Hollywood's most famous former child star Shirley Temple Black (sorry Jackie Coogan!) has been keeping a very low profile since serving as the United States Ambassador to Czechoslovakia under President George H. W. Bush.
Though her account is presently unverified, it appears to have been confirmed by several people in the know, including fellow silver screen legend Dick Van Dyke with whom Temple had a fairly surreal Twitter exchange.
With direct access to one of most iconic thespians to ever pose for celluloid during Hollywood's Golden Age, the thoughts of Twitter users immediately turned to a single question: What does Shirley Temple think of America's latest little sweetheart, Honey Boo Boo.
i have been asked what i think of "honey boo"", can someone tell me who that is~— Shirley Temple Black (@TempleShirleyJ) January 24, 2013
I can't believe I tweeted at Shirley Temple about Honey Boo Boo this morning. #Yolo— CocoRocha (@cocorocha) January 25, 2013
And I can't wait until Shirley Temple uses the hashtag #Yolo.
Should have known something was off when she claimed not to know who Honey Boo Boo is.
