Jill Clayburgh, star of women-centric 1970s films like An Unmarried Woman, Starting Over and It's My Turn, died at her Connecticut home on Friday from chronic leukemia, a disease she quietly battled for 21 years. She was just 66-years-old at the time of her passing. Her husband, playwright David Rabe, confirmed her death to The New York Times.
Clayburgh and Rabe's daughter Lily took an emergency leave from the Broadway show in which she is about to open. She is set to star in Shakespeare's A Merchant of Venice alongside Al Pacino.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to Clayburgh's family. She was such a terrific actress.
