God Bless her.. Nobody could do crazy like she could...and that voice..
Tyrrell's last tweet(with the below picture accompanying it), was sent on May 25, 2011 and is indicative of her sense of humor and panache, "Will somebody do a re-make of f****** "Freaks" before I f****** croak!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"
Gloriously one-of-a-kind.. Susan Tyrrell, who was Oscar-nominated for her supporting actress role in John Huston's 1972 "Fat City," died Saturday in Austin, Texas. The cult actress, who often played whores and grotesques, was 67. She contracted essential thrombocytosis, a rare blood disease, in 2000. As a result, both of her legs were amputated. Despite the disability, she continued working..
She told the Los Angeles Weekly in 2000, "The last thing my mother said to me was, 'SuSu, your life is a celebration of everything that is cheap and tawdry.' I've always liked that, and I've always tried to live up to it."
