Grab your heart of the ocean rosary (I know you have one) and put on the instrumental version of “My Heart Will Go On“, because Oscar-nominated actress Gloria Stuart has sailed off to the first class cabin in the sky at the golden age of 100.
The Washington Post brings the sad news that Gloria passed away at her home in West L.A. yesterday. Gloria’s daughter Sylvia Thompson said that her mother was diagnosed with lung cancer three years ago.
Gloria is best known for making us all scream “THAT’S RENT MONEY!!!” when she threw the diamond necklace into the ocean in Titanic, but she has starred in over 40 movies since the 1930s including my favorite title Gold Diggers of 1935.
Rest in peace, Gloria…… We all can forgive you now for turning that multi-million dollar necklace into a wee wee pad for fishes.
