Betty White Gives Marriage Advice to Kristen Bell

The young movie star shares fun words of wisdom she received from her 88-year-old You Again costar

Can we nominate Betty White to be America's grandma? We love her even more after hearing this story: when White's You Again costar Kristen Bell was seeking relationship advice, she turned to the older actress -- who didn't disappoint!

"When you hear him coming home, just go change your blouse or put on a little perfume," Bell says White told her, about keeping romance alive with her fiance -- comedian and Parenthood star Dax Shephard. White also told the 30-year-old actress to "constantly celebrate your partner like you did in month two." How sweet -- and wise!

Betty White, 88, knows romance: she was happily married to game-show host Allen Ludden from 1963 until his death from cancer in 1981. And Bell says she soaked up all the advice she could get from White on set: "I'm playing the role of sponge."

Who can blame her? The Hot in Cleveland star is the ultimate role model for a young woman: She's had a long and successful career, she's sweet-as-pie yet tough-as-nails, and she's at the top of her game while approaching 90! Sandra Bullock also admitted to soliciting White's advice (specifically, about being a stepmother) on the set of The Proposal. White once advised Lindsay Lohan (via Ok! Magazine) to "Shape up!" And check out these cougar-hunting tips that White gave to an admiring vlogger back in June:

We imagine Betty White now has a whole queue of women (and some men) behind her at any given moment, seeking her old-school wisdom on love and work. Three words for you, Betty: video advice blog. You could work from home, and the world surely benefit from your priceless advice (not to mention your incomparable comic delivery). If you do it, we promise to check it faithfully.
