Betty White

BLASTS Lohan, Sheen

4/8/2011 3:33 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Betty White just UNLOADED on Lindsay Lohan and Charlie Sheen -- claiming she "cannot stand" their over-the-top lifestyles ... and blasting them for letting their careers spiral out of control.

Betty went off on the stars yesterday ... telling the Daily Mail,  “I cannot stand the people who get wonderful starts in show business and who abuse it. Lindsay Lohan and Charlie Sheen for example."

But Betty didn’t stop there -- claiming, “They party too much, don’t learn their lines, are unprofessional, and they grumble about everything. I think they are terribly ungrateful.”

Back in her day, Betty adds, "We considered ourselves lucky ... and were always on our best behavior in public." Times have changed.

Well, I missed that post but I have to say that's a fun coincidence - and so, so true.

Btw, one of the few celebrity connections that I had/have is with someone who used to work on set with Betty. Several years ago he said that Betty knew how to party and was no prude in her personal life - but was always professional at work and in public.

I don't think that's too much to ask from anyone - especially those making so much money.

I agree with @themare and you also have a good point. TV coverage of the Vietnam war also made a huge difference in how the general public perceived war. I believe that Betty is one of the older stars who has expressed sympathy for the younger stars re paps and so on and acknowledged that today's world is different for them. Still, not everyone responds to media coverage the same way and it is possible to be more discrete than some people choose to be - emphasis on choice. Plus, she is referring to how Lindsay and Sheen have behaved poorly on set as well as in public towards those who gave them employment.

ol Betty is senile and has a short memory. Has she forgotten about Marilyn Monroe, Elizabeth Taylor, Joan Crawford, Judy Garland to name a few. Go back to your home for the elderly you old crusty trout.

another thing betty boo, we know about your many failed marriages and when you posed naked, yuck!

gloday1
dayglo idiod, you mention how awful it is that betty had failed marriages and posed naked, yet somehow you think it's hunky-dory fine that Lindsay has many failed relationships, practically stalks her lesbian lover, Sam, and has posed naked.
Are you stupid or just willfully being an ********?

I agree with Betty! About time someone from Hollywood started speaking out about these spoiled brats. Watching and reading about these people is tiresome. It seems more the norm that this behavior is tolerated and encouraged. Sort of makes me sick.

DUIna's not going to like this. Time for her to squeeze out a couple more LOHANs to prepare for super-stardom.

The problem is that of all the Lohans, the only one with any talent was Lindsay. And Lindsay has been and continues to squander her talents.
NO ONE else in the Lohan family, not Dina, Michael, Michael Jr, Ali, or Cody, has an ounce of talent that is marketable like Lindsay HAD. And until Lindsay decides to change her tune (which we all know she isn't) she will continue to have HAD talent, and not HAS talent.

Betty White made a name for herself WITH HARD WORK AND TALENT, something today's celebrity degeneration knows very little of.

In all fairness, most of us (aside from the crash-site watchers at these live Sheen shows) are done with Charlie Sheen. He's like a high speed car chase and we're all waiting for his car to hit the wall. He really is the epitome of ungrateful. How many of us had the chance to make $2,000,000 a week and blew it? Does he have any consideration for the janitors, waitresses, housekeepers, etc. that work their tails off and barely make it? He has no education either, and his behavior is a slap in the face to most Mexican-Americans who have the same amount of education (none) and won't see $2 mil in their whole life time of hard work. He really is a class A jerk and deserves to be homeless and learn something. Now that's a show I'd watch! The porn star thing is just his attempt to be known as some kind of "outlaw". That's the only way he can justify his behavior. He knows, deep down, that he has blown it.

It's pretty obvious where Sheen is headed. Either oblivion or 5150, or death. Lindsay actually does have a future, IF she grows up, sobers up, and stops selling stories (in conjunction with her family) to the tabloids. LINDSAY, you will NEVER get sympathy in either the public eye or in the eyes of the studio heads playing "poor me" while simultaneously on trial for theft, AND having the stupidity to go to clubs in New York. I've known many people in recovery. The ONE thing they don't do is go to nightclubs. Lindsay, sober people don't fall down outsid nightclubs. Your probation violation is just waiting for you! What in the hell is wrong with you stupid?

If you have a future, it is only going to be successful if you grow the eff up and that is going to take a long time. Take some time off from selling stories to the tabloids, treat yourself with kindness, learn about compassion for yourself and others, and stay out of the papers. You maybe have a chance, but I doubt it.

Betty's is right. She's knows the value of working hard and how to truly entertain people. I always did like her.

I bet we won't see Charlie Sheen or Lindsay Lohan still working like Betty when they get in their 80's....if they're still alive.

I love it! Go Betty! I have so much respect for her. While she's known (and always will be known) for being a respectable and lovable great actress, Charlie Sheen and Lilo will be known by their failures and public downfalls. I'm glad she had the guts to actually say something about them, when most of Hollywood is always ass kissing and unwilling to take celebrities to task over their bad behavior.
