Obituary: Actress Darlene Cates, 69, noted for her role in the film What's Eating Gilbert Grape, died Sunday in Texas:

Cates won the role after appearing on the "Sally Jessy Raphael" show in January 1992 to discuss her depression and struggles as a 500-pound-plus person in an episode titled "Too Heavy To Leave the House." Peter Hedges, whose book "What's Eating Gilbert Grape" was adapted for the film, had seen the episode and brought the video of Cates to the movie's director, Lasse Hallstrom. To Hedges, Cates was exactly how he had imagined the homebound mother character in his book.
