The 53-year-old actress posted the heartfelt message on Instagram along with a candid shot of the two famous stars hanging out together.
“With everything that’s happening, maybe many people will forget that today is Prince’s birthday. But not me. I miss our two-hour conversations on the phone more than ever and every time I watch the news I wonder what he would think, what song would he write,” she wrote.
“Brother how I wish you were here living this moment you dreamt of and waited for. Happy birthday, It’s has started !! ???”
The ‘Desperado’ actress included a photo of the two of them on the set of the legendary singers 2005 music video, ‘Te Amo Corazon.’

“We miss him here in Minnesota more than ever ???,” one fan posted.
Another added, “I have been thinking of Prince too, and what he would be thinking and doing for his city right now. May he Rest in Power and may ee continue the fight for Justice.
