“Hot in Cleveland” star Betty White is hot.
So hot, in fact, that she was asked to guest star (and rap) alongside a group of beefed-up young men in the new music video “I’m Still Hot” for emerging British artist, Luciana.
“It’s a switch for me I will tell you, but it’s fun and they gave me these nice young men to work with that are built like little brick houses,” White happily told FOX411’s Pop Tarts during an exclusive set visit for the sexy shoot. “It’s challenging, but the boys are being so dear with me. It’s hard to hear the recordings, the music goes straight up into the ceiling so I can’t hear where my cues are.”
Never mind that, the famed “Golden Girl” sure was enjoying the view from the top as the model men busted their moves below her – just don’t expect the American icon to follow suit.
“I just like watching them,” White said, before giving us some “adlibbed” choreography of shaking her bosom. “Mostly for me, it’s a spectator sport.”
The video, sponsored by life settlement specialists The Lifeline Program, benefits the Los Angeles Zoo – and animal care has always been White’s lifelong passion.
“Music videos are not necessarily close to my heart, but animals always are. I’m always comfortable with them,” she continued. “My beloved husband, Allen Ludden, when we would have a photo shoot he would always put a dog in my lap. They would have to shoot me from the neck up, but I’d always be so relaxed.”
And although the veteran actress is turning 90 in January, she is far from leaving the Hollywood scene.
“Here I am still working and having a wonderful time,” she enthused. “Everyone keeps asking me when I am going to retire, but why should I retire? Why should I stop doing something I love to do?”
But is there still one man in the biz she’d like to get her hands on in front of the cameras?
“Robert Redford,” White told us.
And words of wisdom to those aspiring to have a career as long and successful as hers?
“Respect your business, know your lines and come on the set with a positive attitude,” White added. “Don’t look for the things you don’t like, look for the things you do like when you come onto the set.”
