After more than 60 years in show business, Betty's big comeback began in 2009. Playing opposite Sandra Bullock and Ryan Reynolds in The Proposal, Betty stole the show as a brutally honest, rain-dancing granny. In February 2010, she had Super Bowl viewers falling out of their seats as a sassy touch football player in the breakout commercial of the game.
A new generation of fans was born, and a massive Facebook campaign was launched to land Betty a Saturday Night Live hosting gig. Now, Betty's going where few octogenarians have gone before—she'll be taking the stage at SNLStudio 8H on May 8, 2010.
Betty says she's having a blast. "The silly part about everything is that I didn't know I'd been away, and then all of a sudden that Snickers commercial kind of turned a lot of other things on," she says. "Now I'm busier than I've ever been."
