Talent manager J.J. Harris died Friday at her Los Angeles home. She was 62.

A spokeswoman for Harris’ company, One Talent Management, said Harris had died of natural causes and that funeral arrangements were pending.

Her clients included Charlize Theron, Kevin Costner, Kate Bosworth (pictured above with Harris) and Dakota and Elle Fanning.

She worked at the William Morris Agency before joining United Talent Agency as a partner shortly after its formation in 1991. Harris remained at UTA until 2003, when she formed a management company with Heather Reynolds.

Harris was the CEO of One Talent Entertainment. She and Theron parted ways amicably last year; Harris had repped her dating back to the middle 1990s at UTA.

    This is quite a shock especially at such a young age. Although I hadn’t seen her for a while I always considered her a very dear friend. My heart goes out to her family.
