Actress Betty White is in favor of allowing gay and lesbian couples to marry, saying people should mind their own business.

White – also a comedienne, author and former game show host – is best know for her television roles. She played gossipy Sue Ann Nivens on The Mary Tyler Moore Show and gullible Rose Nylund on The Golden Girls.

In a cover story for this week's Parade magazine, the 88-year-old White talks about the issue of gay marriage.

“I don't care who anybody sleeps with,” she says. “If a couple has been together all that time – and there are gay relationships that are more solid than some heterosexual ones – I think it's fine if they want to get married.”

“I don't know how people can get so anti-something. Mind your own business, take care of your affairs, and don't worry about other people so much.”

But White isn't about to get gay married, adding that she's “enjoyed the opposite sex a lot. Always have. Always will.”
