Kathleen Turner is remembering her former co-star, the late William Hurt.
Turner, 67, shared with Fox News Digital that Hurt “was a glorious actor” and she is “grateful for the time together.”
“We not only worked on ‘Body Heat’ together with Larry Kasdan — the three of us worked together on ‘Accidental Tourist’ also,” Turner shared.
“A complicated, deeply intelligent man, he was a glorious actor. I am grateful for the time together.”
