Hollywood is mourning the loss of MICHAEL CLARKE DUNCAN after the actor died Monday at the age of 54.

Duncan's "Green Mile" co-star TOM HANKS said, "I am terribly saddened at the loss of Big Mike. He was the treasure we all discovered on the set of 'The Green Mile.' He was magic. He was a big love of man and his passing leaves us stunned."

Duncan's fianceé OMAROSA MANIGAULT, told RadarOnline.com, "I am devastated. He was the love of my life." Her rep added, "[Omarosa] Manigault is grateful for all of your prayers and asks for privacy at this time. Celebrations of his life, both private and public, will be announced at a later date."

The Oscar-nominated actor suffered a myocardial infarction on July 13 and never fully recovered. He has been hospitalized in Los Angeles since his heart attack.

Many stars, including OCTAVIA SPENCER, GABRIELLE UNION, WENDY WILLIAMS, KALEY CUOCO, LESLIE BIBB, NIECY NASH, MICHAEL EALY, ROSARIO DAWSON, RUSSELL SIMMONS and SHERRI SHEPHERD, sent their condolences via Twitter.
