Brad Pitt Reacts to 'Killing Them Softly' Co-Star James Gandolfini's Death

Brad Pitt has released a statement about his former co-star James Gandolfini, who passed away at 51 while vacationing in Italy of a heart attack.

The 49-year-old actor starred with James in the 2001 movie The Mexican, in the late Tony Scott‘s 1993 movie True Romance, as well as last year’s Killing Them Softly.

“I admire Jimmy as a ferocious actor, a gentle soul and a genuinely funny man,” Brad said. “I am fortunate to have sat across the table from him and am gutted by this loss. I wish his family strength and some semblance of peace.”

Our thoughts remain with James and his loved ones during this tragic time.
