Entertainment Tonight reports:
Happy birthday, Betty White! The iconic actress turned 99 on Sunday, and was flooded with messages of love and appreciation from her famous friends and fans on social media.
The celebrated star — whose entertainment career began in 1939, near the dawn of television itself — has been a part of many beloved TV shows and movies throughout her eight-decades in show business and has amassed countless close friends as a result.
Many of her colleagues took to Twitter and Instagram to commemorate the comedy icon and honor her incomparable legacy — including her fellow Mary Tyler Moore Show co-star Ed Asner.
I still get warm when I see this look. Happy 99 baby. You are a testament to living life on your own terms. Sending you a great big socially distanced kiss. I love you @BettyMWhite pic.twitter.com/DWM9tTthIm
