Ryan Reynolds celebrated Betty White’s 99th birthday in the most entertaining way!

Reynolds posted clips to his Instagram story on Sunday of a hilarious throwback video from the set of 2009’s The Proposal. The clips show Reynolds and his costar Sandra Bullock preparing to give viewers a behind-the-scenes look at the film, but White shows up and Reynolds starts to get scared.

“What is Betty doing here? She’s got an issue with me,” Reynolds asks Bullock, who responds, “What is your problem with Betty? … She’s, like, the nicest person on the planet.”

Bullock then goes to give White a hug, who throws her arms around Bullock and exclaims, “Oh, there she is! How’s America’s sweetheart?”

“Hi Betty, how are you?” Reynolds nervously asks White when she comes over to sit next to him, to which she responds by smiling and mistaking his name, “Brian!”

“Get me a cup of coffee,” White tells him, to which Reynolds reminds her that he isn’t an assistant on set and they’ve been working together for “months now.”

“Damn, you’ve been a terrible assistant that whole time,” White responds, laughing. “When Betty White says she wants a cup of coffee, you f—ing get her a cup of coffee. You ab-crunching jackass.”

“We made this 12 years ago,” Reynolds wrote on his Instagram Story about the hilarious skit. “Betty turns 99 today. But she is 100 [percent] the funniest person on the planet.”
