Clips From Last Night: Betty White on her career, and making Piers want her

On Tuesday, "Piers Morgan Tonight" welcomed the incomparable Betty White for an engaging and entertaining live interview.

Joining Piers Morgan for an in-studio, face to face sit down, the legendary comedienne and actress revealed the greatest moment of her life:

"The hour and a half I spent in the cage with Koko the gorilla," shared White. "(She) took my wrist, and pulled me into her part of the cage and she sat down against the wall and made it obvious she wanted me to do that. I sat down opposite, and I had my hands on her fat tummy, and I was in there for about an hour and a half...It was maybe one of the most magic moments."

A 7-time Emmy Award winner, and star of such television hits as the "Golden Girls," White also explained why the host was forced to wait so long, before being granted this coveted meeting:

"I just wanted you to really want me," she dead-panned.

After earning a kiss on his hand from the legend, Morgan described it as "the most erotic thing that's ever happened to me."

Per usual, White had the perfect response: "You poor baby."

Watch the clips, and listen to the interviews, as the 90-year-old White shares her secret to a long-lasting career in Hollywood.
