Roger Ebert passed away yesterday at the age of 70. See how the legendary film critic's famous friends are reacting to the news of his death.
Martin Scorsese said in a statement: "The death of Roger Ebert is an incalculable loss for movie culture and for film criticism. And it’s a loss for me personally. Roger was always supportive, he was always right there for me when I needed it most, when it really counted – at the very beginning, when every word of encouragement was precious. There was a professional distance between us, but then I could talk to him much more freely than I could to other critics. Really, Roger was my friend. It’s that simple. Few people I’ve known in my life loved or cared as much about movies. I’ll miss him — my dear friend, Roger Ebert."
