Celebrities took to Twitter Sunday to express their grief after learning that actress and comedian Anne Meara died Saturday.
The 85-year-old performer and mother of Ben Stiller touched many:
Stiller and Meara have been a wonderful presence in comedy my whole life. Now Anne Meara is gone, and I salute her.

Was very lucky to work with the hysterically funny Anne Meara on the film, Another Harvest Moon - she had the BEST stories #RIPAnneMeara

Anne Meara was real and too quick for the room. Ahead of her time and essential to comedy.
