cloris August 4, 2010 (Pen Men at Work): Cloris Leachman surprised the audience when she lashed out at co-star Betty White saying that she was sick of her. It was all said in jest, however. Leachman spoke at the gathering of the Televisions Critics Association in Los Angeles. She was there for promoting her series ‘Raising Hope’. Cloris Leachman said that she had never liked White when asked about her reaction to Betty’s new found popularity. Her words had the audience laughing with some of them gasping at her retorts.

She proved to be a pro at handling a press conference and asked each reporter to stand up and give his or her name before questioning her. She was not averse to answering questions on Greg Garcia, the creator of ‘Raising Hope’ either. She also managed to satisfy the reporters with her answers on co-star Martha Plimpton. Her attitude seemed to be a bit grumpy but had an air of mock fun about it. It was in fact, perfectly in tune with the character that she will be playing in ‘Raising Hope’. She is playing a white trash granny in the series.

She clarified her stand on Betty White after the conference by stating that it was all a joke and she actually loves the star. She went on to admit that it feels a little strange to be teamed up with a woman in the same age bracket when you are in your eighties. Leachman also informed her audience that she would be working together with Betty White in the upcoming film, ‘You Again’.

When informed of Leachman’s comment that she hoped to win another Emmy for the show, Garcia told the reporter, “Now you can see why we work extra long hours.” Cloris Leachman made the comment when she was asked whether such prizes still mattered to her. She has so far won the highest number of Emmys than any other woman in the same profession.
