Betty White's 97th Birthday Wish Is a Phone Call from Robert Redford...and, Same

Happy birthday, Betty! 

The Golden Girl herself turned 97 today, and while we don’t know exactly how she’ll be celebrating (probably with pizza, vodka and gummy bears, though), we do know what she’s wishing for when she blows out her 97 candles—and it’s pretty damn relatable.

All White wants is a phone call from Robert Redford, according to Us Weekly. The actress’s rep said that’s her one birthday wish.

Back in January 2018, White told Parade magazine her dream co-star would be the 82-year-old Redford. “That could be a very good idea,” she enthused.

C’mon, Sundance Kid. Make this legend’s birthday dreams come true.
