His death has today sent shockwaves through Hollywood where a few high profile celebrities have paied their respects to the actor through Twitter.

Many are citing one of Nielsen's most famous catch phrases from his 1980 film "Airplane!": "I am serious, and don't call me Shirley."

Comedian Russell Brand paid tribute, writing, "RIP. Leslie Nielsen. Shirley, he will be missed."
