Rachel Uchitel to SEAL Who Killed Bin Laden: 'Great Aim'

"Extra" gathered more celebrity reactions to the news Osama bin Laden had been killed in a raid on Sunday, including Rachel Uchitel, who lost her fiancé, James Andrew O'Grady, when the Twin Towers fell Sept. 11, 2001.

The former nightclub manager told "Extra's" Adrianna Costa she would like to thank President Obama personally. "I would love to say to him that the families and the loved ones in 9/11 are all very grateful to him."

Uchitel became famous when news outlets across the world showed an image of her holding a photo of O'Grady after the attack. She now says she believes her fiancé would be pleased. "I can definitely picture him with a cigar in his mouth, just being like, 'I'm glad they got him.'"

As for the Navy SEAL who actually killed bin Laden, Uchitel said, "Great aim!"

There is already a film in the works about the hunt for Osama bin Laden. "The Hurt Locker" screenwriter Mark Boal has been working on a film which centers on the very team that wound up killing the terrorist leader -- and now has an ending for the project that's scheduled to go into production this summer with Oscar winner Kathryn Bigelow directing, Variety reports.

President Obama is scheduled to visit Ground Zero on Thursday.
