Google is showering its search page with rose petals in honor of the late Betty White‘s 100th birthday, a reference to Rose, her beloved character from “The Golden Girls.”
On Jan. 17, White’s birthday, a Google search for her name will yield a special animated Easter egg with rose petals fluttering down the Search results page, along with the statement “Thank you for being a friend” – the title of “The Golden Girls” theme song. Google Search’s Easter egg will be available on January 17 at 12 a.m. GMT.
White, who died on December 31, 2021, had a more than 60-year career in television and film. She had almost 120 acting roles in addition to her role on “The Golden Girls” from 1985 to 1992. Sue-Ann Nivens on “The Mary Tyler Moore Show” in the 1970s and Elka Ostrovsky on “Hot in Cleveland” from 2010 to 2015 were among the TV Hall of Fame inductee’s roles. She also hosted “Saturday Night Live” in 2010 at the age of 88, and she has acted in films such as “The Proposal,” “You Again,” and “Bringing Down the House.”
White, a lifelong animal lover, was born in Oak Park, Illinois, before her family relocated to Los Angeles, where her acting career began at Beverly Hills High School. Over the course of her acting career, the TV legend received five Primetime Emmy Awards. “I really love to work, and the word ‘no’ did not exist,” White said in a 2020 interview with Variety.
