White is celebrating her 95th birthday Tuesday and personalities like Katie Couric, Wendy Williams, Reese Witherspoon are among those sending their well wishes for the Golden Girls actress.

"I keep thinking, 'Betty, you're 95 years old' and I don't feel it," White told Couric on her Yahoo! show. "I've been blessed with good health. I'm the luckiest broad on two feet."

And retirement is still out of the question for White, who is currently on the Disney comedy series Young and Hungry.

The show is at the CBS Studios facility in Los Angeles and even on her birthday, she was inside doing a table read for an upcoming episode.

According to the Guinness World Records, White has the longest TV career for an entertainer in history.

Her first TV appearance was back in 1939, when she became the queen of game shows and appeared on Password and The Match Game.

She played Sue Ann Nivens on The Mary Tyler Moore Show back in the 70's, but her fame reached its peak on The Golden Girls in the late 1980s.

In 2010, after a viral campaign, she hosted Saturday Night Live, becoming the oldest person ever to do so.
