Overcome with emotion, Jamie Lee Curtis says the heartbreaking thing

As the film industry grieves for Kirstie Alley, her friends and coworkers—many of whom she collaborated with throughout her illustrious career—have started to express their memories of the late actress. The former Cheers star passed away on Monday at the age of 71 following a battle with colon cancer, according to her family.

The co-stars of Alley’s Cheers, Ted Danson, Rhea Perlman, and Kelsey Grammer, each discussed Alley on Monday. Grammer acknowledges in his statement that he “loved her,” despite his conviction that mourning the loss of a famous person is a “private problem.”
