Photo by John M. Heller/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- William Shatner said Saturday he feels "really awful" that he will not be able to attend the funeral for Leonard Nimoy, his friend and co-star on Star Trek.

Nimoy, who played Mr. Spock to Shatner's Captain Kirk on the long-running TV show and in movies, died Friday at the age of 83.

The actor revealed he was struggling with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease in 2014, according to the New York Times. Nimoy had been a smoker, which contributed to the ailment, before he gave up the habit years ago.

Shatner tweeted Saturday that he was unable to get back to California in time for the funeral because he was in Florida doing a benefit for the Red Cross.



"I loved him like a brother," Shatner wrote on Facebook. "We will all miss his humor, his talent, and his capacity to love."

Though he was best known for playing Spock in Star Trek, Nimoy also worked in the theater, portraying Tevye in Fiddler on the Roof, and published poetry and books of photography.

Lawrence is reportedly on the set of Joy, a film that directed by Russell and starring Bradley Cooper and Robert de Niro. The foursome last worked together on Silver Linings Playbook. Rumors circulated earlier this week that, while on the set of the film, Russell and Lawrence got into quite a screaming match.

Lawrence said in a Facebook post that she doesn't use the social media site much, "because I can barely work email." Still, she felt the need to "clear...up" the story, which she calls a "terrible rumor."

"David O. Russell is one of my closest friends and we have an amazing collaborative working relationship," the Hunger Games star wrote. "I adore this man and he does not deserve this tabloid malarkey."

In fact, according to Lawrence, Joy "is going great and I'm having a blast making it."

The reality TV star discussed her transformation on Instagram, as well as how exercise has changed her life.

"Looking back at pictures of myself I didn't realize at the time how unhealthy my lifestyle actually was. People love to call me the fat one but as weird as it sounds I still don't think I would consider myself fat back then," she wrote. "Definitely overweight and unhealthy, yes. About two years ago I decided to turn to fitness as a form of therapy and as a stress reliever."

Looking back at pictures of myself I didn't realize at the time how unhealthy my lifestyle actually was. People love to call me the fat one but as weird as it sounds I still don't think I would consider myself fat back then. Definitely overweight and unhealthy, yes. About two years ago I decided to turn to fitness as a form of therapy and as a stress reliever. I started slow and eventually I started working out 4 to 5 days a week. We all have to start somewhere and doing something is better than nothing at all. Start small so you don't get discouraged and give up. Remember it is all about consistency. There are no quick fixes if you want long-term results. Working out is a huge part of my life now. I genuinely enjoy sweating out my frustrations and living a healthier life. My workouts are not all about vanity. They are about clarity for my mind and soul. We all have different journeys in life, make sure your journey is for you and you alone. Remember in the end the turtle won the race. Slow and steady. dedication and tenacity. ð "

She encouraged her readers to "start slow" with their own regimens so that they don't get discouraged.
