Actress Passed Away Friday At The Age Of 66Academy Award-nominated actress Jill Clayburgh passed away on Friday, she was 66. The actress died after a 21-year battle with chronic lymphocytic leukemia, a disease that she fought privately, never publicly announcing it. Known for playing strong-willed, independent women -- perhaps best evinced in Paul Mazursky's 1978 dramedy, "An Unmarried Woman" for which she earned a Best Actress Oscar nomination and won the Cannes Best Actress prize -- Clayburgh's last role was as Jake Gyllenhaal's mother in Ed Zwick's upcoming dramedy, "Love And Other Drugs."
