And Seyfried, who worked with him on his last film, "", remembers her time with him fondly, telling The Hollywood Reporter, "Gary's heart was so big I think each of us who loved him have a piece of it now. It's unreal that he's gone and I'll miss my friend more than I can say."

Garner was the star of Winick's film "", and has praised the moviemaker's friendly nature, adding to Entertainment Weekly: "Gary and I had the most successful collaboration possible. I don't mean success in terms of box office, or from anyone else's point of view other than my own. I left it better at what I do. He was one of the most inclusive people you could ever meet, and I was energised by our creative mess together everyday."

"From then on, there wasn't a single project that I didn't try to do with him. I think everybody who was a friend of Gary's considered him one of their best friends. He had a hundred best friends. He just was unafraid of being intimate. And that spilled over into his directing."
