Better a few decades late than never!
Betty White is the latest star to get a waxen look-a-like courtesy of Madame Tussauds, and the Hollywood outpost of the museum unveiled White's wax figure on Monday.
"This is such a thrill, and such an honor, and don't think I take it lightly, and don't think I take it for granted," White said at the big reveal. "I am the luckiest old broad on two feet."
The only thing is, White continued, "why did they wait to do this until I was 90? A few decades ago would've been swell."
The 90-year-old "Hot in Cleveland" star told CNN that initially, she was supposed to get a wax figure along with the rest of the iconic "Golden Girls" cast, but Bea Arthur wasn't interested in a wax doppelganger.
"That's why I was thrilled that they asked to do it now," White explained.
And although it took some time, the end result is "beautiful," she continued. "They did a wonderful job."
