image for Oldest Titanic Passenger Dies
Gloria at age 37

Gloria Stuart, the actress who was the oldest surviving passenger on the Titanic, has died at her Los Angeles home, aged exactly 100. She died in her sleep, and not, it must be stressed, by drowning.

Stuart looked older than her years, however, playing 101-year-old Rose Calvert in the movie Titanic when she, herself, was only 87.

The blonde actress appeared in several films during the 1930s, before retiring from acting in 1946, when she was just 36, but presumably looked about 50.

Stuart resumed acting in later years, and at 87 (looking 101) became the oldest actress ever to be nominated for an Oscar for her Titanic performance as Rose.

The native Californian also starred in The Invisible Man (1933) when she was 23, but appeared to be about 36 or 37, and two Shirley Temple movies which nobody has ever heard of, so we don't know how old she looked then.

It's not known when she started to look around 14 years older than her actual age, and now we'll never find out.
