put it all together: poker, crosswords, walking, and golf, and you have a pretty solid formula for health and happiness well into old age. White would add hotdogs and vodka to that list, as according to her friend and Hot in Cleveland co-star Wendy Malick, the two treats are White’s “secret weapons” for long life.

White has said that she plans to use her secret weapons and keep up her active lifestyle until she reaches 120 years old – the same age as Moses from the bible.
