Betty White is the treasure we don't deserve. She may be the one star everyone loves. Yesterday, she got herself trending on Twitter again, which always gets fans nervous -- because she's 95. But don't you worry, 'cause she was on "The Late Late Show with James Corden" last night and absolutely delighted the host, her fellow guests Ben McKenzie and Amy Brenneman, and the audience.
She even charmed the cynical YouTubers; as one wrote in the comments, "Betty White breaks my heart with adoration, when i hear her i want to sit her down, give her a cup of tea and a scone and let her talk about anything she wants to talk about whilst i mow her lawn and take her trash out."
James Corden asked Betty about the regular poker games she plays with her friends, trying to get himself invited. She said they don't play for money, but they play for blood. He asked her to show her best poker face -- if she picked up her cards and had nothing, but wanted to convince him she did have a good hand, how would she look at him.
Her poker face response comes at the :56 mark of the video and it's LOL adorable:In the second video, Corden gets Betty White, Amy Brenneman, and Ben McKenzie to talk about their love stories. Amy has been married for 21 years. Ben -- if you can believe it -- forgot that he met his current co-star/fiancee Morena Baccarin on the set of "The O.C." many years ago. He apparently "blew her off," because he was "an idiot" at 25. Thankfully they reconnected on the recently renewed "Gotham."
Betty's story is, of course, the best, talking about the great love of her life, Allen Ludden, to whom she was married from 1963 to his death in 1981. "God bless him, he kept the romance going all the time. I always felt I was special to him. It does lift a girl's morale a lot. So we had just a great rapport."
