We seriously had to do a double take when we saw these shots of Betty White standing next to her new wax statue. A few minutes later and we’re still not totally sure which one is the living breathing White! The 90 year-old was honored by Madame Tussauds in Hollywood yesterday amid adoring fans reportedly chanting “You’re amazing!” Betty was definitely happy with the tribute, but jokingly wished it could have come sooner! “The only thing that irks me is they waited until I was 90,” she told reporters.
Even so, the legend is impressed with the uncanny likeness. “I think they did a wonderful job,” she told People. “I’m really amazed. I’m so impressed. I don’t know how they do this, but it’s a tremendous honor and I appreciate it.” In reverence to White’s love of pink, the crowd was reportedly given free hotdogs from Hollywood landmark Pink’s. That’s great, but we’re a little surprised they didn’t have more gold for the former Golden Girl! “I’m just the luckiest person on the face of the earth,” she gushed. “At 90, to have this kind of an honor is amazing.”
