Shirley Temple - Tributes Pour In For Shirley Temple

Tributes are pouring in from the stars of stage and screen following the death of veteran actress/singer Shirley Temple on Monday (10Feb14).

The former child star, who enjoyed a stellar film career before moving into politics in the 1960s, passed away aged 85 at her home in Woodside, California from natural causes.

Although she had been out of the public eye for many years, her death has sent the world of showbiz into mourning and dozens of stars have expressed their sorrow on microblogging website Twitter.com.

Referencing Temple's most famous song, actress Whoopi Goldberg writes, "The Good Ship Lollypop (sic) has sailed today with Shirley Temple aboard a true 1 of a kind. If you don't know her.. google or YouTube her. R.I.P."

Smashing Pumpkins rocker Billy Corgan writes, "Thank you Shirley Temple, R.I.P.", Mia Farrow adds, "Little Shirley Temple raised the spirits of a nation during the Great Depression. Rip" and fellow actress Olivia Munn writes, "Rest in peace Shirley Temple. The world is so much brighter because you were in it..."

Actor James Franco tweets, "We love you, Shirley temple. Love to all the child stars, grown before their times", Rose MCGowan writes, "I loved her so much. I've seen every movie of hers, I own her scrapbooks & have 3 dolls. She was a giant talent", and Academy Award-winning actress Marlee Matlin adds, "Shirley Temple brightened spirits when the world was dark. I'll never forget her kind words to me at the Oscars. A star forever. Rip."
