Gloria Stuart DeadOscar-nominated actress Gloria Stuart passed away at the age of 100 on Sept. 26, The Washington Post reports.

Stuart, best known to audiences as the elder Rose in the Best Picture-winning 'Titanic,' was diagnosed with lung cancer several years ago, according to her daughter, Sylvia Thompson.

The actress began her career in the 1930s, starring in such films as 'The Invisible Man,' 'Roman Scandals' and 'The Prisoner of Shark Island.'

'Titanic' earned Gloria her first and only Oscar nomination. She lost the Best Supporting Actress prize to 'L.A. Confidential' star Kim Basinger at the 1998 ceremony.
