Los Angeles: Troubled Hollywood starlet Lindsay Lohan had some harsh words coming to her from none other than tinseltown doyen Betty White.

The 89-year-old `Golden Girl` called Lohan "ungrateful" in a recent interview and the 25-year-old reacted by calling the unprovoked criticism "a bit strange", reported E! Online.

"I cannot stand the people who get wonderful starts in show business, and who abuse it. Lindsay Lohan and Charlie Sheen, for example, although there are plenty of others, too.

They are the most blessed people in the world and they don`t appreciate it," said White.

But Lohan said that the criticism came across as immature, especially from a "grown woman" like White.

"I`ve always been a fan of hers. It`s just a bit strange when people feel they must speak publicly about others. Especially a grown woman," said Lohan.

The `Mean Girls` star is currently readying for her trial in the case of a USD 2500 necklace which was allegedly stolen by her from a high-end store.
