Veteran actress Jaclyn Smith is still struggling to overcome the death of her mother five years ago, confessing she cries about the loss every day.

The original Charlie's Angels star, 68, reveals she had to seek professional help after her beloved mum Margaret passed away in 2009, because losing her exacerbated the pain the actress still felt following the death of her father, Jack, in 1993.

She tells People magazine, "I had to get a grief counselor, and I still cry every single day."
