Happy birthday, Betty White!
The legendary actress turned 96 on Wednesday and Ryan Reynolds knew just how to celebrate. The Deadpool star took to Instagram to repost a new promo image from the sequel, showing his character lounging alongside a framed photo of White.
"Happy Birthday to the one and only @bettymwhite ! Cheers to another year of ‘Tinis and Weenies! ??," Reynolds, who also co-starred with White in 2009's The Proposal, captioned the pic.
White, of course, is a big fan of Deadpool. The Golden Girls star appeared in a promo for the movie in 2016, in which she gave the movie "four Golden Girls," called it the "best picture of the year," and declared that Reynolds looks "so f**king handsome in his red leather suit."
ET caught up with White last year, when she revealed that the hardest job she has is "saying no to a gig" -- and opened up about the secret to her incredible career.
"You don't think of accomplishing things, you think of, of course, doing what you like and keep working and all of that but also, self-consciously, you work for the things you really believe in...animals, doing your homework, coming in prepared," she said. "Don't just wing it because it isn't always as good as you think it is."
"[I've been] blessed with good health, really good health," she admitted. "I love a cocktail, I love peanut butter and jelly, but I don't abuse. If you are blessed with this good health, you should take advantage of it."
