Stars to react to the passing Mary Tyler Moore

"When I saw Mary Richards driving that Mustang to that TV station in Minneapolis, I thought 'wow, I can have a career too, '" Couric shared with Moore during the interview.

And Star Trek star George Takei said: 'She turned the world on with her smile'. Moore said they used the term "cupping under" to refer to their concerns that the seat of her trousers had "a little too much definition".

Moore is survived by her husband of more than 30 years, Robert Levine.

She was married three times and welcomed one child, a son Richard, who died from an accidental gunshot in 1980.

It's true that Sonny Curtis's theme song for "The Mary Tyler Moore Show" emphasized that Mary Richards was the kind of person "Who can turn the world on with her smile?".

2017 is off to a devastating start with the death of TV icon Mary Tyler Moore. The series finale was the seventh most watched show during that week.

Now, we've arrived another moment of great social upheaval, though one that's frightening because of the possibility that the opportunities women fought so far to win are going to contract, rather than expand. She re-emerged on the small screen with Mary Tyler Moore, which aired on CBS from 1970 to 1977.

Marie would get so emotional at any bad news, Moore's family called longtime friend Dick Van Dyke, 91, who would later share any updates with the Love Boat star. She also won a Golden Globe for her role in 1965.

Gross noted that sponsors were anxious she would look "brazen".

In a day and age where American men and women needed those kind of strong female characters to look up to, Mary Tyler Moore gave them Mary Richards every Saturday night. She is being remembered today following her death at the age of 80.

She won a Tony for her performance in Whose Life is it Anyway? in 1980 and received an Oscar nod for Ordinary People. Like many sitcom episodes of the era, this was written "backwards", starting with an idea for a amusing climactic comedy scene: Mary is at a funeral where the circumstances of the death start to strike her as amusing, and she can't stop herself from laughing.

The role earned her two Emmys. "Mary and Rhoda" reunited her with Harper. The decision was made to end the show to avoid its legacy being tarnished. (CBS Photo Archive/CBS via Getty Images) Moore (sort of) reprised her TV reporter role with several cameos in "That '70s Show".
