The world mourned the loss of two silver screen greats over the weekend, as both Peter O’Toole and Joan Fontaine passed away.

Academy Award winner Fontaine died on Sunday night in her California home at age 96, according to “USA Today.

The iconic actress scored an Academy Award nomination for her turn as the star of Alfred Hitchcock’s “Rebecca,” going on to win an Oscar for her part in “Suspicion.

Fontaine is survived by her older sister, fellow actress Olivia de Havilland, with whom she had a famous feud.

O’Toole, best known for his title role in 1962’s “Lawrence of Arabia,” died at the age of 81 Saturday in a hospital in London.

Yahoo reports that the actor, who garnered eight Oscar nominations throughout his decades-long career had suffered a “long bout of illness,” which was in part responsible for his retirement shortly before his 80th birthday in 2012.

O’Toole leaves behind three children, including his daughter, actress Kate O’Toole.
