R.I.P. to James Gandolfini, a great actor and man, and someone who will be greatly missed by so many.

You’ve probably heard many tributes to him by others, but here are some memorable quotes from the man himself courtesy of an article at vulture.com:

“Standing in public in other people’s clothes, pretending to be someone else. It’s a strange way for a grown man to make a living.” –Vanity Fair, 2009

“A large number of actors and musicians are from [New Jersey]. We are overrepresented in the culture. You have a blue-collar, middle-class sensibility right next to one of the greatest cities in the world, which can make for some interesting creative impulses.” –New York Times, 2012

I think I feel a lot. I never wanted to do business or anything. People interest me, and the way things affect them. And I also have a big, healthy affinity for the middle class and the blue-collar and I don’t like the way they’re treated and I don’t like the way the government is treating them now … -GQ, 2004
