Tom Hanks - Tom Hanks Among Stars At Michael Clarke Duncan's Funeral

Tom Hanks was among the celebrities who paid tribute to Michael Clarke Duncan at his funeral in Los Angeles on Monday (10.09.12).

The 54-year-old actor - who died in hospital on September 3, two months after suffering a heart attack - was laid to rest in Forest Lawn Memorial Park and Tom spoke about how his 'Green Mile' co-star was full of love.

He told HLNtv.com: ''Mike was in charge of love. He just had a zest and joy.''

Others who attended the service included Jay Leno, Vivica A. Fox and Michael's finacee Omarosa Manigault.

She told CNN: ''Doctors said he wouldn't survive after the heart attack [in July] for one or two days.

''I don't remember him as Michael the actor or entertainer. He was the love of my life, he is the love of my life. I'm going to miss him so much.''

When asked if she revived him after the July heart attack, the tearful former 'Apprentice' star said, ''Let's just focus on today and not go back to that day.''

It was confirmed last week that Michael died of natural causes with respiratory failure listed on the death certificate as his immediate cause of death.
