Earlier this year, Liotta’s family appeared at a ceremony where he received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

Karsen, Liotta’s daughter, spoke at the event and said, “It was a huge honor for him and he was proud of himself, as me and my whole family were. I know it was definitely very special to him and it was a monumental moment in his career."

She said her father would have been surprised by the love he received following his death.

"I mean, of course everybody loved him, but he didn't look at his life and his work as if everybody's watching all the time," she said. "He did it because he loved it."

The family has been dealing with a little bit of drama recently. Liotta’s Facebook account was hacked. The person who took over started posting celebrity death hoaxes and was spreading fake news to his followers.

The hacker posted links to stories that falsely claimed Ellen DeGeneres, Bruce Willis, and Arnold Schwarzenegger had died.

Another link directed his fans to an explicit website with adult material.

Sources said the family was able to regain access and has since stopped the hacker from spreading lies.
