Liotta Bizarre Encounter With Goodfellas' Pesci

GOODFELLAS star RAY LIOTTA was left bemused after his first meeting with co-star JOE PESCI - as the diminutive actor kept "staring" at him.

Liotta, who played mobster HENRY HILL in the MARTIN SCORSESE 1990 classic, had a bizarre first encounter with the OSCAR-winning star who was intrigued by his appearance.

Liotta says, "I remember meeting Joe Pesci for the first time on Goodfellas.

"He came up to me and was just staring, staring and staring. I was thinking: 'What the hell's he staring at me for?'

"And then he said, 'I was just seeing whether your eyes were really like that'.

"I guess I just got lucky in the way I look."
