Comedy has lost a major powerhouse!
The Associated Press reports that actress Anne Meara died yesterday- and if you don’t exactly know who she is, you do, though; she was the wife of actor Jerry Stiller and the mother of Ben Stiller, but also a celebrated comic with 89 acting credits and one Golden Globe nomination to her name. She had reoccuring roles on Archie Bunker’s Place, ALF, and more recently on Sex and the City as Steve Brady’s mother Mary.
The Stiller family released a statement on Sunday, calling Jerry Anne’s “husband and partner in life. The two were married for 61 years and worked together almost as long.”
Sad! Kind thoughts go out to the Stillers…
