In an interview, White talked about her health and happiness.

“I am blessed with good health,” she told People, “so turning 99 is no different than turning 98.”

She told People it is a sense of humor that keeps her going.

“Don’t take yourself too seriously. You can lie to others — not that I would — but you cannot lie to yourself,” White said.

Betty White was born in 1922, in Oak Park, Illinois.
