In her heyday, Shirley Temple was the queen of the 20th Century Fox lot. Studio chairman Jim Gianopulos hailed her screen legacy as well as her work off camera.

“Today as the world mourns the loss of ‘America’s Little Darling,’ we remember not only one of the most prolific child stars to ever grace our screens, but also a woman whose achievements reached far beyond her Hollywood career. Shirley Temple Black remains an integral part of Twentieth Century Fox’s heritage and the bronze sculpture of her that flanks the Shirley Temple Black Child Development Center on the Fox Lot serves as reminder of her enduring legacy and her ability to unite and entertain both young and old. She was an extraordinary talent and on behalf of all of us at Fox, I wish to extend our deepest sympathies to her family,” Gianopulos said.

Hollywood also took to social media to express condolences.
