1. Shirley Temple Black died Monday at age 85, her family confirmed.
Temple died of natural causes at her Woodside, Calif., home, the Associated Press reported.
“We salute her for a life of remarkable achievements as an actor, as a diplomat, and most importantly as our beloved mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, and adored wife for fifty-five years of the late and much missed Charles Alden Black,” a family statement said.
2. She was best known for starring as a child in the ’30s in films such as Stand Up, Bright Eyes, Cheer, and Curly Top.
She also had a drink named after her: ginger ale and grenadine, topped with a maraschino cherry.
4. Temple later became active in politics and held several diplomatic posts in Republican administrations, including ambassador to Czechoslovakia.
During a 1996 interview, she said she loved both politics and show business.
“It’s certainly two different career tracks,” she said. “Both completely different but both very rewarding, personally.”
