Oh no. I heard her mentioned the other day on something and was thinking to put her on my list next year. Too late.

Another one playing much older characters as she looked in her 70s in the 1980s. Didn’t she play Cher’s mum in Moonstruck?

The Tales of the City sequel she did a few years ago was a nice cap off to her career.

I know her best from Steel Magnolias but I know she's been in far more besides. A beautiful woman. RIP.

I re-watched Moonstruck recently and as much as Cher is glorious, Olympia is truly the heart and soul of the movie.

Very sad :( But what a career and Moonstruck/Steel Magnolias alone is quite a legacy

Is there anything more aspirational than standing at a wedding with Dolly Parton, judging everyone around you
