Steve Buscemi’s film­maker wife Jo An­dres dies

Toronto Sun - - SHOWBIZ -

Steve Buscemi’s wife of over 30 years, Jo An­dres, has died.

Ac­cord­ing to ed­i­tors at E! News, the film­maker, chore­og­ra­pher, and artist passed last week in New York City. She was 65.

A cause of death has not been made pub­lic, and a rep­re­sen­ta­tive for Buscemi has not yet com­mented on the news.

How­ever, pho­to­graphs ob­tained by Radar On­line show Buscemi, 61, and sev­eral oth­ers lift­ing a wicker cas­ket out of the fam­ily home in Brook­lyn on Wed­nes­day, with the mourn­ers then head­ing to a burial ser­vice with a po­lice es­cort.

Hol­ly­wood ac­tor John Tur­turro, who fea­tured along­side Buscemi in 1998’s The Big Le­bowski, was one of the mourn­ers who vis­ited the Board­walk Em­pire star’s house to pay his re­spects.

Buscemi and An­dres were last seen on the red car­pet to­gether in July when they stepped out at The Cin­ema So­ci­ety screen­ing of Puz­zle.

A cel­e­brated film­maker and artist in her own right, An­dres rose to fame within the 1980s art world through her ex­pres­sive per­for­mance art films, and made her di­rec­to­rial de­but with 1996’s Black Kites.
