“Big Little Lies” stars Shailene Woodley and Reese Witherspoon also paid tribute.

“I am in shock. Complete and utter shock,” began Woodley, 30, via her Instagram Stories. “My f – – king god death is the worst. But I guess somehow I know you will turn it into a grand adventure . . . one for the books. One I can’t wait to read & to watch when my time comes.”
