“Deadpool” and “Golden Girls” are two franchises that have grown surprisingly intertwined over the past few years. It all started in the late ’90s when Deadpool developed a massive crush on sarcastic “GG” star Bea Arthur. DP’s “Golden” fandom even made the leap to the ad campaign for the Merc’s movie; “Deadpool’s” official Twitter account celebrated “Golden Girls'” 30th anniversary back in September. And now, thanks to a video post by “Golden Girls” alum and TV legend Betty White, the appreciation is now mutual.
Ahead of the movie’s release on Friday, White posted a video review to Twitter, praising the “f—ing handsome” Ryan Reynolds and calling the film perfect for a family of “inbreds.” You can watch Betty White’s charming take on “Deadpool” below.
