So sad.

 

Strange as it may sound, I'll remember her most for doing to voice of Maggie Simpson that one time.

As iconic as she was, I have to say I'm surprised that she was only 79. I remember her presenting the Best Picture Oscar to Gladiator in 2001, and she had so much trouble with the card and the prompter and everything that I thought she was a very old woman at the time, but she was only 69!

 

I know she's had lots of health (mostly heart, I think?) problems over the years -- maybe that contributed to it. In any case, she was an icon and it's sad that she's passed.

She was great in bringing the HIV/Aids issue to the light of day.

And you gotta love the mutations that gave her violet eyes and two rows of upper eyelashes. Who says mutation is a bad thing?

RIP.... Elizabeth.
