Kate Winslet has been quick to respond to the sad news that the woman who shared the role of Titanic survivor Rose in the hit 1997 movie has died, calling 100-year-old actress Gloria Stuart "a remarkable woman".

Stuart passed away on Sunday (26Sep10) at her Los Angeles home after years of ill health and Winslet admits she's "saddened" by the news.

A statement from the British star reads, "I am so saddened to hear of the loss of this remarkable woman. I feel blessed to have met her, known her, and to have acted alongside her.

"Anyone who spent time in her presence will know what an extraordinary shining light she truly was. She will be deeply missed."
