WATCH: Goodfellas Star Lorraine Bracco Gets Choked Up About Costars Ray Liotta, James Gandolfini & Tony Sirico

The Sopranos actress raised a glass to her late friends on Rachael Ray Show.
  • Goodfellas star Lorraine Bracco is raising a glass to her late costars. 

    The actress, also known for her role on The Sopranos, appeared on Rachael Ray Show Friday and got emotional when Ray's husband John Cusimano asked to toast to two friends of Bracco's, Ray Liotta and Tony Sirico. As she raised her glass, Bracco chimed in, "And to Jimmy Gandolfini... We can't forget Jim." 

    "Who could ever?" replied Ray. 

    "It's been a weird time..." Bracco started. "Look, Tony Sirico was older, and I get it. As sad as I am, I get it. But Ray and Jimmy?" Ray echoed this, expressing how shocked she was about the passing of Liotta and Gandolfini and asking Bracco how she's coped. 

    "You know, what it says to me is to live every day as well and as much and give," said Bracco, getting visibly emotional. "Give, give, give. That's what I take away from it, really." 

    Liotta passed away unexpectedly in May of this year at the age of 67, while Gandolfini died of a heart attack in 2013 at only 51. Sirico was 72 when he died of dementia in July.

    "I adored all three of them," said Bracco.
