    Agent: Shirley Temple Dead at 85

    [​IMG]

    Former childhood movie star Shirley Temple has died, her agent confirmed in a statement to ABC News.
    She was 85.

    Temple -- known in private life as Shirley Temple Black -- died Monday night at her home near San Francisco, surrounded by her family and caregivers, according to the statement.
    Temple is best known for her doe-eyed turn in numerous 1930s films, including "Bright Eyes" and "Curly Top," roles that allowed her to showcase a special brand of energy and optimism for a country enduring the Great Depression. She started dancing at age 2 and acting at 3.

    By the time she was 5, she was stealing the show. In 1934, she was awarded a special miniature Oscar for her outstanding contribution to the silver screen.
    She led the box office for three straight years. A drink was named after her. Children copied her curls. A doll in her likeness became a collector's item.
    Eventually, as she aged, her Hollywood popularity declined.

    At 17, she married John Agar, but the marriage didn't last.

    Her second marriage, to San Francisco businessman Charles Black, endured -- and allowed her to enter the world of politics. She served as a U.S. ambassador to Ghana and Czechoslovakia.
    Her survivors include three children, a granddaughter and two great-granddaughters.
