Feb. 17, 2010— -- One of the most enduring comedic actresses working in Hollywood today, it seems you can't go anywhere lately without running into Betty White. She's the star of a hit Snickers commercial that ran during the Super Bowl, costarred in the Sandra Bullock comedy "The Proposal" and recently received the lifetime achievement award from the Screen Actors Guild. And in case that wasn't enough, White has become the center of a growing grass-roots movement. A Facebook page called "Betty White to Host SNL (please?)!" has become devoted to the cause of getting White to host SNL. The group, which started small, has grown to over 375,000 fans.

In today's Conversation, ABC's Diane Sawyer caught up with White, to hear what she thinks about the online movement. They talk about how flattered White is, what sketches she might want to perform on the show, and how she really continues to be one of the hardest working people in show business.

Diane also talks with the creator of the Betty White Facebook page, David Mathews. How did he come up with the idea and has there been any progress in getting White on SNL? Diane also has a special message for him straight from White herself.

So if you are one of the hundreds of thousands of Betty White fans, then this is the Conversation for you!
