Leo Speaks Fondly Of Gloria Stuart

Gloria Stuart, who played the older version of Rose (also played by Kate Winslet), passed away Sunday at the age of 100.

Remembering his Titanic co-star, Leonardo DiCaprio said, “Gloria Stuart was a force both on and off screen. An amazingly sweet person, a fantastic actress, and someone who always fought for what she believed in.”

“She was one of the last great actresses from the Golden era of Hollywood. I was honored to have worked along side her. She will be missed,”

he added in a statement.

Beginning in the 1930s, Stuart starred in over 40 films, but semi-retired after A-list movie star status alluded her.
She was nominated for a Best Supporting Actress Oscar in 1998 for Titanic, becoming the oldest woman ever nominated for an Academy Award. She is survived by a daughter, four grandchildren and twelve great grandchildren.
