Well, she's still got it.

A reporter from Parade asked White in 2017 about her secret to longevity, when the icon offered the most Betty White-answer possible. Vodka and hot dogs, were her response, "probably in that order!"

Where were these sage words when 2016's #SaveBettyWhite campaign frightened us all?

On a more serious note, she advises to "enjoy life."

"Accentuate the positive, not the negative. It sounds so trite, but a lot of people will pick out something to complain about, rather than say, 'Hey, that was great!' It's not hard to find great stuff if you look," the star maintained. Amen.

On Friday, her "Proposal" co-stars Ryan Reynolds and Sandra Bullock came together to send their well-wishes to the Hollywood treasure. You can see their adorable messages in the video above! 

Happy birthday, Betty!
