Beloved Willy Wonka actor Gene Wilder died Aug. 29, and as the news spread on Monday, celebrities took to social media to remember the star, his iconic films and his contributions to comedy.
Wilder, who was 83, passed away from complications resulting from Alzheimer's disease, his family reported on Monday. His frequent collaborator and friend, Mel Brooks, remembered Wilder as "one of the truly great talents."
Russell Crowe shared fond memories of watching the Wilder-Brooks classic, Blazing Saddles. "I saw Blazing Saddles 7 times at the cinema with my school friends. George St. Cows outside. Gene Wilder you were a genius. Rest in Peace," he wrote.
