"Today the world is left with one less gentleman," The Hollywood Reporter quoted Tarantino in a statement.

"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," he added.
