Betty White was truly an actress who adored her fans. The acclaimed star, who died on December 31st, just weeks before her 100th birthday, recently recorded a video message for her legion of admirers.

ET recently spoke to producer Steve Boettcher who was working on the upcoming special Betty White: A feast, and he talked about White’s appreciation for those who valued her.

“On December 20th, she shot a short little video for us … it was kind of a tribute to the fans who would be with her at the event,” said Boettcher. “It’s kind of a greeting to her fans for doing it 10 days before she died.”

“She looked gorgeous, she loved being ‘glammed up’, as she calls it, in her hair, her makeup was just eye-catching and beautiful,” said Boettcher of the video that White took. “She smiled and wanted to sincerely thank her fans from the bottom of her heart for all the support over the years.”

According to Boettcher – who worked with White to celebrate her life and career – the beloved actress “was only living her best life, and that’s what we want for Betty White”.

“I think she was just happy and the eternal optimist,” he shared. “You will see in the movie out January 17th that she has this incredible view of life and that view of life and that it just rains through her entire career and personal life. [She was] only the eternal optimist. “

While the documentary will obviously shift focus a bit from its original incarnation as a birthday party into a tribute to White’s incomparable life and career, Boettcher said it will show fans a side of White that is real and personal.

“I think the funny thing about the movie is that it shows Betty in quiet moments. Betty at home, Betty with some friends, Betty with animals, and he may show another side of Betty in the spotlight, but still the Betty we all know and love, “he said.” You know what Betty really is is how real she is and I think you can’t fake that and in a business that may be challenging at times, she is above everything. I think she’s real to her fans, real “with cast, and I think that served her really well.”

“I think Betty had this feeling, that feeling that movie stars are sometimes aloof on the big screen, but with Betty and her career it happened on the small screen, on the TV screen, and she felt invited into people’s homes. ” every week. Whether it’s the Mary Tyler Moore Show or password or Hot in Cleveland or golden girls“She was invited into people’s living rooms,” thought Boettcher. So I think Betty really accepted that and appreciated this relationship. “
