Betty White Immortalized In Wax
THE OLDEST CELEBRITY TO BE HONORED IN THE LEGENDARY ATTRACTION’S OVER 200-YEAR HISTORY
Madame Tussauds Hollywood and Betty White unveiled the first ever Betty White wax figure on June 4th at the Madame Tussauds Hollywood attraction.
The unveiling of the Betty White wax figure made history, as she is the oldest celebrity to sit for Madame Tussauds artists.
Truly the original “America's Sweetheart,” Madame Tussauds is thrilled to celebrate the actress’ accomplishments in film, television and influence in pop culture, timed to her 90th birthday and her recent comedy smash “Hot in Cleveland” on TV Land and "Betty White's Off Their Rockers" on NBC.
Another iconic Hollywood notable, Pink’s Hot Dogs, served an exclusive hot dog in Betty's honor. Dubbed the "Naked Dog" because that’s the only way Betty takes her hot dogs- plain and simple!
Joining Hollywood legends
Betty’s figure will join the ranks of Hollywood legends including Marilyn Monroe, Audrey Hepburn and Humphrey Bogart, as well as Hollywood’s new guard of icons like Lady Gaga, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, and Will Smith. The “Hot in Cleveland” series finale will air on June 6th on TV Land.
"I want to thank Madame Tussauds Hollywood for taking their sweet time in making my wax figure,” said White. “Would it have killed them to do this 50 years ago before gravity took over?,” she quipped.
“Seriously though, it will be an honor to stand among the greats like George Burns and Lucille Ball.”
