One of Betty White’s last roles in the movie might be too hard for fans to watch
(NEXSTAR) – Very few people can boast of the type of CV that Betty Blanche has built over his long and successful career.
The comedy icon, which passed away last week at 99, has worked in radio, theater, television and film, winning numerous awards and accolades for her performances in “The Mary Tyler Moore Show”, “The Golden Girls” and “Hot in Cleveland”, among others. White even won an Emmy (one in seven) for hosting a short-lived game show in 1983, a fact that likely softened the blow of losing a WWE Slammy Award to Hugh Jackman after their appearances on Les’s “Monday Night Raw”. decades later. For real.
White also had one of the most sought-after voices in Hollywood. During the last decades of her career, she has performed voiceovers for animated shows and films including “The Simpsons,” “The Wild Thorns” and even 2019’s “Toy Story 4” where she voiced a tiger shaped teething ring named “Bitey White.”
But in the wake of White’s passing, his latest voiceover role could strike particularly close to home.
White gave his last performance in an animated film – or any movie, according to IMDb – for the 2019 film “Trouble” (also known as “Dog Gone Trouble” on Netflix). His character, the wealthy Mrs. Sarah Vanderwhoozie, dies before uttering a single line of dialogue. Vanderwhoozie’s relatives later arrive at his property for his will to be read, in which case they are shown a pre-recorded video that Vanderwhoozie had prepared.
“Hello everyone. I have sad news. I bit the big one! Vanderwhoozie explains to his relatives, laughing.” I cashed my chips. I’m dead! “
The line, now a thought-provoking reminder of White’s passing, was played for laughs in the film. Knowing that this was her last movie role, however, adds an odd tone to the otherwise innocuous family film.
Of course, Betty White herself may have found all of this pretty silly. When she passed away last week, White’s agent and close friend Jeff Witjas joked that White might be having fun having spent a few weeks before her 100th birthday, just as her friends and his fans were preparing to celebrate it.
âI think that’s part of Betty’s sense of humor,â Witjas said, in a statement to Nation News. “She’s shooting something at all of us.”
