Shirley Temple Dies At Age 85

The iconic child star has passed away

Shirley Temple, the legendary Hollywood actress, has died near her home in San Francisco. She was 85 years old.

‘We salute her for a life of remarkable achievements as an actor, as a diplomat, and most importantly as our beloved mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, and adored wife of 55 years,’ her family said in a statement.

The American icon made her first film at just 4 years old and quickly gained fame as the curly-haired cutie of the 1930s. Known for films such as Bright Eyes, Heidi and The Little Princess, Temple retired from acting at age 21 and began a career in politics.
