Kristen Stewart Totally "Gutted" by James Gandolfini Passing

by at . Comments

Kristen Stewart starred opposite James Gandolfini in the 2010 independent movie Welcome to the Rileys, portraying a stripper who grows close to the actor's misguided father.

And in light of Gandolfini's death last week, the actress has released a statement that expressed her shock and heartbreak over the unexpected passing.

Kristen Stewart and James Gandolfini

“When I heard of James’ passing I was in New Orleans, where we met shooting, and every memory flooded back and gutted me. I’ll hold that time near to me forever. He was immeasurably great. My heart goes out to his beloved family.”

In a 2009 interview with Entertainment Weekly, Stewart gushed over Gandolfini.

”Jim was... the sh-t,” she said with a laugh. “He’s quiet. We got along well because we let it happen the way it’s supposed to. It was very organic, very cool.”

A funeral for Gandolfini is scheduled to take place Thursday in New York City.

Also the report that kristen was stoned at the academy awards. where is the proof. I watched the awards, she had an injured foot, but she didn't slur her words fall down or anything else. Again your are just a bunch of liers. You show us medical proof, certified by a doctor, and we might then believe you. Until then you need to apologize to her for lying.

You know with all these pranks going in kristens face, maybe she's not safe in LA right now. As far as we know she lives alone, and there are a lot paparazzi who don't like her. (they're just a bunch of bullies anyway) they always pick on people smaller than themselves. Maybe she should get herself a body guard. Remember there have been celebrities who have been hurt in the past, and it's usually women who are hurt.She doesn't have a boyfriend, hopefully someone will bring this up to her, she wonderful and I would hate to see her hurt.
