Brad Pitt, who came to the Moscow International Film Festival, paid tribute to James Gandolfini, whose death shocked both Hollywood and ordinary viewers. Recall that the star of the Sopranos Clan passed away in Rome at the age of 52. He was in Italy with his son Michael, and on Saturday James was to be presented with a prize at the Taormina festival. But, alas, the artist had a heart attack.
“The sad news reached us this morning that we had lost the great actor James Gandolfini. He remains loved by us forever. He taught us a lot, and I'm sure he would like the show to continue,”Brad said to the metropolitan audience, after which the memory of Gandolfini was honored with a minute of silence.
HBO previously reported that "we are all in shock and immeasurable grief over the loss of a loved one in our family." “He was a special, great talent, but, more importantly, a gentle and loving person who was equally respectful to any person, regardless of his position or position,” they said on the channel.
