Fans Rally Behind Mira Sorvino After Her Heartbreaking Loss

The heartbreaking death of "Goodfellas" actor Paul Sorvino has fans reeling. The 83-year-old passed away due to "natural causes" with his wife — Dee Dee Sorvino — at his side, according to his publicist Roger Neal, per CNN.

"Our hearts are broken, there will never be another Paul Sorvino," Neal said in a statement on behalf of the family, according to CNN.

The actor is remembered for iconic roles in a number of movies and television shows, including "Law & Order," "Nixon," and "The Rocketeer." With 172 acting credits to his name, Sorvino was a giant in the entertainment industry (via IMDb).

Sorvino was also a family man, leaving behind his wife and three children, including actor Mira Sorvino, according to CNN. The "Mighty Aphrodite" star's dedication to her father can be seen in a viral clip of her taking time to honor him in her Oscar's acceptance speech. The moment brought Paul Sorvino to tears. Across social media, fans of both Mira and Paul Sorvino are rallying behind the family to show support amid their tragic loss.
