Shelley Duvall death updates — The Shining actress dies at 75 as tributes pour in

Stanley Kubrick’s estate remembers actress

The official X account for Stanley Kubrick, who directed Shelley Duvall in The Shining, has shared a statement remembering the actress.

Rumors have swirled for years about Kubrick’s mistreatment of Shelley on the set of the iconic horror movie, but the director’s estate said that the claims were “exaggerated” in her the statement.

“Shelley Duvall, legendary character actor, and The Shining’s extraordinary Wendy Torrance has died at the age of 75,” Kubrick’s X account shared.

“Shelley’s career was varied and long.

“Despite being dogged with exaggerations of her treatment on set, Shelley was always vocal about her experience filming The Shining saying she ‘wouldn’t trade it for anything’ because ‘working with loveable Stanley was a fascinating learning experience.’

“Our thoughts are with Shelley’s friends and family.”

Director pays tribute

Director Scott Goldberg worked with Shelley Duvall on her last film in 2023 called The Forest Hills.

“Shelley leaves behind an amazing legacy and will be missed by so many people, myself included,” Goldberg told People.

“I am proud of her for overcoming adversity to act again and will always be forever grateful for her friendship and kindness.”
