Celebrities reflect on Lauren Bacall's legacy after her death at age 89

Celebrity colleagues and friends of Lauren Bacall shared their reactions to her death Tuesday at age 89:

— "Betty Bacall; not only was she part of my father's past but she was a magnificent part of my own life, and a huge influence on me. I'm so glad that in the last few years when I was living in New York City, I was able to live across the street from the Dakota and visit with her. Her spirit was undiminished and her beauty will live on forever. Now she's back with Bogie." — Angelica Huston, in a statement.

— "What a terrible loss for us all. First, Robin (Williams), who was a genius, and now Lauren. It was my privilege to have known her, to have acted with her, and to have directed her. And, most of all, to have had her as a wise and loving friend." — Barbra Streisand, in a statement.

— "She was a great, uplifting lady who was full of talent and fun. I feel fortunate to have had the opportunity to work with her. I will miss her dearly." — James Caan, in a statement.

— "She was a great friend to my family and especially to me. We all loved her, as she was one of a kind. I'll miss her very much." — Liza Minnelli, in a statement.

— "I had the amazing opportunity to work with Lauren Bacall in the movie 'Diamonds.' She was one of a kind." — Jenny McCarthy, on Twitter.

— "Lauren Bacall's life is a life to be celebrated. I am told her last performance was on 'Family Guy.' For that, we are forever honoured and privileged. Thank you, Lauren, for teaching us all how to whistle." — Seth MacFarlane, in a statement.
