RIP, James Gandolfini
Gandolfini’s astonishing turn as Tony Soprano has made him TV’s most unassuming superstar, as well as one of its more improbable sex symbols—a balding, barrel-chested, 260-pound hunk of burning love.

I think it’s a documented fact.”) Financially, fame’s rewards have been unequivocal. The former character actor reportedly signed a two-year, $10 million deal with HBO last fall, and is now asking $6 million a movie. But personally? Fame? “He’s not thrilled about it,” says costar Edie Falco. “He’s a very quiet, shy person. He keeps saying, ‘I’m not all that interesting,’ which I happen to disagree with.”
