Hollywood lost a legend in actress Betty White today, who peacefully passed away at age 99. TMZ was the first to report the news, confirming she died at her home on Friday, one month shy of her 100th birthday on January 17, 2022. People followed with direct confirmation from her agent and friend, Jeff Witjas.

"Even though Betty was about to be 100, I thought she would live forever," Jeff said in a statement. "I will miss her terribly and so will the animal world that she loved so much. I don't think Betty ever feared passing because she always wanted to be with her most beloved husband Allen Ludden. She believed she would be with him again.

"Betty White recently covered People to talk about her upcoming milestone birthday and called herself "so lucky," saying being "born a cockeyed optimist" was the key to her positive attitude. "I got it from my mom, and that never changed," she said. "I always find the positive."

White was famously the subject of death hoaxes for years, with Twitter being tricked by false stories almost every year since 2014. Unfortunately, the same cannot be said of today's news.

The American powerhouse spoke about life in her 90s before her death. “Best thing about being in your 90s is you're spoiled rotten. Everybody spoils you like mad and they treat you with such respect because you’re old. Little do they know, you haven’t changed. You haven’t changed in [the brain]. You’re just 90 every place else," she told People in 2013. "Now that I’m 91, as opposed to being 90, I’m much wiser. I’m much more aware and I’m much sexier."
