Everybody knew him for organizing lively pre-Oscar bashes at his home in Coldwater Canyon, nurturing A-list talents and sustaining perfect friendships with numerous stars that were represented by him.
That longtime Hollywood agent, Ed Limato, died at the age of 73 this Saturday.

Christian Muirhead, the William Morris Endeavor Entertainment agency representative, informed the press that the star died in Beverly Hills at his home after a long struggle with lung disease.

Ed Limato spent practically all 44 years of his star career at the International Creative Management and William Morris Agency. It is definitely known that there were such top stars in his list as Denzel Washington, Sharon Stone, Michelle Pfeiffer, Steve Martin, Mel Gibson, Richard Gere, Billy Crystal, and Kevin Costner.

It is not typical of Hollywood practices, but Ed Limato was a real friend for the majority of stars that were represented by him.

In a Variety profile in 2005 the star agent confessed that great talents are commonly regarded by agents as mere commodities which can bring huge profits to them. But Ed Limato sincerely believed that, on the contrary, talents should be served. If an agent really believes in his client’s success, he will be with his future star till the very end – through all ups and downs.
