We’re still in the midst of rewatching all our favorite Nora Ephron films—Sleepless in Seattle, When Harry Met Sally, Julie & Julia, Silkwood—in honor of the writer and director’s life, which ended Tuesday at the age of 71 after her fight with cancer.
Celebrities are remembering Ephron, too, taking to Twitter to offer their condolences. The website Jezebel rounded up some of the many tweets. Here’s a sample:
Steve Martin: She was the one you wanted to read, to listen to, to be in the company of. Nora Ephron. Incomparable wit; delightful friend. Sadness reigns.
Jane Lynch: Nora, when I think of you I will remember perfectly scrambled eggs, Central Park and what I was wearing the moment I learned you were gone.
