Betty White: 'I'm a lot like Golden Girls' Rose'

By
Betty White has said that she is quite similar to her former Golden Girls character Rose Nylund.

White played the naïve Rose for 180 episodes on The Golden Girls from 1985 to 1992, a role which won her an American Comedy Award and seven Emmy nominations.

Speaking to Parade, the actress said she shares Rose's sunny outlook on life.

"I like to think I'm most like Rose Nylund [than any of my other characters]," White told the publication. "I'm a cock-eyed optimist and I expect life to have a happy ending."

White went on to suggest that she is very lucky to have worked steadily in Hollywood for more than 70 years.

"I'm the luckiest old broad; I had the privilege of working with the Mary Tyler Moore group, then the Golden Girls group, and now the wonderful ladies of Hot in Cleveland," she said.

Hot Cleveland premieres its new season on Wednesday, November 28 at 10/9c on TV Land. Watch a trailer for the new season below (US only):
