Gloria Stuart, the actress played the older version of Kate Winslet's character in "Titanic," has died at the age of 100.
Stuart passed away on Sunday at her Los Angeles home.
Her daughter, writer Sylvia Thompson, says Stuart was diagnosed with lung cancer several years ago and had also previously battled breast cancer.
The actress began working in Hollywood in the 1930s and starred in over 40 films during her career, including The Invisible Man, Here Comes the Navy and Poor Little Rich Girl.
After a nearly a decade away from the spotlight, she returned to the big screen in 1997, as the 101-year-old version of Kate Winslet's character Rose in James Cameron's Titanic.
She became the the oldest actress ever to be nominated for an Oscar for her supporting role in the film.
Stuart published her autobiography, "I Just Kept Hoping," in 1999, and received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in 2000.
She last appeared on the big screen in Wim Wenders' "Land of Plenty" in 2004.
Leonardo DiCaprio said in a statement:
"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."
