Legendary child actress Shirley Temple Black passed away on Monday night, Feb. 10. She was 85.
The actress, perhaps best known for her 1930s films Little Princess, Bright Eyes and Heidi, died in her Woodside, Calif. home, her nephew Richard Black told The Hollywood Reporter. She had recently begun hospice care.
Temple is survived by her three children, her daughter Linda from her marriage to John Agar, and her son Charles and daughter Lori from her marriage to Charles Black.
Temple, who served as a foreign ambassador and diplomat for four U.S. presidents, won a Screen Actors Guild's Life Achievement Award in 2006. "When I was 3 years old, I was delighted to be told that I was an actress, even though I didn't know what an actress was," she said during her acceptance speech. "I have one piece of advice for those of you who want to receive the Lifetime Achievement Award: Start early!"
