Someone told Dolly Parton to "be funny" and she was!
Lily Tomlin honored Dolly at the 50th Anniversary of the CMA Awards in November and Dolly was able to do the same for her friend, by presenting her with the Screen Actors Guild Life Achievement Award and some of the funniest "lines" of the night.
“Lily’s getting an award I’ve spent my life trying to avoid … sag,”
“People have wanted another 9 to 5, but I think we’d have to call it 95,”
“I almost didn’t get in. They kept holding me backstage. They wanted to see my ID – or maybe it was double D’s. I wanted to get that off my chest.”
God bless sweet Dolly. How is she 71? If only we could all be as gorgeous, talented, down to earth and hilarious as she is and may we all be fortunate enough to have a friendship so beautiful after 37 years.
