Gandolfini wasn't confident he could pull off such a role, Holofcener told The Hollywood Reporter in the wake of the Sopranos star's shocking death.

"He didn't believe he could play a romantic lead, even though everyone on the set thought he was sexy and hilarious," she said. "He was charming and self-effacing and incredibly talented. Not only did he pull off playing a leading man, his performance is subtle and moving and very, very lovely."
