The 'Hunger Games' actor misses his family in the United States as he stays overseas and hasn't seen them for nearly a year because of the travel restrictions.

AceShowbiz - Stanley Tucci hasn't seen his family "for almost a year" because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The actor has recently been living in London and, because of the pandemic, he hasn't been able to spend time with his family in the U.S.

Asked about living in London, Stanley replied, "I miss my family. I miss my parents. I haven't seen them for almost a year because of the pandemic."

"My parents were still living in the house I grew up in and I moved from Westchester, New York, and I was living 10 minutes away. I used to see them all the time."

Speaking on the Table Manners with Jessie & Lennie Ware' podcast, he credited his Italian heritage for his strong familial relationships.

"My parents never lived too far away from them (grandparents) and I ended up not living too far away from my parents," added the star.

He'll continued to explore his origins in "Stanley Tucci: Searching for Italy" - the actor's travel and food show - which has been renewed for a second season by CNN.

Meanwhile, the actor opened up on his secret battle with oral cancer in September this year.

"I couldn't do surgery, because the tumour was too large... so high-dose radiation and chemotherapy are the only things that can help, and luckily the cure rate was very high," he recently said.

"I was unable to eat solid food for six months, I lost 30 pounds and my tastebuds and saliva glands were destroyed, as was the inside of my mouth. It has taken, really, three years to get back to almost normal."
