Iconic actress Betty White is gearing up to celebrate her 96th birthday on Jan. 17, and she’s going to ring in the big occasion with a little help from two of her secret weapons.
In a recent interview, the “Golden Girl” attributed her long, healthy life to two very important things: vodka and hotdogs.
“Probably in that order,” she joked before giving some additional advice. “Enjoy life. Accentuate the positive, not the negative. It sounds so trite, but a lot of people will pick out something to complain about, rather than say, ‘Hey, that was great!’ It’s not hard to find great stuff if you look.”
