Bill Paxton, Star Of Aliens And Titanic, Dies At Age 61

Many actors, writers, and fans took to twitter Sunday morning to express their condolences to Paxton's family and to tell everyone what a kind presence the entertainment world has lost. Although his death wasn't noted in the "In Memoriam" section on Sunday, his name was mentioned by its host, Jennifer Aniston.

From 2006 to 2011, he played Bill Henrickson, the patriarch of a polygamist family in Utah, on the HBO series Big Love. He was more alive than the others.

"When I read the pilot, there was a lot of action in the pilot and I thought 'Oh my god, are you ready for this?'" Paxton said at the time.

Born in Fort Worth, TX, Paxton was photographed in the crowd in Dallas the day President John F. Kennedy was assassinated. The Sixth Floor Museum in Dallas displays the picture. As a young man, he worked in the art department for "B" movie king Roger Corman, who helped launch the careers of numerous actors and filmmakers.

Paxton will be best remembered for his roles in the 90s, most notably in the weather-horror film Twister.

I am so saddened by Bill Paxton's passing. The show premiered on Thursday, Feb. 2 and is only four episodes into its mid-season run. He is survived by two children, James and Lydia Paxton, and his wife Louise Newbury.

Taking to the stage, an emotional Jennifer Aniston paid tribute to the late star.

Paxton brought a reliably human dimension to big-budget action adventures and science fiction. He and Lance Henrikson are the only two actors to fight losing battles against an Alien, a Predator and a Terminator, as iO9's Beth Elderkin notes.

Although the statement did not confirm when and where the actor's end came, a report in Rolling Stones confirmed that Paxton died on Saturday. He once told the A.V. Club about the time when James Cameron picked him up in his auto and took him to see Evil Dead 2 at 5 in the afternoon: "I got a call one day-I've told this story, but it's a good one-a real typical Jim Cameron conversation". "I think there's where the heart of American art is". While telling the story of when he had rheumatic fever in seventh grade, Paxton said the fever often causes damage to the heart valves. A childhood neighbor was the artist Thomas Hart Benton. Paxton gives a career-topping star turn as Hank Mitchell, a conscientious family man from the Minnesota backwoods whose well-meaning attempt to share out a surprise windfall of stolen mob money ends in bloodshed and betrayal.

Devastated by the sudden loss of my close friend and one of the finest actors in the business, Bill Paxton. Catch up on our Oscar Conspiracies now so you're in the know.
