Estelle Reiner, wife of comedian Carl Reiner and mother of actor/director Rob Reiner, has died at the age of 94.

Though her name may not be known to the public, her work is: she uttered one of the most famous lines in movie history.

In Rob's 1989 film When Harry Met Sally, Meg Ryan and Billy Crystal are sitting in a restaurant, talking about sex, when Meg shows how she faked her orgasms. Estelle is the woman sitting nearby who tells a waiter, "I'll have what she's having."

Estelle also appeared in her husband's film The Man With Two Brains, and enjoyed a successful career as a jazz singer.
