Hollywood was quick to mourn and pay tribute to former Israeli president and prime minister and Nobel Peace Prize-winner Shimon Peres, who died on Tuesday at age 93.

Barbra Streisand shared a statement and a photo upon hearing the news of Peres' death. "President Shimon Peres was a voice of reason who also happened to have the sensibility of a poet … thoughtful and soft-spoken, but his words echoed loudly around the world. His mind was expansive and his heart was compassionate. He was a brilliant statesman, gifted with the ability to listen to others who did not share his views and still remained determined to find a path forward."

THR has collected together further reaction of the news.
