London: Filmmaker James Cameron, along with his wife Suzie, paid a public tribute to late ‘Titanic’ star Gloria Stuart, who passed away last month at the age of 100.\
In a two-page advertisement in movie industry bible ‘Daily Variety’, Cameron and Suzie have praised the veteran actress.
"Gloria, we salute you. Every moment to you was a gift to be savoured and celebrated. The sparkle in your eye was as bright at your hundredth birthday party as it was when we first met you in 1996, and, we are sure, as it was when you were a siren of the silver screen in the `30s or a young girl running through the orange groves of Santa Monica in the `20s," a news daily quoted the pair as stating in the ad.
"Your storied life spanned 10 decades, during which you lived fully, with intelligence, compassion, your trademark barbed wit, your love of kits and children, bonsai trees and bawdy jokes.”
"Not content to be a gifted actor, you were a painter, a writer, a raconteur. Most of all you were a friend, deep and true.”
"Though we may take solace that you lived every minute of your hundred years with strength, joie de vivre and humour, we will mourn the loss of your company," they added.
