The acting veteran was in the Dominican Republic at the time of his passing, where he was shooting the film, Dangerous Waters, his publicist Jennifer Allen said.And 52 year old Jennifer took to Instagram to gush about the late actor as she recalled her experience filming her cop drama Shades of Blue alongside him from 2016 to 2018.And then when I finally met my birth mom in my forties, by then, I wasn’t as angry about it."Ray was my partner in crime on Shades of Blue … the first thing that comes to mind is he was so kind to my children," Jennifer began.It’s just another journey."Ray was the epitome of a tough guy who was all mushy on the inside.” After small roles in TV and a small role in 1983’s The Lonely Lady, Liotta received a Golden Globe nomination for 1986’s Something Wild.I guess that's what made him such a compelling actor to watch.

" The star continued: "The original Goodfella.“If you got one movie that people remember, that’s great.“If you got one movie that people remember, that’s great.We shared some intense moments on set those three years! "When I first heard he took the job on Shades of Blue, I was thrilled, and the first time we walked on set to do our first scene together there was an electric spark and a mutual respect and we both knew this was going to be good."We enjoyed doing our scenes together and I felt lucky to have him there to work with and learn from.The 1990s also saw him star in thriller Unlawful Entry alongside Kurt Russell, Cop Land with Robert De Niro and family drama Corrina, Corrina with Whoopi Goldberg.Like all artists he was complicated, sincere, honest and so very emotional.He also received a Screen Actors Guild nomination for playing Frank Sinatra in 1998 TV movie The Rat Pack.Like a raw nerve, he was so accessible and so in touch in his acting and I will always remember our time together fondly.Ray Liotta and Lorraine Bracco in Goodfellas Photograph: Warner Bros/Sportsphoto/Allstar The following decade included roles in Ridley Scott’s Hannibal, Joe Carnahan’s Narc and an Emmy for a guest appearance on ER.

Jennifer concluded: "We lost a great today … RIP RAY … it's so sad to lose you what seems way to soon … I will remember you always.Sending so much love and strength to your daughter Karsen, your family and all your loved ones.“I didn’t want to do another mafia thing, and I was shooting Hannibal,” he said to the Guardian.“I didn’t want to do another mafia thing, and I was shooting Hannibal,” he said to the Guardian." Seth Rogen tweeted: "I can't believe Ray Liotta has passed away.He was such a lovely, talented and hilarious person.” He later starred in Sopranos prequel movie The Many Saints of Newark in 2021.Working with him was one of the great joys of my career, and we made some of my favorite scenes I ever got to be in.Despite being known for his tough guy roles, Liotta has admitted that he is far from what people see him as.

A true legend of immense skill and grace.“I have never been in a fight at all, except for during sports, and that’s just pushing and goofy kid stuff,” he said in an interview." Kevin Costner wrote: "Devastated to hear the news of Ray Liotta's passing.While he leaves an incredible legacy, he'll always be 'Shoeless Joe Jackson' in my heart.His final roles, still to be seen, include Apple thriller series Black Bird with Taron Egerton and Cocaine Bear, directed by Elizabeth Banks.His final roles, still to be seen, include Apple thriller series Black Bird with Taron Egerton and Cocaine Bear, directed by Elizabeth Banks.What happened that moment in the film was real.God gave us that stunt.Jamie Lee Curtis, who starred with Liotta in 1988 drama Dominic and Eugene, that “his work as an actor showed his complexity as a human being” and that he was “a gentle man”.

Now God has Ray.James Mangold, who directed Liotta in the 2003 thriller Identity, also : “Shocked and saddened to hear of Ray Liotta’s passing." 50 Cent added: "R.Beyond the tough guy exterior and the tightly wound emotions of his signature characters, he was a sweet, playful and passionate collaborator and brilliant actor.I.P my condolences to Ray Liotta's close friends and family.He was an friend back in the day and it’s very sad.He was an friend back in the day and it’s very sad."
