If Jay-Z thinks you’re cool, you know you’ve still got it. Congrats to Betty White, who received this year’s Emmy for Outstanding Guest Actress in a Comedy Series yesterday for her guest hosting of the Mother’s Day 2010 episode of Saturday Night Live. In honor of White proving that you don’t have to be twentysomething to prove you still have it — and in fact, you can be born in the ’20s and still have it — we did a Biographical Fact Search for all actors in Biography Resource Center born in 1922. (White was born January 17, 1922.)
The results were impressive: 152 individuals, including Lillian Adams, Rory Calhoun, Denholm Elliott, Redd Foxx, Ava Gardner, Judy Garland, Jo Van Fleet, Kim Hunter, Richard Kiley, Jack Klugman, Christopher Lee, Patrick Macnee, Dick Martin, Darren McGavin, Juanita Moore, Donna Reed, Jason Robards, Esther Rolle, Dan Rowan, Paul Scofield, Gale Storm, and Paul Winchell. And, of course, Betty White and her delicious muffins.
