If you haven’t had a chance to read Drea De Matteo’s AMA on Reddit, you definitely should. Here’s the link. It’s one of the best and most honest AMAs I have read. Among her great answers she had these things to say about James Gandolfini:
I mean, I wasn’t on set with him as often as the other actors were, but I did have my time with him when he and i were cultivating somewhat of a relationship and an attraction. And I think that at this stage of the game, deborah lin gandolfini won’t be mad at me for saying this – I would have to say that he might have been the sexiest actor that i’ve ever had a chance to work with in a love scene capacity. Because he intimidated the SHIT out of me with those eyes. But I will share one other story of something that he did that’s an example of the kind of person that he is and the kind of mark that he left behind for all of us.
James Gandolfini. Because man, he would walk into a room, and every single girl in the room FELT his presence that only us girls know.
Just thought that was interesting to note. JG was an awesome guy, but he wasn’t known for his Brad Pitt looks. He was big, overweight, but that matters little when you have immense confidence and presence–that magnetic energy.Tweet
