Half a million fans joined a Facebook page urging SNL to make White a host. The campaign has been gaining followers and attention, just as the 88-year-old actress has become more ubiquitous. She recently starred with Sandra Bullock and Ryan Reynolds in "The Proposal," was given a lifetime achievement award at the Screen Actors Guild Awards and starred in a Super Bowl commercial for Snickers that has ranked as one of the game's most popular.
White told People that she was baffled by all the support.
"I don't know why or how," she told People at Elton John's annual Oscars viewing party on Sunday night. "But it's been wonderful."
White didn't offer any details about the SNL appearance.
