On Thursday, tragedy befell Hollywood as legendary actor Ray Liotta passed away. The Goodfellas star reportedly died in his sleep at the age of 67 in the Dominican Republic. Now, The Hollywood Reporter writes how Liotta’s fiancée, Jacy Nittolo paid tribute to the late actor in the most beautiful way.

Jacy Nittolo and Ray Liotta had been engaged since the end of 2020 and Nittolo took to Instagram to pay tribute to her late partner. Nittolo shared a collection of photos of her and Ray Liotta’s time as a couple, holiday snaps, group photos, and cute innocent moments of the pair sharing a kiss or two. The photos, which you can see below came with a touching written tribute. “My life these past couple of years has been nothing but truly magical. Ray and I share a deep love that I will cherish in my heart forever. We laughed daily and we were inseparable. The chemistry was wild in the best way. He was everything in the world to me and we couldn’t get enough of each other. The kind of real love that one dreams of. He was the most beautiful person inside and out that I’ve ever known…and even that is an understatement.”

Jacy Nittolo’s words speak of an incredible relationship and highlight how massive a hole Ray Liotta will leave in his fiancée’s life. Along with Nottolo, Ray Liotta leaves behind his daughter Karsen and his death will strike the hearts of the hordes of fans the actor has across the globe. Just days before his untimely death, Liotta posed for a selfie with a fan and appeared in good health and good spirits. Something that makes his death even more shocking, is its sudden and unexpected nature. After all, 67 is no age to pass on.

Ray Liotta’s fiancée Jacy Nittolo is of course not the only one to pay tribute to the legendary actor. Among the tributes paid was a heartfelt message from Kevin Costner, Costner starred alongside Liotta in the film Field of Dreams and highlighted the incredible legacy the actor leaves behind. Goodfellas was undoubtedly one of Ray Liotta’s greatest successes, the film was directed by Martin Scorsese and starred another Hollywood legend Robert DeNiro. Both Scorsese and DeNiro paid tribute to Liotta, with DeNiro sharing his deep sadness and commenting how Liotta was far too young to have passed away. This was a sentiment echoed by Scorsese, who also commented on how proud he was of Liotta’s incredible portrayal of Henry Hill in Goodfellas.

DeNiro, Scorsese, and Costner are of course not the only people to pay tribute to Ray Liotta. Other names who have written words of condolence and celebrated the life of the legendary actor include Joe Pesci, Lorraine Bracco, Jennifer Lopez, Seth Rogen, Giancarlo Esposito, and many more. The tributes have poured in and will surely continue over the coming days, which goes to show what an incredible mark on Hollywood Ray Liotta has made. However, no tribute can compare to the beautiful words written by Liotta’s fiancée Jacy Nittolo, nor could any tribute hold as much meaning as hers. Whilst of course Ray Liotta has made his mark on Hollywood, the mark he has left on his loved ones’ lives strikes more importance than anything else. The loss of a partner in life is profound and Nittolo will undoubtedly be feeling it keenly. However, her tribute shines a light on the positive, the memories the couple shared, and no better a tribute can be written.
