Betty White on Lindsay Lohan: So Ungrateful and Unprofessional!

by at . Comments

Didn't see this one coming. Betty White went OFF in a recent interview about stars who selfishly "abuse" their fame and let their careers spiral out of control.

Lindsay Lohan and Charlie Sheen for example.

White told the Daily Mail (UK) that she "cannot stand" over-the-top lifestyles and stars like LiLo go get "wonderful starts in show business and who abuse it."

Lindsay Lohan: An Ungrateful Snot?

Betty wasn't done: “They party too much, don’t learn their lines, are unprofessional, and grumble about everything. I think they are terribly ungrateful.”

In her day, the 89-year-old (!) White adds, "We considered ourselves lucky ... and were always on our best behavior in public." Lindsay? Mmmnotsomuch.

"They are the most blessed people in the world and they don't get it."

Pretty much. Not that they appreciate this point... which is sorta Betty's entire point. Lindsay Lohan, of course, was like, so shocked and hurt by all this.

"Wow. I've always been a fan of hers," she replied. "It's a bit strange when people feel they must speak publicly about others. Especially a grown woman."

Whose side are you on?



Peter - "And why cannot I rightly believe she's just an old liniment sniffing blowhard?" If you can say that, it's clear you don't remember the good old days, when people were paid an honest pay for an honest day's work. Neither Sheen nor Lohan get that. Betty surely does, because she lived during those times and worked hard to get where she is.


"...Especially a grown woman." Which is also what LL is suppose to be. LOL But she is selfish and unprofessional.


Goooooo Betty, she's spot on. There are stars out there who do appreciate what they have, we just don't hear about them so much. Not exciting too much I guess. But they shine compared to Sheen and Lindsay. These two would be the wrecks they are no matter what their choice of careers. They are basically wrecks as humans and just happen to be in a very forgiving industry. Sad.


@ Michelle Bender: I don't know whether these people need shame as much as self-respect. They obviously have none or they wouldn't be acting this way, in public or private!


What happened to shame?
Shame USED to keep people including celebrities from just acting anyway they wanted to.
Shame kept young actors & actresses in the closet or honest up front. There was no speculation out loud in public because people were held to a higher standard. RKO & MGM would have never hired her or any of these actors because of there public antics...they would have been ASHAMED to have them on contract.
We should really give Lindsay or Lindsey a pass. She was raised by the two worst persons God blew breathe into! She would have been better off in Foster Care.


I guess I feel sorry for Lindsay. I don't know if she will ever realize how wrong she is. If she respects Betty White and is a fan maybe it should have made her think about what she said and say if Betty White sees this maybe something IS wrong with me. No, as usual it's all about her again. SHe is never wrong, it is everyone else's fault. Charlie Sheen is the same way and it's the true sign of an addict. Until they can come clean and say "hey, you know what, I messed up..I made some major mistakes, I am sorry and I want to get better", then they are doomed. I have seen the stars who were in deep and they are better now and they all admitted that they have or had a problem. Lohan and Sheen wont' admit it, they are in denial. Lindsay Lohan has/had the world at her feet, she had a life that most people dream about. She could have used her talents and lived her life graciously etc. yet she let the devil take control and it led her down a horrile path.


Betty White is right. Poor little Lindsay can't seem to take even the smallest honest criticsm. Boy must this girl have an ego!


No thanks on the address ms.banger aka Betty. I'm sure there's plenty of exciting men you can hit on over there in jolly old England.


Peter is just trolling, best remedy is to ignore

Avatar're really risking any credibility hiding behind some British food phrase you've adapted as your username. Let me ask this what is so profound in what advice she gave? Anyone reading something off of a newstand could have come to the same opinion. My beef is that this same person throws jabs at people like Don Rickles did ... just to be funny? And why cannot I rightly believe she's just an old liniment sniffing blowhard? So buzz off banger!
