Sandra Bullock was there for one of Betty White's golden moments, presenting her costar from The Proposal with the Screen Actors Guild Life Achievement Award in January.

Now, White's heart goes out to Bullock following claims that Bullock's husband Jesse James had an affair.

"We're all deeply, deeply saddened," White, 88, tells Entertainment Tonight in an interview airing Tuesday. "At such a high point in her life, it's tough, but I think the less other people have to say about it and let her work it out ... the better."

Still, White isn't shy about her affection for Bullock, 45, the newly crowned Oscar winner. "I love her with all my heart," White says. "[She's] one of the greatest human beings on the planet."

White, one of the four stars of the classic sitcom Golden Girls, is herself enjoying a high point in life. Having earned rave reviews for a recent Snickers commercial during the Super Bowl, she is looking forward to a busy month of May, when she will host Saturday Night Live and appear on the season finale of ABC's The Middle.
