Stars Mourn The Passing Of Hollywood Legend Lauren Bacall

Lauren Bacall's legacy in Hollywood spanned 70 years – her first film, To Have And Have Not, came out in 1944 – and during that time she became one of the most respected and revered actresses in cinema.

When the Oscar-winner passed away Tuesday, at the age of 89, the entertainment world, which was still reeling from the untimely death of Robin Williams, was shaken for the second time in two days. Fans of Bacall took to twitter to post messages and memories, and shared their love of the acclaimed actress with the world.

Barbara Streisand, who worked with Bacall in The Mirror Has Two Face, released a statement which said, "What a terrible loss for us all. First Robin, who was a genius, and now Lauren. It was my privilege to have known her, to have acted with her, and to have directed her. And, most of all, to have had her as a wise and loving friend. She was an original. Even with those great films we can visit again and again, she will be missed.
