This is stunning. Didn't see this coming.
Paxton created some of the most iconic movie lines of the 1980s simply by delivering them and infusing them with his own sense of humor.
He stole almost every scene he was in 1986's Aliens, which says a lot being such a powerhouse of a film.
He passed away from complications during surgery at 61 this morning.
Our love goes to his family and friends.
Honestly this just fucking sucks.
Bill Paxton, you left your mark brother.
