Henry Hill - Henry Hill Lived 'A Complicated Life', Says Ray Liotta

Henry Hill, the late mobster turned Fbi agent who died on Tuesday (June 2, 2012), has been receiving tributes - albeit cautious ones - from the celebrity world. Howard Stern recalled his fond memories of having Hill on his radio show, though added, ".Henry was a despicable guy. I mean, he's killed people. He took the short cut in life".
Hill was portrayed on screen by Ray Liotta in Martin Scorsese's classic 1990 movie 'Goodfellas', and the Hollywood star delivered a similar cautious tribute to Stern upon hearing news of the mobster's death this week. He told Tmz.com, "Although I played Henry Hill in the movie Goodfellas, I only met him a few short times so I can't say I knew him but, I do know he lived a complicated life". However, the actor offered his condolences to Hill's loved ones, saying, "My heart goes out to his family and may he finally rest in peace". A onetime assistant of the notorious Lucchese crime family in New York, Henry was involved in the Lufthansa heist at John F. Kennedy International Airport in December 1978, when $5 million in cash and $875,000 in jewels were stolen - the robbery was featured in a scene in Goodfellas.
Henry later turned Fbi informant, and spent several years under the witness protection programme before being kicked out for committing crimes. In recent years, he became a frequent guest on 'The Howard Stern Show', as well as marketing his own spaghetti sauce and opening a restaurant called 'Wiseguys'.
