Simon Pegg, Leah Remini, Bill Gates + More in Celebrity Tweets of the Day
Today (May 7) celebrities mourned the loss of Hollywood effects legend Ray Harryhausen, celebrated teachers, and obsessed over a murder trial.
First, stars weighed in on Harryhausen, who passed away today at the age of 92. He was responsible for mastering the art of stop motion animation and bringing monsters to life in films like ‘One Million Years B.C.’ and ‘Jason and the Argonauts.’
Sad to hear Ray Harryhausen has died. What a great career. (Was awed to see him a few times at my Legend Films office).

I loved every single frame of Ray Harryhausen’s work. He was the man who made me believe in monsters. Glad to have met him. A true legend.

Ray Harryhausen an inspiration and a legend, even before he left us. His influence cannot be measured and has shaped cinema as we know it.

If I believed in God, I’d want him to be like Ray Harryhausen — nudging us one frame at a time toward the sublime & fantastic.

Meanwhile, it was National Teacher Day, and few people but Bill Gates seemed to recognize it.

And finally, Leah Remini spent the day not concerned with either, but rather with the Jodi Arias murder trial. To each their own.
Is it me?! How long does it take find a murderer guilty? Gun/Gas cans/liar/sociopath.I have things to do! Glued to HLN #JodiArias
