It was an honor and blessing to work with Markie Post in 'Mary.' Only she could've played Cameron Diaz's mother believably and we were lucky to get her. Her performance was kind and loving and it made all the madness fun and acceptable. We love you, Markie Post. #RIPMarkiePost

I am devastated to hear of the passing of my friend Markie Post. She was a true talent. We did Hearts Afire together and to work with her and John was a gift. F&@k Cancer! #MarkiePost pic.twitter.com/b34yR5C5Th

Early yesterday morning, I got the news that Markie Post has passed away.
Out of respect for her family, I didn't want to say anything publicly until I saw it in the press.
But, I was shocked and devastated…https://t.co/jOOAAB7ztm
