Robert Pattinson may only have eyes for Betty White – but as far as the former “Golden Girl” is concerned, R-Pattz’s profession of love is only good for a laugh.

On Tuesday, the “Twilight Saga” star paid a visit to the ladies of “The View” where he revealed his crush on the veteran comedienne.

“I think Betty White is probably one of the sexiest women in America,” he said. “She’s vibrant; it’s sexy. I think the more age, the better.”

And on Tuesday night, Betty responded with an exclusive statement to Access Hollywood.

“Now THAT is a comedy line!” the 88-year-old actress said.

No word what Robert’s rumored on-screen/off-screen love interest Kristen Stewart – who joined Robert on the red carpet for his “Remember Me” premiere in New York City on Monday night – has to say about the admission.

However, Robert isn’t the only one who has Betty on the brain.

As previously reported on AccessHollywood.com, a huge Facebook fan campaign has been launched in effort to get Betty as the host of “Saturday Night Live” – something which also caught her off guard.

“All this came out of left field — all of a sudden, all this stuff has come in,” she told Access in February. “I don’t know any more than I did in the beginning, I’m just watching in awe.”
