Betty White Was Excited To Film Her Final Shout Out To Fans
White has blessed our TV screens with versatile performances that made the legendary actress one of Hollywood’s honorary members for decades.
Before “The Golden Girls” star’s heartbreaking death at 99, the producer Steve Boettcher had been working on “Betty White: A Celebration,” an upcoming special in honor of the icon’s achievements.
During this period, the filmmaker revealed to the news outlet that the late TV personality had filmed a short tribute to fans just 10 days before she passed away. Boettcher said:
“On Dec. 20, she did a short little video for us… it was kind of a tribute to her fans that were going to be with her at the event.”
The producer added that White was excited to shoot the short clip as the “Hot in Cleveland” star got “glammed up” with her stylish hair and makeup that made her look “striking and beautiful.”
Boettcher stated that the sitcom queen’s smile could light up a room as she genuinely wanted to thank fans for their unyielding love and support over the years.
The five-time Emmy Award winner’s documentary was initially meant to be the actress’s 100th birthday celebration, but her unexpected demise changed the goal.
The upcoming special shall be released on January 17, 2022, to tribute White’s remarkable life and career. Boettcher revealed that the icon had been “living her best life” until the final moment regarding the biopic.
According to him, the film would show fans the side of White that was “genuine and personal,” from her quiet moments at home to hanging out with friends and spending quality time with animals.
Aside from getting to watch the beloved actress’s final moments, fans would also get to enjoy her relationship with stars such as Ryan Reynolds, Tina Fey, Robert Redford, Morgan Freeman, and more.
The 4th Mayor Of Hollywood Died Of Natural Causes
Following White’s death, The Blast reported that speculations had begun circulating the media about the cause of the Hollywood icon’s demise.
Rumors claimed that a COVID-19 booster shot may have influenced “The Golden Palace” star’s death. However, the late actress’s agent and close friend Jeff Witjas refuted these allegations.
The Hollywood sensation died of natural causes that had nothing to do with the COVID-19 booster shot. In his words:
“People are saying her death was related to getting a booster shot three days earlier, but that is not true. She died of natural causes.”
Witjas also implored people to stop politicizing the comedian’s death as that was not the type of life she lived. The comedian had a fruitful career and should be remembered for her vast achievements.
