Robert Forster Remembered in Hollywood as ‘Uncommonly Kind’ and ‘a True Gentleman’Celebrity fans and friends of Robert Forster came out in droves to pay tribute to the “Jackie Brown” and “Twin Peaks” actor, who died Friday from brain cancer.

“El Camino” star Aaron Paul tweeted that he was heartbroken to hear of Forster’s passing, calling him a “beautiful man” and “a true gentleman.”



I am heartbroken to hear the news of the passing of Robert Forster. My god. I had the privilege of knowing this beautiful man and working along side of him. A true gentleman that loved to act. I love you my friend. Thank you for loving me. You are and always will be a legend. ??-? pic.twitter.com/CokPGjIDzU

Forster’s “Breaking Bad” costar Bryan Cranston also weighed in, recalling the first time they worked together four decades ago.



I’m saddened today by the news that Robert Forster has passed away. A lovely man and a consummate actor. I met him on the movie Alligator (pic) 40 years ago, and then again on BB. I never forgot how kind and generous he was to a young kid just starting out in Hollywood. RIP Bob. pic.twitter.com/HtunD0Fx6g

Forster, who died Friday in his Los Angeles home, made his first impression on Hollywood audience in 1967 with John Huston’s “Reflections in a Golden Eye,” starring Marlon Brando and Elizabeth Taylor. In the years that followed, Forster had roles in films like “The Lady in Red,” “The Black Hole” and “Delta Force,” but it was Quentin Tarantino’s “Jackie Brown” that gave his career a boost… and an Oscar nomination for Best Supporting Actor. Forster went on to star as Sheriff Frank Truman on “Twin Peaks” and can currently be seen in “El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie” on Netflix.

So sad to hear of Robert Forster’s passing. Am of the right age to have been obsessed by The Black Hole (I even had an action figure of Capt. Holland) and Alligator. Then I was just wowed by him in Jackie Brown. He’s also heartbreaking in recent What They Had. A great actor. RIP. pic.twitter.com/v7DwuI8TCS

I’ve never met anyone quite like #RobertForster. He was uncommonly kind and generous to me and my family; I suspect there are scores of people who would tell you the same thing. https://t.co/aeQsm3mIUR pic.twitter.com/DQXEuBHwvR
