Betty wants today’s young actresses to stop being so wild and crazy!

Times are changing, that’s for sure. Hollywood used to be considered glamorous and professional — but that’s not always the case with today’s young actresses? Lindsay Lohan has spent time in jail and rehab for her drug addictions, while stars like Miley Cyrus and Taylor Momsen run around town in scantily clad outfits. Luckily, actress Betty White, has a message for this new generation: “Be a professional and appreciate the business you’re in!”

“Everybody all over the world would love to be in your business,” Betty shared with HollywoodLife.com exclusively. “So don’t abuse it!”

Betty, who is renowned in the industry for all of her incredible work throughout the years, celebrated her 89th birthday at NYC restaurant Le Cirque on Jan. 18.

She feels quite blessed to have achieved so much thus far and attributes her success to something her parents told her as a child. “I had some good advice from my mother and father who were the best [parents] in the world,” she said to us. “I was the only child and they said if I ever abused the privilege, they’d throw me out!”

Well it seems like that advice worked out quite well for Betty, and now hopefully Miley, Lindsay, and Taylor can learn a thing or two from this amazing woman!
