Dolly Parton Remembers Actress & Steel Magnolias Co-Star Olympia Dukakis

Back in late-80s Dolly Parton and Olympia Dukakis co-starred in the iconic movie Steel Magnolias with Julia Roberts, Sally Field, Daryl Hannah and Shirley MacLaine.

Saturday, Olympia passed at the age of 89.

Dolly remembered her friend and co-star, saying “I was so sorry to hear that Olympia Dukakis had passed away. She has been one of my favorite people that I have ever known or worked with. I really got very close to her and felt like we were good friends. Even though I didn’t get to see her much, I thought of her often and knew that she was such a quality human being. She will be missed by her fans, her family, and those of us that were lucky enough to get to know her personally.”

Fans of Steel Magnolias will remember these scenes from the movie…
