Veteran stage and screen icon Elaine Stritch has died at the age of 89.

The actress passed away at her home in Birmingham, Michigan, on Thursday.

The star, known for her brash attitude and sharp tongue, began her career in the 1940s.

She enjoyed success in films like Woody Allen's "September" in 1987 and "Small Time Crooks" in 2000, and on TV in shows like "Studio One" and "Two's Company". In more recent years, she also appeared in "Law & Order", and she played Alec Baldwin's mother on hit sitcom "30 Rock".

However, she was perhaps best known for her stage roles, featuring in a hit 1952 revival of the musical "Pal Joey" and landing her first leading Broadway role in "Goldilocks" the following year.

Her other theatre credits include parts in "Sail Away", "Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?", Stephen Sondheim's 1970 musical "Company" and her one-woman show "Elaine Stritch at Liberty", for which she won a Tony Award in 2001.
