Kim McGuire, the actress who famously played Mona ‘Hatchet-Face’ Malnorowski alongside Johnny Depp in John Waters classic cult film Cry-Baby, died Wednesday. She was 60.

McGuire passed away in a Florida hospital after a battle with pneumonia.



Her husband, Gene Piotrowsky, told TMZ that an unwell Kim entered a medical facility Tuesday, where doctors discovered the pneumonia and transferred her to the ICU. As they treated her, Kim went into cardiac arrest, twice, Piotrowsky told the outlet. h/t dailymail

‘Today is a very sad day,’ he tweeted Wednesday. ‘My best friend, and the love of my life past away this afternoon. I love you so much.’


Our thoughts and prayers go out to McGuire’s family and friends at this difficult time.
