Betty White Remembers Her First Emmys – in 1951!

Originally posted 08/23/2014 05:40PM

Betty White can't remember what she wore to her first Emmys, but she has a good excuse – it was 63 years ago!

"I haven't a clue," White tells PEOPLE of her first time at the ceremony in 1951. "I'm sorry. I should, but I don't have a clue."

But the Hot in Cleveland star – who is nominated this year for hosting Betty White's Off Their Rockers on Lifetime – has no trouble recalling her win for most outstanding female personality, a Los Angeles regional award she won in 1952.

Yes, it's the special day dedicated to the dessert that everyone seems to adore, including Britney Spears. And yet, perhaps the biggest cheesecake connoisseurs were our beloved '80s TV matriarchs, The Golden Girls.

Plain, fruit, chocolate – there was no type of cheesecake that went overlooked by these roomies.

Scarlett Johansson Raves About Cat Costar Ben Walker's Bare Butt

Originally posted 02/12/2013 10:15AM

Scarlett Johansson as Maggie the Cat is supposed to be the main sex symbol in the Broadway revival of Tennessee Williams's Cat on a Hot Tin Roof. But she's got her eye on costar Ben Walker – in particular, his butt.

"That is really one of the brighter points of my life," the actress, 28, tells Broadway.com.

Walker, 30, playing Maggie's husband Brick, spends a large chunk of the play wearing nothing but a towel, and sometimes (with his back to the crowd) not even that, giving Johansson – and the audience – an eyeful.

"I have asked Ben at times, when I was having a more difficult day, to just leave it out there for a couple more moments, just to brighten my day a little bit," she says. "I think it adds a little bit of hope in an otherwise dismal situation."

In front of fans screaming, "You're amazing," former Golden Girl Betty White unveiled her very own wax figure at Madame Tussauds Hollywood on Monday.

"The only thing that irks me is they waited until I was 90," the TV legend joked as the crowd chuckled. "A few decades ago would have been swell."
