Academy to Honor 'Titanic' Star Gloria Stuart's Birthday With Film Tribute
"Titanic" star Gloria Stuart will celebrate her 100th birthday in style with a film tribute at the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences' Samuel Goldwyn Theater in Beverly Hills. The Oscar-nominated actress, who turns 100 on Sunday, July 4, will chat to film expert and friend Leonard Matlin as part of the evening, which will also feature film clips and memories from her long life.
The centennial celebration will take place on July 22. Stuart, who was born in 1910, made her movie debut in 1932's "Street of Women". She went on to star in many of moviemaker James Whale's pioneering horror movies like "The Old Dark House" and "The Invisible Man".
The actress joined the Screen Actors Guild in 1933, becoming member 843. She is the sole surviving board member from the 1930s. She's the oldest performer to have been nominated for an Academy Award - for playing old Rose in "Titanic".
