Tributes paid to director Miloš Forman following his death, aged 86

Tributes to Miloš Forman have been pouring onto social media over the weekend following the news on Saturday that the One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest director had passed away at the age of 86.

Forman will be remembered by most as the director behind the multi-award winning adaptation of Ken Kesey's novel starring Jack Nicholson, which won in all five major categories at the 48th Academy Awards in 1975, but over the course of a career spanning 40 years Forman had amassed an incredible body of work that also included films such as Taking Off, Ragtime, Hair, Amadeus, The People vs. Larry Flint and Man on the Moon.

Since the announcement of his passing this weekend, those who knew and worked with him, as well as those inspired by his work, have been paying tribute to the late director, including Man on the Moon star Jim Carrey, director Edgar Wright and Samuel L. Jackson.
