George Clooney Pays Tribute to Sydney Pollack

Posted on

George Clooney is speaking out on the death of film legend Sydney Pollack, who succumbed to cancer Monday at age 73.

“Sydney made the world a little better, movies a little better and even dinner a little better,” the actor – who worked with Pollack in 2007’s Michael Clayton – said in a statement.

Pollack, most famous for directing Out of Africa, Tootsie and They Way We Were, co-produced and starred in Clayton. (He also served as executive producer for Clooney’s Leatherheads.)

“A tip of the hat to a class act,” Clooney’s tribute continued. “He’ll be missed terribly.”

At the time of his death, the Oscar-winning director was surrounded by family at his home in Pacific Palisades, said his publicist Leslee Dart.
