Actor Albert Brooks has paid tribute to his screenwriting partner Monica Johnson, who died on Monday (01Nov10).
The star lost her battle with cancer and passed away in Los Angeles, aged 54.
She teamed up with Brooks to pen several hit movies in the 1970s and 1980s, including Modern Romance, Real Life, and Lost In America.
Johnson - the sister of comedy writer Jerry Belson, who died of cancer in 2006 - also worked on programmes like The Mary Tyler Moore Show and Laverne and Shirley.
Brooks says, "Monica Johnson was an extraordinary person. Funny, smart, and so much fun to work with. The world has lost a great sense of humour."
Johnson is survived by her only daughter, Heidi Johnson, and her seventh husband Charles Lohr.
