Betty White is turning the big 100 on January 17th, and she's celebrating in only the most fitting way: with a one-night-only theatrical event! "Betty White: 100 Years Young - A Birthday Celebration" will air in 900 different theaters across the states on January 17th.
The event promises a behind-the-scenes look at her life, including her relationships with her staff, friends, and all of her work as an animal advocate. It'll also show highlight reels from her career, like footage from her time on "The Mary Tyler Moore Show," "Hot in Cleveland," and even her "SNL" appearances.
Of course, it's not a true celebration without celebrities. The show's guest list includes names like Ryan Reynolds, Tina Fey, Robert Redford, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Clint Eastwood, Morgan Freeman, Jay Leno, Carol Burnett, Craig Ferguson, Jimmy Kimmel, Valerie Bertinelli, James Corden, Wendie Malick and Jennifer Love Hewitt. In a statement, White said, “Who doesn’t love a party?!? This one is gonna be great," and we must agree. Tickets go on sale today, December 17 through "Fathom Events."
- ONE MORE THING! This celebration comes just months before the inaugural "The Golden Girls" fan convention (Golden Con "Thank You For Being a Fan) is set to happen in Chicago from April 22nd-24th. Betty's spokesman, Jeff Witjas, confirmed that she will not in attendance, saying, "At 99 and about to be 100 (on Jan. 17), Betty no longer travels by air.”
