What a tough day it must’ve been for Ginnifer Goodwin!
Ginnifer starred alongside the late actor in HBO‘s Big Love, and was understandably distraught over his passing.
Speaking with Entertainment Tonight, the 38-year-old said that it felt “wrong somehow” to be at the award show so soon after Paxton’s death.
The actress further revealed that it was her husband Josh Dallas who convinced her to attend the ceremony:
“[Bill] loved everything in Hollywood history and everything with Hollywood tradition, and he would’ve been so furious with me if I didn’t come celebrate. You can always see a piece of his big heart somewhere in all of his characters ├óΓé¼ΓÇ£ even in his villains. And so to pop one of his movies into the DVD player is to hang out with him, and I can do that whenever I need that Bill hang.”
She also held tight to his memory, saying:
“[He was] a good friend [with] a huge heart. Bill was, I can say, more alive than the others, so his not being a part of the world is hard to comprehend.”
We can’t imagine how difficult it is for her right now. We wish her love and light as she processes such a shocking occurrence.
