Hollywood is remembering Kirstie Alley dopo la sua morte.
Di lunedi, True and Lillie Parker, the two children of the Saluti allume, announced that the Emmy-winning actress had died dal cancro. Lei era 71.
As news of her death circulated, many stars shared tributes for Alley to PEOPLE and on social media.
In una dichiarazione a PEOPLE, Alley’s Saluti co-protagonista Kelsey Grammer said of the news: “I always believed grief for a public figure is a private matter, but I will say I loved her.”
Compagno Saluti stella [object Window] added in a separate statement: “I was on a plane today and did something I rarely do. I watched an old episode of Saluti. It was the episode where Tom Berenger proposes to Kirstie, who keeps saying no, even though she desperately wants to say yes. Kirstie was truly brilliant in it. Her ability to play a woman on the verge of a nervous breakdown was both moving and hysterically funny. She made me laugh 30 years ago when she shot that scene, and she made me laugh today just as hard. As I got off the plane, I heard that Kirstie had died. I am so sad and so grateful for all the times she made me laugh. I send my love to her children. As they well know, their mother had a heart of gold. I will miss her.”
Alley’s friend and fellow Scream Queens allume Jamie Lee Curtis shared a photo of the two from the Fox series on Instagram.
“I’ve just heard the sad news that Kirstie Alley has died,” lei scrisse before saluting Alley “as a great comic foil in @tvscreamqueens and a beautiful mama bear in her very real life.”
Speaking to their personal bond, Curtis continued, “She helped me buy onesies for my family that year for Christmas. We agreed to disagree about some things but had a mutual respect and connection. Sad news.”
John Travolta, che ha recitato nel 1989 film Senti chi parla with Alley, ha scritto su Instagram, “Kirstie was one of the most special relationships I’ve ever had. I love you Kirstie. I know we will see each other again.”
Alley’s It Takes Two co-protagonista, Steve Guttenberg anche ha pubblicato un tributo su Instagram for the actress. “Kirstie met me at her house with a tuna sandwich on my favorite bread. ‘Steve, I know all about you and your love of rye bread. Eat some tuna.’ We were rehearsing It Takes Two, and every day she amazed me with her generosity of the tangible and with her soulfulness. The world is a bit empty without Kirstie,” scrisse.
Screen Queens Rising penned a tribute of her own su Twitter, beside a tweet that Alley wrote in 2018. “Whether you agreed with her or not, Kirstie Alley was an undeniable talent who brought joy to many – through the screen and with her warm, hilarious spirit. RIP, luv. You were one of a kind,” lei scrisse.
