Hollywood legend James Woods has won over a critic by posting a “beautiful” statement about his good friend, the late Penny Marshall.

“I noticed Penny Marshall trending today,” Woods said in a Tuesday post on Twitter.

“Though not sure why, I’ll take any opportunity to reminisce about one of my favorite friends and directors.

“One Christmas she had a small gathering at her house, and I remember sitting with her on the couch.

“Joe Pesci played the guitar and we sang Christmas carols.

“Hard to visualize, I’m sure, but a happy memory.

“We were all ‘strays’ that year and her home was always open.

“She loved her friends like family.

“I think that’s why I had so much fun doing RIDING IN CARS WITH BOYS.

“That set felt like a big, rousing family.

“I just loved her so much.

“During the wedding scene, she and I did a jitterbug, showing Brittany and Lorraine our moves.
