Betty White made sure that her appearance during the Saturday Night Live 40th Anniversary Special was one to remember when she started making out with hottie Bradley Cooper.
The 93-year-old Golden Girls star appeared as a guest on The Californians sketch along with Taylor Swift, who played a hair-eating cousin, and Scandal’s Kerry Washington who played the doctor with the hilarious paternity-test results. Sketch regulars Kristin Wiig and Fred Armisen reprised their characters during their short comeback on the SNL Stage. The Hangover star Bradley Cooper then emerged out of the backstage wearing a blonde wig and a pair of short shorts. Cooper played Craig the pool boy in the 9-minute sketch that went overboard when White locked lips with Cooper.

The crowd went wild as the two shared a passionate kiss that lasted long until the sketch ended. The internet was on fire as #SNL40 became a trending topic. Fans were insanely jealous over the fact that White made out with one of the sexiest men alive and some are saying how they want to be Betty White when they turn 90.

I hope I’m 1/2 as cool as Betty White at 93…most likely I’ll be wearing diapers and shouting obscenities at random people though.

I don’t know if I’m more jealous of Bradley Cooper for getting to make out w/ Betty White or of Betty for getting to make out w/ Bradley!!
