Enough Said - James Gandolfini Remembered At Enough Said Premiere

The New York premiere of new movie Enough Said earlier this week (begs16Sep13) turned into an unofficial tribute to the film's late star James Gandolfini, as friends and former co-stars watched one of his final performances.

The movie was unveiled at the Paris Theatre on Monday night, when the cast and crew took time to pay tribute to The Sopranos actor, who passed away from a heart attack in Rome, Italy in June (13).

Julia Louis-Dreyfus, who stars opposite Gandolfini in the comedy, says, "This is how great an actor Jim was: He was no Tony Soprano. This guy was a thoughtful, generous, sweet, self-effacing guy-like the character he plays in the film... I wish he was with me on this carpet at this very second."

Toni Collette, who also appears in the film, adds, "I think when the experience of making a film has been so buoyant and lovely and fun, you want to celebrate that experience and share it with the world. But also, the film is dedicated to Jim. He is so divine in the movie. It will be bittersweet."

Director Nicole Holofcener says, "And I'm very sad that he's not standing here with us. He hadn't seen the movie. Maybe he's watching."

Members of Gandolfini's family and The Sopranos creator David Chase were at the event, alongside his colleagues on the show, Edie Falco, Aida Turturro, Steven Schiripa and Tony Sirico.
