"The tears come up, but then they're part of the laughter," said Harper, 73. "Did you ever laugh till you cried? That's been happening a lot. It's been so full of life and joy and love. And fun!"

After conducting an acting workshop on Tuesday, Asner took the stage 45 minutes late at the Marquette Pavilion in Gary, Ind., to portray Franklin Delano Roosevelt in the sold-out show FDR.

Now one of Hollywood's longest-standing bonds is bringing comfort and support to Harper as she faces terminal brain cancer.

"I'm absolutely devastated by this news," says Moore, 76, who herself underwent surgery in 2011 for a benign tumor in the protective membrane around the brain – the same spot where Harper's malignant cancer cells are located.

Five Emmys, a Tony, a Grammy – and he's won the hearts of millions. Now, Dick Van Dyke is to receive his acting union's highest honor: the Screen Actors Guild's Life Achievement Award.

The tireless actor, 86, who's as comfortable with doing slapstick as he is with being suave, will be honored in January for his 60-year-plus career and his lifelong humanitarian accomplishments.

"Dick is the consummate entertainer – an enormously talented performer whose work has crossed nearly every major category of entertainment,” says SAG-AFTRA co-president Ken Howard.

"I met George Clooney in a very small elevator, and he came over and he put his arms around me," the actress, 75, told PEOPLE. "I think he said something like, 'I love you.' It was maybe two years ago. I am going to seek him out tonight."

Before she was a household name, Mary Tyler Moore was just another 18-year-old actress trying to make a name for herself in the industry – which meant finding a name that wasn't already registered with the Screen Actors Guild.

It was 1955 – long before she won the world over with her comedic chops and charm – not to mention her knack for wearing capri pants; before she made an impression as Dick Van Dyke's wife; before she made TV history as original single lady, Mary Richards.

Now more than 50 years after she made the leap from "Mary Moore" to "Mary Tyler Moore," the veteran entertainer, 75, was presented with the annual Life Achievement Award by her costar of 50 years ago, Van Dyke, at Sunday night's Screen Actors Guild Awards.
