An autopsy has confirmed that "The Sopranos" actor James Gandolfini died of natural causes from a heart attack Wednesday in Italy. Meanwhile, a newspaper report took aim at what the actor may have had to eat and drink at dinner the night he died -- emphasizing overindulgence -- but does it really matter?
According to the New York Post, which cited an unidentified source at the Boscolo Exedra Roma, Gandolfini had four shots of rum, two piña coladas and two beers while dining at the hotel with his son the night he died.
The source is also claiming that Gandolfini ate two orders of fried king prawns and a "large portion" of foie gras.
At a news conference Friday morning, family friend Michael Kobold stated that there were no drugs or alcohol found in Gandolfini's system in the autopsy.
Kobold also denied much of the New York Post report. As for the drinks, he said, "the piña coladas were virgin piña coladas; they were drunk by his son. So you guys know Jim, it's not his drink of choice. He doesn't drink piña coladas in 40 degree [Celsius] heat."Regardless of Gandolfini's actual last meal or his supposed reluctance to drink a piña colada in hot weather, we hope he enjoyed his food and drink. If it was fried prawns and foie gras, sounds like a darn good way to go.
