It is said that every girl loves a man in uniform.
Unfortunately, this was not enough to Sergeant Ray Lewis, who is the newest member of the U.S. Marine Corps to ask a celebrity for their annual ball through YouTube.
The Golden Girls dvd star politely declined his invitation to the event in November, saying she had a prior engagement.
In a statement she said: 'As everyone knows, I love a man in uniform, but unfortunately I cannot accept as I will be taping an episode of Hot in Cleveland. Love, Betty White.'
At least she did not dent the action man's ego further by saying she was washing her hair.
