Gloria Stuart, the 1930s star, who achieved her greatest fame as the elder version of Kate Winslet’s Rose in Titanic, died Sunday. Her 100th birthday was marked this past Fourth of July.
Career-wise, Stuart hit her peek at 87. As Old Rose, Titanic’s signature survivor and storyteller, she rated an Oscar nomination, becoming the oldest acting nominee ever.
“I would say I don’t notice the difference between 100 and, say, 90,” a frisky-sounding Stuart said this past summer. “You’re still frail, feeble and full of you-know-what.”
Fans, as well as I, wish her family the best.
