Bette Midler offended over granny role

New York: Singer-actress Bette Midler was offended when she was first offered the role of a grandmother in comedy show ‘Parental Guidance’. But she took it up later.

Midler, 67, known for acting in movie like ‘The Rose’, ‘Down and Out in Beverly Hills’ and ‘For The Boys’, took up the role because it was young at heart, reports

"I was totally offended. I didn`t think grandmother parts would come so soon," Midler said.

"I was up for playing a fun grandma... Grandparents are not quite the same as they used to be. People are fighting tooth and nail to stay fit," she added.
