Actress Eileen Brennan died on July 28 at the age of 80.
Brennan's Hollywood career was almost cut short in 1982, when a car accident changed her life. She was hit by an oncoming car and suffered leg, face and eye injuries. Those injuries brought about dependencies on antidepressants and anti-anxiety medication, as well as an addiction to prescription pain pills.
After attempting a return to acting in 1984 in "Off The Rack," Brennan checked herself into the Betty Ford Rehab Center for six weeks.
She is survived by her sons Sam and Patrick, her daughter-in-law Jessica and her grandchildren Liam and Maggie.
CORRECTION: An earlier version of this story incorrectly reported that Eileen Brennan was nominated for an Oscar for her performance in "The Last Picture Show." She was nominated for a BAFTA Award.
