Joan Rivers jokes about Betty White playing her in biopic

By Greg Hernandez

HollywoodNews.com: The one and only Joan Rivers gave a very candid interview to ‘Rage Magazine’ this month which I found most enjoyable.

Thought I’d share some excerpts with you starting with Joan being asked who she’d like to see play her in a biopic: “I hope it’d be someone beautiful like Scarlett Johansson, but with my luck it’d be Betty White. That old bitch has come back from the dead and is taking it all! We’re all so upset!”

Joan is also asked how many plastic surgeries she’s had: “I have no idea because I didn’t do big ones. I always do teensy-weensy ones where you could literally walk out of the doctor’s office and be on stage the next day. Several times I’ve said, ‘can you just fix this?’ Can we just do a little something here or there?’ That’s the way people should do it. I mean, seriously, you polish your car every day. You vacuum your rug don’t you? So why not take care of your face if you can?”

She shares with readers her philosophy on life: “Laughter is my way of life and I handle things through humor. God gave us humor and that’s what life is about. Humor lifts our spirits and it pushes you forward. That’s how I do it and if other people don’t like it, then they can go kill themselves. I’m not interested!”

In response to that comment, Joan was asked about making jokes about the suicide of her husband Edgar Rosenberg. I was very interested in her answer because I lost one of my closest friends to suicide in 2009 and her words here actually are of great help.
