Actress Jill Clayburgh dies at 66

Jill Clayburgh, a two-time Academy Award nominee for best actress, who was best known for her realistic, emotionally searing portrayals in the late-1970s films "An Unmarried Woman" and "Starting Over," died Nov. 5 at her home in Lakeville, Conn. She was 66 and had battled leukemia for 21 years.
