In an ongoing joke, her former co-star Ryan Reynolds said that he has a crush on Betty! She responded, “I’ve heard Ryan can’t get over his thing for me. But Robert Redford is The One.” She also joked that she was waiting for Robert’s call. Betty once said that she had never even met Robert but had always admired him from afar.

Betty was previously married three times. Her first two marriages were brief. The one that stuck was to game show host Allen Ludden. They met when she appeared as a celebrity guest on Password, which Allen hosted. They got married in 1963 and remained together until his death in 1981. She never remarried and seemingly never dated anyone else, despite her crush.
