James Gandolfini

Possible Last Photo Before Death

James Gandolfini dined at an Italian restaurant and was photographed during his meal shortly before he died.

We've been getting unconfirmed reports Gandolfini was at Vitti restaurant in Rome -- where the pic was taken -- hours before his death.  Although we know he was there, the restaurant can't confirm if it turned out to be his last meal.

And now we know ... doctors tried in vain for 40 minutes to resuscitate the actor.  They tried everything -- heart massage and other methods but there was no electric activity from the heart, meaning he was probably dead before he even got to the hospital.  The hospital confirms that.

There will be an autopsy, which will probably include a toxicology report that will reveal if drugs or alcohol were in Gandolfini's system.

The chief doc at the ER says it looks like the "Sopranos" star died of natural causes -- a heart attack.

Heaven forbid he died of natural causes and not alcohol and/or drugs, cuz that's all we care about I guess. RIP James. You were a good man.

Tommy Bahama has to be in mourning; he definitely had this thing for their silk shirts. Good taste.

some of the lowest cruelest judgmental anti-gay, anti-obese, anti-woman posters are on this site. they are angry about their miserable lives and attack those different (or even similar) to themselves. SAD...

GOD BLESS those who love others who they don't even know...
