Mary returned the praise when her best friend received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in January of 2019. “You’ve been a total inspiration to me,” said Mary. “We meet people in the industry and they’re not nice. I’ve never had a friend whom I could call while on set and say, ‘How do I do this as an actress’ and when I needed help? You helped me. And in my mind, that’s rare, because people don’t share and you’re a sharer. So thank you for being a giver and a sharer.”
