WASHINGTON, Oct. 9 (UPI) -- Betty White's wax figure is being temporarily moved from Madame Tussauds Hollywood to the attraction's Washington, D.C., location.

The sculpture of the 91-year-old "Hot in Cleveland" star, animal activist and philanthropist will be unveiled by Washington Humane Society Chief Executive Officer Lisa LaFontaine Wednesday, E! News said.

The statue will remain in Washington through December.

"The only thing that irks me is they waited until I was 90," the former "Golden Girls" actress joked when the sculpture was unveiled in Los Angeles in June 2012.

"A few decades ago would have been swell," she said. "I want to thank Madame Tussauds Hollywood for taking their sweet time in making my wax figure. Would it have killed them to do this 50 years ago before gravity took over?"

E! said White is the oldest living person to be honored by Madame Tussauds.
