Shelley Duvall, known for her roles in “The Shining” and “Popeye,” has passed away at the age of 75. Her partner, Dan Gilroy, confirmed that she died in her sleep due to complications from diabetes at her home in Blanco, Texas.

Despite her success in Hollywood, Duvall disappeared from the industry after her 2002 film, “Manna from Heaven.” In a candid interview with The New York Times, she expressed feeling hurt by the industry and the sudden turn of events in her career. Duvall emphasized the emotional toll of experiencing betrayal and mistreatment in an industry she once thrived in.

Her passing marks the end of an era for fans and colleagues who admired her talent and contributions to the entertainment world. Shelley Duvall’s legacy as a versatile and dedicated actress will continue to live on through her iconic performances on screen.
