Betty White Talks Cougars & Gay Marriage

Betty White jokingly shows off her inner cougar on the cover of this week’s Parade magazine.

Here’s what the beloved 88-year-old actress had to share:

On whether or not she’s a cougar: , “I’ve always liked older men. They’re just more attractive to me. Of course, at my age there aren’t that many left! I’ve enjoyed the opposite sex a lot. Always have. Always will.”

On getting her sense of humor from her parents: “They had delicious senses of humor. They would come back from a walk with a dog, saying, ‘Betty, he followed us home. Can we keep him?’ My parents had a cat named Toby who liked to sit on my crib. My mom always said that if Toby hadn’t approved of the baby, she’d have gone straight back to the hospital.”

On gay marriage: “I don’t care who anybody sleeps with. If a couple has been together all that time – and there are gay relationships that are more solid than some heterosexual ones – I think it’s fine if they want to get married. I don’t know how people can get so anti-something. Mind your own business, take care of your affairs, and don’t worry about other people so much.”

    Someone posted that being against gay marriage is a religous thing. They are right. We as Christians love gay people, but we can not agree with living out the gay lifestyle. Scriptures teach that homosexuality is sin. I stand on that. I must be allowed that opionion just as much as those who don’t agree.

    you have every right to share that belief but this country seperates church and state and have no right to tell them they are not allowed be together..christians also believe that people should not fornicate and live together don’t see anybody freakin about that do you?

    I was so surprised she thought that way about gay couples, it’s definitely not the norm for older ladies so more power to her!

    @s: You are quite right in what you said; after all, the bible also forbids the eating of pork and shellfish, but so many people who insist they are devout Christians love eating the stuff. Observant Jews and Muslims are better in that regard.

    About the sex thing: if you go to the right places you will discover that there are observant Christians who practice chastity and chasteness.
