The Sunrise star lost her father, Jim, to a heart attack 17 years ago.
Speaking to Stellar, the 50-year-old described it as “the worst day of her life”.
'It was the worst day of my life; it was horrific,' she told the publication.
'I don't want to stop crying, because I feel like then I'll forget him.' she added.
Barr said she honours her father’s memory come Father’s Day.
'My husband is the same as Dad — he does love a very good red wine — and we’ll say, "This one’s for Jim." He loved very good champagne, too, so it’s a very good excuse to have a couple of drinks.'
