The unwed Frozen River star admits she even wears the ring from time to time - because it brings back fond memories of working with The Sopranos star in New Orleans, Louisiana.
She tells WENN, "I still have the engagement ring that Lois wore that Jim's character gave me and I still wear it quite a bit.
"He (Gandolfini) has that likability and we just hit it off. I felt that warmth from Jim right from the beginning... and I'll always have a wife's love for Jimmy. I'll carry that ring with me for the rest of my days."
