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.”
