Debbie Reynolds to receive Screen Actors Guild Life Achievement Award at January ceremony

LOS ANGELES, Calif. - The Screen Actors Guild is honouring Debbie Reynolds for her professional and humanitarian accomplishments.

The guild announced Monday that the 82-year-old entertainer will receive the 2014 SAG Life Achievement Award at the Screen Actors Guild Awards ceremony in January. The award is the union's highest accolade.

Reynolds is a star of stage and screen, with more than 50 films, two Broadway shows and two TV series to her credit. In 1955, she and other young stars established a charity called The Thalians to fight the stigma of mental illness. The Thalians has since raised more than $30 million.

Reynolds published her first memoir in 1987 and updated it with 2013's "Unsinkable: A Memoir."

The 21st annual SAG Awards will be presented Jan. 25 at Los Angeles' Shrine Exhibition Center.
