Stars Pay Tribute to Bernie Mac

As you already heard, comedian Bernie Mac passed away on Saturday at the age of 50 from complications due to pneumonia. Actors and comedians alike are all paying tribute to Bernie, remembering the man behind the smile.

George Clooney, who starred with Bernie in the Ocean's series, said: "The world just got a little less funny. He will be missed dearly."

Brad Pitt said, "I lament the loss of a ferociously funny and hardcore family man. My thoughts are with [wife] Rhonda and their family. Bernie Mac, you are already missed."

Luke Wilson, who co-starred with Bernie in Charlie's Angels told People magazine: "He couldn't have been a nicer guy. He just seemed like a real family man and just a nice guy on the set. Just very kind of normal guy."

Samuel L. Jackson, who appeared with Bernie in Soul Men earlier this year said he was "one of the pre-eminent comedians of our generation", adding: "He was also an attentive husband, a great father and loving grandfather. I feel blessed to have shared years of friendship with Bernie Mac, and I'm honoured to have finally co-starred with him in what I consider to be his finest cinematic acting achievement."
