She also earned an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress in 1971 and a BAFTA Award for her role as Ruth Popper in "The Last Picture Show."

Leachman is best known for playing the nosy, self-centered and manipulative landlady Phyllis Lindstrom on "Mary Tyler Moore" and later on the spin-off series "Phyllis."

Her additional film credits include the Mel Brooks films "Young Frankenstein," as the indelible character Frau Blucher, and "High Anxiety," as Nurse Diesel, as well as "American Cowslip," "Ponyo," "Inglorious Basterds," "New York, I Love You," "Expecting Mary" and the upcoming "The Oogieloves in the Big Balloon Adventure" and "The Fields." She became popular in recent years for her recurring role on the hit TV series "Malcolm in the Middle" and appearances on "The Comedy Central Roast of Bob Saget," "Love Takes Wings," "The Office," "Phineas and Ferb" and "HawthoRNe."

The 82-year-old Leachman competed on "Dancing with the Stars" in 2008 and served as Grand Marshal of the 2009 New Year's Tournament of Roses Parade and Rose Bowl Game in Pasadena, California. In March 2010, Leachman became a published author with the release of her best-selling memoir, "Cloris: My Autobiography."

She recently toured the U.S. with her one-woman show "Cloris!"
