Barbra Streisand has paid tribute to her ''wise and loving friend'' Lauren Bacall.

The 89-year-old actress passed away yesterday (12.08.14) after suffering a massive stroke and her friend, who played her daughter in 'The Mirror Has Two Faces', has led the messages of remembrance for the Hollywood legend.

She said in a statement to Entertainment Weekly: ''What a terrible loss for us all. First Robin [Williams] who was a genius and now Lauren. It was my privilege to have known her, to have acted with her, and to have directed her. And, most of all, to have had her as a wise and loving friend.

''She was an original. Even with all those great films we can visit again and again, she will be missed.''

And Barbra wasn't the only former co-star to pay tribute to the icon.

Her 'Misery' co-star James Caan said: ''She was a great, uplifting lady who was full of talent and fun. I feel fortunate to have had the opportunity to work with her. I will miss her dearly.''

Lauren voiced a character in 'Family Guy' earlier this year and show creator Seth Macfarlane feels ''honoured and privileged'' that it was her last role.

He said: ''Lauren Bacall's life is a life to be celebrated. I am told her last performance was on 'Family Guy'. For that we are forever honoured and privileged. Thank you, Lauren, for teaching us all how to whistle.''

Jenny McCarthy shared a picture of herself with the actress in their 1990 movie 'Diamonds' as she paid tribute on Twitter.

She wrote: ''I had the amazing opportunity to work with Lauren Bacall in the movie Diamonds. She was one of a kind. #legend #RIP.(sic)''

Meanwhile, burlesque dancer Dita Von Teese spoke of her awe when she came face-to-face with Lauren.

She tweeted: ''Sad to hear we've lost one of the last legends of the Golden Age of Hollywood. I met Lauren Bacall once... a serious ''pinch me!'' moment!''

kris jenner was another famous face to pay tribute, using one of her favourite quotes from the legendary star.

She wrote: ''''Imagination is the highest kite one can fly.'' Another legend lost today. Rest in Peace Lauren Bacall.(sic)''
