This is so sad!!!
Hollywood icon Eileen Brennan has died!
According to her publicist, the 80-year-old actress succumbed to bladder cancer Sunday in her Burbank home!
Eileen was nominated for an Oscar for her work alongside Goldie Hawn in 1980's Private Benjamin, but her most memorable roles might've been with Paul Newman in The Sting or as the sweet-natured waitress in The Last Picture Show.
She is survived by her sons Sam and Patrick, her daughter-in-law Jessica, and her grandchildren Liam and Maggie.
Our thoughts go out to Eileen's friends and family — we will all miss her terribly.
