Hollywood legend James Woods has won over a critic by posting a “beautiful” statement about his good friend, the late Penny Marshall.
“I noticed Penny Marshall trending today,” Woods said in a Tuesday post on Twitter.
“Though not sure why, I’ll take any opportunity to reminisce about one of my favorite friends and directors.
“One Christmas she had a small gathering at her house, and I remember sitting with her on the couch.
“Joe Pesci played the guitar and we sang Christmas carols.
“Hard to visualize, I’m sure, but a happy memory.
“We were all ‘strays’ that year and her home was always open.
“She loved her friends like family.
“I think that’s why I had so much fun doing RIDING IN CARS WITH BOYS.
“That set felt like a big, rousing family.
“I just loved her so much.
“During the wedding scene, she and I did a jitterbug, showing Brittany and Lorraine our moves.
“They laughed pretty hard and rightfully so.
