Hollywood has lost another legend today.

Celeste Holm, who won an Academy Award for her supporting role in 1947's Gentleman's Agreement, has passed away at the age of 95.

According to reports, the actress was hospitalized last week, but her husband, opera singer Frank Basile, was able to bring her back to Manhattan to live out her last few hours in the comfort of her home.

So incredibly sad.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to her children, grandchildren, friends, and loved ones during this time.

May she R.I.P.

    It's sad that her own children battled over her fortune, for several years. Her finances dwindled precariously due to legal fees, lawyers fees and medical expenses. She should have had more comfortable years, but her own sons' greed was incredible.

    RIP Celeste. I will remember you always as Karen Richards-Margo Channing's friend in All About Eve.

    95 years is more than anybody would ever hope for. Her skin is the colour of death in that picture but her eyes still sparkle with life.

    the golden age of Hollywood is quickly fading away

    Great, great actress, whether on film, Broadway, or TV. I'm glad she got to spend her final day at home with her loved ones.

    This is proof that you steal all your stories; Holm had way too much class to do things that would make a low-life scumbag like you notice her. If someone isn't a talentless whore (Kardashian) or isn't paying you to post about them (Kat Graham) or a failure in which you have an interest (Sliimy, IM5), then you have no clue. Holm did a fabulous job with every role she had, and glad she had such a long, full life. It's a shame her greedy children tried to ruin her golden years; I hope that, in the end, she died happy and at peace with all.

    My favorite film role of she did was All About Eve! I own that movie and read on Saturday how she was sick on MSN. Then next day she was dead. RIP Celeste.
    Her son is a computer wiz created the term hypertext. Seems like she had a wonderful life.

    You actually make it seem really easy along with your presentation however I find this matter to be actually something which I think I would by no means understand. It sort of feels too complicated and extremely large for me. I'm having a look ahead to your next publish, I'll attempt to get the cling of it!
