PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Hollywood is in mourning after the beloved Mary Tyler Moore died Wednesday at the age of 80.
Moore gained fame in the 1960s as the frazzled wife Laura Petrie on “The Dick Van Dyke Show.” In the 1970s, she created one of TV’s first career-woman sitcom heroines in “The Mary Tyler Moore Show.”
Several celebrities took to Twitter to pay tribute to Moore.
