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?



At the young age of 89, Ms. Betty White did Not start working yesterday. Betty has a long resume from the entertainment industry, and is a card carrying member of game show history. Her star has risen brighter over the past few years, but you can Not deny that if anything she is a professional. For her to speak while doing an interview was absolutely a Normal trip, and some of us can easily believe that she spoke the truth while expressing her opinion. Of course in these days Lilo have Nothing better to do but try to keep out of jail and constantly defend herself from one charge after another. At her age Betty can afford to talk, and people will listen, but Lilo at 24 has proven to be all but a lost cause,and a lot of people are caring less about what Lindsay thinks she had to say anyway!!

Avatar ignored my question ... the topic was Betty White and her remarks ... not the last election. I believe she's talking and speaking foolishly as was my question ... is this wisdom from an old sage or jaws flapping in the wind?


The fact that Lindsay Lohan slights Betty White (a "grown woman"? I'll say) says about it all. She really is THAT self-absorbed and disrispectful. She obviously hasn't even started to think about what Betty might have meant. But if she's determined to throw it all away in the end of the day it's her own business, and her own loss. @Peter: what exactly surprises you about Betty's Sarah Palin comment? Did you follow the last election at all??:)


One foot in the grave and the other in her mouth. She called Sarah Palin " crazy bitch" .....makes one wonder...just a final gasp from an old bag flopping in the wind??


I'm not a fan of Lindsay Lohan and I do think she has destroyed her career, (and is destroying her life) but Betty White's quote does come off as a little self-righteous.


lol..Love Betty White, she tells it like it should be...Lohan thinks just because she has always liked Betty White that it s/b returned. Some people need to remember the saying "Respect is EARNED, it is not a GIVEN"


team betty all day . i don't think what betty said was wrong . she spoke the truth. what else could lindsay say? the truth hurts .


Really, lindsay? That's your response? She obviously missed that. She should be extremely humbled. Betty is grown and has every right to speak on how a professional actor should behave. She can talk about whoever she wants because she earned that respect. Lindsay however is not grown and has no place to talk about anyone and really needs to take her lumps and grow up!
