Betty White always said that late husband Allen Ludden was the love of her life.

Unfortunately, Ludden passed away in 1981 and White never remarried.

That didn’t mean that she never joked about her crushes.

She jokingly referred to actor Robert Redford as “The One.”

After she passed away on New Year’s Day, Redford reflected on her loss.

“Betty lived life devoted to her craft and her love of animals,” he said.

“She made us all laugh, including me,” he continued.

“I had a crush on her too,” he revealed.

It seems their mutual crush was never to be!
