After her death, Ryan Reynolds shared a touching tribute to his friend and fellow actor Betty White. He posted on Twitter and Instagram on December 31, “The world looks different now. She was great at defying expectation. She managed to grow very old and somehow, not old enough. We’ll miss you, Betty. Now you know the secret.” Alongside the caption, Reynolds shared a screengrab of a video of White from when she made a promo for Reynolds’ 2016 movie “Deadpool.”

The “secret” Reynolds mentions in his Instagram is most likely referring to something White wrote in one of her books. Having published a handful of books over the years, White shared everything from bits about her life in Hollywood to her love of animals. She wrote in one, per Cheatsheet, that she treated death like a secret after one of her pets died as a child, preparing her for when her grandma died not long after. She wrote of death, “I still want to make the most, and the best, of the time here, but I know there is one more adventure coming up, one big mystery to be solved.” She also reportedly said that people who died finally learned the “secret.”

With as close as Reynolds and White became over the years, it only makes sense that the young star learned of White’s thoughts on death, choosing to bring it up in his thoughtful farewell to his friend.
