For some specifics, she is currently 91 years old. Like Sandra Bullock said in the page quote, Hollywood doesn't exactly value getting older, so even she's a little amazed that she is able to get frequent work in Hollywood. Not only that, but it seems like her biggest fanbase is young adults, a Periphery Demographic she's had since The Golden Girls back in the 80s. On top of all that, she still drives. And it doesn't hurt that her stint hosting Saturday Night Live is still considered to be one of the best episodes of the current era.
By the way, said episode of SNL can be considered an Awesome moment unto itself, and a Heartwarming Moment too, given that her appearance was preceded by a Facebook campaign that received over 500,000 Likes. From the very enthusiastic reaction of the audience to her first appearance on screen, to the Self-Deprecation in the monologue to the infamous death metal Golden Girls theme, Betty did not disappoint her new generation of fans.
