"It was great seeing everybody; Bob (Robert De Niro) was there... Lorraine (Bracco). (Joe) Pesci didn't make it though. He sent a letter and then Bob read it. Basically it said, 'Sorry I can't f**king be there, but the f**king f**ks, f**k, f**k, f**k... what the f**k...' He's a funny guy." Ray Liotta turned the air blue during an appearance on U.S. show Jimmy Kimmel Live! as he recalled Goodfellas co-star Joe Pesci's absence letter, which was read out at their recent 25th anniversary get together at the Tribeca Film Festival in New York.
