Anne Hathaway paid tribute to Garry Marshall in a moving Facebook post which she shared her grief over the passing of "The Princess Diaries" director.

Hathaway, who starred in the 2001 Disney film alongside Julie Andrews, shared a picture of her, Andrews and Marshall writing that "Garry was goodness itself."

"I met him when I was a child who thought she was a grown-up; he treated me with grace and patience and respect and always, always love," Hathaway described.

Hathaway recalled Marshall telling her "you never know if a movie is going to be a hit or not. The only thing you can control is the memories you make when shooting it. So, let’s make some good memories."

"That advice changed my life even more than the film did," Hathaway wrote.

TMZ originally reported that Marshall passed away Tuesday due to complications from pneumonia.

Marshall, 81, was well known for producing TV shows including "Happy Days," "Mork & Mindy" and "Laverne and Shirley."

Aside from "The Princess Diaries" his directing credits include "Pretty Woman" and "Runaway Bride."
