Quinn Interviews Betty F***’n White

  by Quinn Marcus.

Most people’s first trips to Los Angeles include eating at In ‘n Out, seeing the Hollywood sign, and driving down Hollywood Boulevard. I did all that, but I also met Betty White. If that’s the coolest thing that ever happens to me, I’ll be okay with that. I dressed up for the occasion and so did she, in her red velour track suit. When I sat down with her, she grabbed my hand like we had known each other for years. She told my camera man to push our chairs closer because she felt we were too far away. Meeting Betty White was like seeing a relative after a long time apart, but feeling like no time had passed. She probably would say it felt like meeting a college student who was interviewing her, but I felt like we were related.
