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.”
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?
