Hollywood paid tribute to legendary comedian and filmmaker Jerry Lewis after his publicist confirmed he'd passed away at his home in Las Vegas at the age of 91.
Actor Robert De Niro, who worked with Lewis on 1982's The King of Comedy, praised him as a trailblazer in a statement released to the press. "Jerry was a pioneer in comedy and film. And he was a friend. I was fortunate to have seen him a few times over the past couple of years," DeNiro wrote. "Even at 91, he didn't miss a beat... Or a punchline. You'll be missed."
