The legend of Betty White just can’t stop growing.
“Young & Hungry” star Emily Osment recalled working with the iconic 99-year-old on the set of her former Freeform comedy show.
“She’s got a mouth on her. She’ll tell you,” Osment, 29, revealed to guest-host Jay Leno on the latest episode of “The Kelly Clarkson Show.” “If she was sitting here, she’d go, ‘Uh-huh.’ I don’t know what words I can say on this television show, so I’m going to hold back.”
The “Hannah Montana” star added that she was “fortunate” to have had the opportunity to act alongside White.
“Young & Hungry” aired on Freeform from 2014 until 2018 for five seasons. Five-time Emmy-winner White guest-starred on the sitcom for two episodes — in she played Osment’s neighbor — during the last season.
“She’s very funny. I was very fortunate to work with Betty. She did, I want to say, at least three episodes of ‘Young & Hungry.’ She did a couple. I mean, first of all, she’s beautiful. She’s just so stunning to look at. She’s got really beautiful skin. She shows up and then she’s, you know, razzing you,” Osment continued.
“It was amazing to be working on a show for that long. Our crew, you watch our crew that’s been around forever, they’ve worked with so many people,” the ex-Disney Channel actor explained. “And then [Betty] walks on stage and they all kind of just [go], ‘Hi, Ms. White. Very nice to meet you.’
“The amount of respect that she garners walking into a room was very interesting and well-deserved. And man, she’s got a mouth on her though. Doesn’t she?” she said.
Osment dished to Us Weekly back in 2017 about working with the “Golden Girls” alum, joking that the latter called her a “bitch.”
“She called me a bitch one time, which I loved,” Osment said. “She was like, ‘Honey, you’re what we like to call a bitch [because] you’ve got blonde hair and blue eyes.’ She has blonde hair and blue eyes as well, so she was like, ‘We like to call ourselves that.’”
Osment added: “I think I’m in a bitch club with Betty White! To hear such a sweet, sweet woman who’s in her 90s use the type of language she uses — she’s hysterical.”
