Oscar®-winner Patricia Neal passed away at the age of 84.
"It's been fabulous. I've really have had a good time," she said.
She burst onto the scene in the 1949 film The Fountainhead with Gary Cooper, and the two had a passionate affair
In 1961 Neal had a memorable role as a rich woman having an affair with a young writer in Breakfast at Tiffany's.
But it was her role as a housekeeper being pursued by Paul Newman in Hud that earned her the Best Actress Oscar® in 1963.
Two years later, tragedy struck. At age 39, Neal suffered the first of three strokes that would leave her paralyzed and unable to speak. With the help of her then-husband, writer Roald Dahl, she recovered.
Neal died of lung cancer on August 8th.
