Ben Stiller's mother and actress Anne Meara has died at the age of 85.
It has been confirmed that Anne passed away on Saturday May 23, but details on her death have yet to be released.
Although better known for her role as Miranda's mother-in-law in Sex and The City, Anne has earned four Emmy Award nominations for her roles in television series such as Archie Bunker’s Place and Homicide.
Anne also took home a Writer’s Guild Award for writing the 1983 TV movie The Other Woman.
"Anne's memory lives on in the hearts of daughter Amy, son Ben, her grandchildren, her extended family and friends, and the millions she entertained as an actress, writer and comedienne,” a statement released by the family reads.
Thank you so much for all the kind words about Anne. All of us in our family feel so lucky to have had her in our lives.— Ben Stiller (@RedHourBen) May 25, 2015
Anne was married to fellow comedian Jerry Stiller since 1954.
The couple starred together as Stiller and Meara on The Ed Sullivan Show five decades ago and took home several awards for the TV and radio commercials they recorded together.
“[Jerry was Anne’s] husband and partner in life,” the family press release reads.
"The two were married for 61 years and worked together almost as long.”
Ben is currently filiming Zoolander 2 in Rome but is said to have flown home just in time to be with his family.
Tributes have already been flowing in on Twitter from actors looking enough to work with Anne over the years.
