Everyone loves Betty White, but not Cloris Leachman.
"I'm so sick of Betty White," Leachman said at the Television Critics Association's fall previews on Tuesday. "Never liked her."
The 84-year-old actress, who plays a wild, chest-baring granny in Fox's new fall comedy Raising Hope, commandeered the show's session, forcing co-star Garret Dillahunt to switch seats mid-Q&A and reporters to stand up and say their names when asking her questions.
"As can see it's pretty easy. You don't have to do much," Leachman's co-star, Martha Plimpton, said with a chuckle about working with the Oscar and nine-time Emmy winner. "It's a sheer delight." Raising Hope revolves around 23-year-old Jimmy (Lucas Neff), who unexpectedly becomes a dad after a one-night stand with a wanted felon in the first episode. Plimpton plays Jimmy's mom Virginia.
Leachman didn't hold back on the profanity either, asking Plimpton if she had f------ creator and executive producer Greg Garcia (My Name is Earl) in the middle of the panel after Plimpton paid him a compliment. Plimpton admonished her: That's "make-up trailer talk."
Leachman's co-stars should be advised not to get too attached to their out-spoken castmate, who told shared with reporters the exact locations of her Oscar and Emmy awards in her house.
"You bet your life," Leachman said of her hopes to receive a 20th Emmy nomination for the series. "If I don't get an Emmy for this show, I'm leaving."
Raising Hope premieres on Tuesday, Sept. 21 at 9/8c on Fox.
