Tarantino, Hollywood Remembers Robert Forster

The late Robert Forster is being remembered by his Hollywood peers, including his Jackie Brown director, Quentin Tarantino. In a statement, Tarantino had this to say:

“Today the world is left with one less gentlemen. One less square shooter. One less good man. One less wonderful father. One less marvelous actor. I remember all the breakfasts we had at silver spoons. All the stories. All the kind words. All the support. Casting Robert Forster in ‘Jackie Brown’ was one of the best choices I’ve ever made in my life. I will miss you dearly my old friend. Bye bye Max. Bye bye Miles. Bye bye Bob.”

Co-stars and industry friends are also remembering the Academy Award nominated actor, including Samuel L. Jackson, Bryan Cranston, Aaron Paul and Bruce Campbell:

Robert Forster wasn’t only one of the best people I’ve ever known in the industry, he was one of the best people I’ve known anywhere. I met him at a film festival before I’d even directed my first film and we kept in touch and would meet for breakfast, where he gave me tips on the film business, what he did right and what he could have done differently. He had no reason to do this other than our spirits were kindred and he was kind. Later on I arranged for him to speak to groups of actors, where he’d dole out advice and entertainment and play the spoons for their delight. He’d do all this for free because, again, he was simply a kind soul. I just woke up to the news he passed away. It’s been a while since we’ve spoken and I wish I could have told him what he meant to me before today. It was a lot. Hope he’s somewhere playing those spoons like the pro he was in all ways. ❤️🙏❤️
