(CNN) -- Shirley Temple Black, who rose to fame as the best-known Hollywood child star of the 1930s, died late Monday night, her publicist said.


She was 85.


Temple Black, who also enjoyed a career as a diplomat, died of natural causes at her Woodside, California, home. She was surrounded by family and caregivers, a statement from Cheryl Kagan said.


She began acting at age 3 and became a massive box-office draw before turning 10, commanding a then-unheard of salary of $50,000 per movie.


Her first film of notice was in 1932 when she played in "War Babies," part of the "Baby Burlesks" series of short films.
