ABC/Donna Svennevik(NEW YORK) — Brad Pitt, who worked with James Gandolfini on three films, remembers the late Sopranos star as a “ferocious actor” and a “gentle soul.”

In a statement obtained by The Hollywood Reporter, Pitt says, “I admire Jimmy as a ferocious actor, a gentle soul and a genuinely funny man. 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.”

Pitt and Gandolfini both appeared in 1993’s True Romance, 2001’s The Mexican, and 2012’s Killing Them Softly.

Gandolfini died Wednesday in Italy of a heart attack. He was 51.
