Ray Liotta Previously Spoke About Becoming Closer With Fiancée Jacy Niotta During Pandemic
While speaking to People in November 2021, Ray Liotta spoke about becoming closer with his fiancée Jacy Niotta during the COVID-19 pandemic. “Luckily, I had met somebody, and it brought us really, really close, to the point now where I’m engaged,” Liotta stated. “So I like to think that was the reason. I’ve heard that there’s a lot of people whose relationship didn’t work out because they were with each other so much. But she’s just great.”
Ray Liotta further explained that he’s grateful for his relationship and everything in his life. “After years, you grow up, and you just see the pattern of things. I’ve definitely developed more patience. Now I’m grateful for my health. And being born. For my parents that adopted me. I mean, it could have gone a lot of different ways.”
Along with speaking about his personal life, Ray Liotta spoke about avoiding being typecast for roles. “Bad guys seem to stand out to people. It’s weird how this business works, because I’ve definitely had a career that’s up and down.”
He went on to add that for some reason he was busier in 2021 than he has been in all the years he’s been acting. “And I still feel I’m not there yet. I just think there’s a lot more.”
