"Verna Bloom, who starred in Haskell Wexler's groundbreaking Medium Cool and played the boozing, philandering wife of the college dean in the John Landis comedy Animal House, has died. She was 80.

Bloom died Wednesday in Bar Harbor, Maine, of complications from dementia, family spokesman Mike Kaplan announced.

For Martin Scorsese, Bloom portrayed a sculptor in the comedy After Hours (1985) and then Mary in The Last Temptation of Christ (1988). Earlier, she was the lover of Clint Eastwood's The Stranger in High Plains Drifter (1973) before reteaming with the actor-director in Honkytonk Man (1982).

Survivors include her husband Jay Cocks, a former film critic and two-time Oscar-nominated screenwriter for his work on Scorsese's The Age of Innocence (1993) and Gangs of New York (2002). They married in 1972." (More)
