kristen stewart discusses james gandolfini death immeasurably great

A few days removed from the unthinkable loss of the iconic Sopranos star, many of James' acting colleagues are finally able to put their heartfelt thoughts on his passing into words.

In Welcome to the Rileys, one of Kristen Stewart's most critically appreciated films, the Twilight starlet plays a teenage stripper who finds a father figure in James Gandolfini.

Working on that flick together meant a lot to KStew; she says their relationship greatly transcended what we saw on the screen.

She was "gutted" by her friend's untimely death, and she released this statement:

“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.”

Aww, she really sounds like she's hurting!!

See a clip them acting together in a clip from their 2010 drama (below).

Ugh! They were so good together!! What a tragic loss!

James was 51 years old.

    Am I the only person who absolutely hates the word "gutted" which seems beloved by Brits?

    Re: teeter totter – Yep ! You're the only one, moron.

    No you are not the only one! The expression is quite moronic! One of the British slang words I hate! Gutted will always bring to me a picture of bloody intestines nothing else. Not something I would pair with a loss of my dear friend. Not at all! I can't understand why is it so hard to stick to appropriate words like: upset, disappointed, sad, etc. Perhaps it's the poor vocabulary we can blame for it? Or is it plain "I will pretend I am British" case?
