Generous Gandolfini Hands Out Cash Boost

JAMES GANDOLFINI has become a hero on the set of THE SOPRANOS after agreeing to share his payrise with his 13 castmates.

The heavyweight actor caused controversy on the set of the TV drama last year (03) when he held out for more money, causing many to fear his demands would end the show.

But it has since been revealed he had his castmates' best interests at heart.

Co-star LORRAINE BRACCO, who plays Gandolfini's doctor and lover on the show, says, "He called the castmembers into his camper and said, 'Listen, I got this money and I want to share it with the cast.'

"He opened up a corporation called LOVE + KISSES and cut us all in on a really sweet deal. He's a great guy."
