Quite a large number of Hollywood stars have shown their pain in different ways and amongst them is Pauley Perrett. Perrett shared a throwback photo of herself and Marshall; they were both smiling in green.


‘Me and #PennyMarshal’, she captioned, ‘Love Love Love!’

The former NCIS star went on to Twitter to pay tribute to the deceased. She wrote; ‘I LOVED #PennyMarshall! The first time I met her, I spontaneously threw my hands around her, and she didn’t mind a bit. She was so awesome!

The Hollywood sweetheart died on Monday morning at her Hollywood Hills home due to complications from diabetes. Most people will remember Marshall from the hit ABC series, ‘Laverne and Shirley’; she played the memorable character, Laverne DeFazio.


She’d also gone on to become one of the most iconic women in the industry’s history. Some of her achievements include becoming the first woman to direct a film that grossed more than $100 million. She did that twice, and that made her the first woman to direct two films that grossed more than $100 million.


Marshall was also the second woman director to have her movie get an Oscar nomination for best picture. Rob Reiner, Marshall’s ex-husband of 8 years ago joined in the mourning; writing about his ex-wife on Twitter.

‘I love Penny,’ he wrote. ‘I grew up with her. She was born with a great gift. She was born with a funny bone and the instinct of how to use it. I was so lucky to have lived with her and her funny bone. I will miss her.


Geena Davis who starred in Marshall’s 1992 film, A League of Their Own said in a statement:

‘I’m terribly sad to hear the news about Penny passing. My heart goes out to Tracy Reiner and her family. Penny brought so much joy to so many and will be sorely missed. I will be forever grateful to her for letting me be a part of A League of Their Own.’

Tom Hanks, who starred in the late director’s hit movie, Big also joined the tribute train on Twitter.


‘Goodbye, Penny,’ he wrote, ‘Man, we did a lot! Wish we still could. Love you. Hanx.

It’s unfortunate that we have lost such an amazing legend. We can only hope she’s in a better place. Rest in perfect peace, Penny Marshall.
