After Maureen O’Hara’s death Saturday at the age of 95, celebrities took to Twitter to honor the screen legend.
O’Hara, who starred in classics like Miracle on 34th Street and The Parent Trap, died in her sleep at her home in Idaho this weekend. The Irish actress was known as the “Queen of Technicolor,” thanks to her signature red hair, and she appeared in Oscar-winning films like How Green Was My Valley and made five films opposite John Wayne.
“She passed peacefully surrounded by her loving family as they celebrated her life listening to music from her favorite movie, The Quiet Man,” her family said in a statement.
A slew of celebrities, including Jessica Chastain, who paid tribute from “one tough redhead broad to another,” and Mara Wilson, who appeared in the 1994 remake of Miracle on 34th Street, honored O’Hara on Twitter.

Rest in peace, Maureen O'Hara. You were an inspiration to those of us who worked on the '94 Miracle, and to so many others.— Mara Wilson (@MaraWritesStuff) October 24, 2015
