Betty White To Join Madame Tussauds Wax MuseumBy: Tobias Roth - October 8, 2013
Betty White, the popular television actress, has been chosen to join Madame Tussauds Wax Museum. The museum is located in Washington D.C. and will soon be the home to a wax sculpture of the television icon. The museum is well-known and has featured many other notable celebrities over the years, in addition to the many U.S. presidents. It is always an attraction for people to see, and the new wax figure featuring White will be unveiled on Wednesday.
Betty White has enjoyed an incredibly successful career in television including her role as Rose on The Golden Girls. Since then, she has recently appeared in Hot In Cleveland, which gained her recognition from many critics and several awards shows. She also hosted a situation comedy show called Betty White’s Off Their Rockers, which premiered in 2012. She is also known for her role on The Mary Tyler Moore Show, years before she appeared in The Golden Girls.
In addition to being a television and pop culture icon, Betty White has also gained attention for her work with animals and being known to the public as an animal lover. Lisa LaFontaine, CEO of the Washington Humane Society, will unveil the figure to pay homage to the star’s passion for animals, according to NBC News. The Human Society will also have its mobile adoption center at the museum Tuesday for visitors to adopt animals.
The veteran actress turned 91 earlier this year and does not show any sign of slowing down, as she continues her role on Hot In Cleveland, and continues to make public appearances. She also played a voice in The Lorax in 2012. In the past few years, she also appeared on several talk shows and even as the host of Saturday Night Live. She is the last surviving member of the cast of The Golden Girls, and continues to gain popularity with younger audiences as well, due to her outrageously funny antics.
