Gloria Stuart, best known for playing the older version of Kate Winslet's character in Titanic, passed away on Sunday at the age of 100.

Her daughter, writer Sylvia Thompson, told the Washington Post that Stuart was diagnosed with lung cancer several years ago and had also previously battled breast cancer.

Over the past few days, both Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet have released statements remembering Stuart.

Winslet shared, "I am so saddened to hear of the loss of this remarkable woman. I feel blessed to have met her, known her, and to have acted alongside her. Anyone who spent time in her presence will know what an extraordinary shining light she truly was. She will be deeply missed."

DiCaprio echoed the sentiment, saying "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 alongside her. She will be missed."
