"Nothing prepares anyone for that sudden thing of being world famous, it was such a shock", she said. She was 69 years old.

"They took one of the best American actresses around, Amy Adams, and didn't give her anything to do!"

A spark of vivacious life in all of her films. Was married three times. She is survived by her daughter Maggie McGuane.
