Iconic American comedian and actress Betty White, whose groundbreaking career spanned decades, has died at age 99, US media outlets have reported.
Jeff Witjas, White’s agent and close friend, told People magazine in a statement on Friday that “even though Betty was about to be 100, I thought she would live forever”.
Witjas adds, “Betty died peacefully in her sleep at her home early this morning.”
A trailblazer and pioneer in media, Betty had the longest running career for any woman in TV prior to her death — starring in multiple shows over the past 8 decades, starting way back in 1939.
Betty is perhaps most famous for her lead role as Rose Nylund in “The Golden Girls,” which ran from 1985 to 1992. She’d been in TONS of other big hits throughout her life though.
Meanwhile, Ryan Reynolds too penned a heartfelt tribute for Betty White. “The world looks different now,” Reynolds wrote on Instagram alongside a photo of the iconic comedian. “She was great at defying expectation. She managed to grow very old and somehow, not old enough.
We’ll miss you, Betty.” Reynolds and White, who co-starred in the 2009 romantic comedy The Proposal, have remained a close bond over the years. The Deadpool actor jokingly referred to the famed comic as his ex-girlfriend on numerous occasions.
