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.

We can't believe it's come to this!
After we reported the tragic resurrection of Overboard, another classic Goldie Hawn flick is being remade - Private Benjamin.
The 1980 comedy centered around a spoiled woman who joing the army after her husband dies during sex on their wedding night.
The new version, starring Anna Faris, will be set in modern times with the current wars as the backdrop. Sources say that no one wants to make fun of servicemen and women, but bring to light empowerment issues and build on the fish-out-of-water comedy.
Would U see this shiz?!
