Marcia Strassman, the "Honey" of Honey, I Shrunk the Kids, has reportedly died following a long battle with breast cancer. The actress's longtime friend, director Bob Weide, first announced the news, tweeting, "So sad that a sweet friend, kind person & wonderful actress Marcia Strassman lost her brave battle with cancer today." Cher, too, memorialized Strassman in a well-intentioned if bafflingly-muddled tweet, saying, "[front-facing baby chick emoji] [hatching chick emoji] Wanted U2 No,a Funny,Talented Friend Died.Not 4U 2feel sorry 4me,but she died alone, &Energy from U is powerful &Sends [sparkling heart emoji] 'Marsha Strassman'."
Beyond her work with Rick Moranis's diabolical machines, the actress will be fondly remembered for series roles in Welcome Back, Kotter, M*A*S*H, Aaahh!!! Real Monsters, Third Watch, and more. She was 66.
