Hollywood actress and 'Titanic' star Gloria Stuart dead at age 100

UPI News Service, 09/27/2010 

Hollywood actress Gloria Stuart, who earned an Oscar nomination for her portrayal of the elder version of Kate Winslet's character Rose in "Titanic," has died.

She was 100.

Her daughter, writer Sylvia Thompson, confirmed Stuart's death Monday to the Los Angeles Times.

Thompson said Stuart had been diagnosed with lung cancer five years ago.

The actress was 87 when she was nominated for the best supporting actress Oscar for her work in the epic shipboard romance "Titanic."

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences recognized her 100th birthday last July with a program featuring film clips and an onstage conversation between Stuart and her longtime friend, film historian Leonard Maltin.

Born July 4, 1910, in Santa Monica, Calif., Stuart is best known for her roles in "The Old Dark House," "The Invisible Man," "Gold Diggers of 1935," "Air Mail," "The Prisoner of Shark Island," "Poor Little Rich Girl" and "Rebecca of Sunnybrook Farm."

Stuart was the oldest performer to have been nominated for an Academy Award.
