The 10 Best Celebrity Comebacks

Betty White

After iconic roles in The Mary Tyler Moore Show and Golden Girls back in the day, Betty White settled for guest spots in popular television shows through the '90s and early 2000s. It wasn’t until 2009 that she experienced a real career resurgence with a role in the Sandra Bullock/Ryan Reynolds-starring The Proposal. What followed was an iconic superbowl ad for Snickers in 2010, and after that, a massive fan-run Facebook campaign was created to get White to host Saturday Night Live. It worked after receiving over 500,000 members, and at 88-years-old, White hosted the show and garnered the series its highest ratings in years. It even earned her an Emmy. And now, she basically rules the world. Don’t act like you don’t agree.
