We were super sad last night to report the passing of one Hollywood's most beloved directors, producers and writers, Nora Ephron.
Nora had been battling cancer and passed at age 71. She brought us legendary classics like When Harry Met Sally and Sleepless In Seattle, and her impact on many was clearly evident throughout her career.
Among those celebrities who shared memories and tweeted their condolences for Nora are:

Writer and director Nora Ephron passed away Tuesday night in New York City.
The creative genius behind such iconic films as When Harry Met Sally and Sleepless In Seattle died at New York Presbyterian Hospital, where she was being treated for acute myeloid leukemia and pneumonia.
Born in New York and raised in Beverly Hills, Ephron was the eldest daughter of two Hollywood screenwriters; two of her sisters also are screenwriters, and a third is journalist and author.
Ephron herself started out as a journalist.
She was 71 years old.
Our thoughts to her family and friends. Sending them all very positive vibes!

Our hearts are breaking!
Nora Ephron, the genius screenwriter behind When Harry Met Sally, Sleepless in Seattle, and Julie & Julia is severely ill and not expected to survive throughout the night.
We hear cancer is the culprit behind the 71-year-old's condition, though it's unsure which kind.
Family members are telling close friends so they can prepare for the worst.
Our thoughts are with all of them. We hope they can find peace with the situation.

Well, she's already proven she does biopics well, so why not?
Reese Witherspoon has reportedly bought the rights to the life story of singer Peggy Lee, and has enlisted director Nora Ephron to write and direct a biopic that she will produce and star in!
The film will reportedly span the entirety of Lee's life, including her singing and acting career.
Inneresting! We're pretty confident that if anyone can do her life justice on screen, it's Reese Witherspoon, so we're curious to see how this one pans out!
What do U think?? Do U think Reese will make a good Peggy Lee??
