Hollywood A-listers took to social media this weekend to honor Sam Rubin, the beloved KTLA anchor who died on Friday.

“Your professionalism was unmatched by your kindness and humanity,” Viola Davis wrote on Instagram. “I will miss your presence on The Red Carpet. God bless your loved ones. Godspeed.”

Rubin was a popular entertainment anchor on KTLA-TV’s morning show, and appeared across Hollywood at award shows and red carpet events. He died of a heart attack on Friday at age 64.

“KTLA 5 is profoundly saddened to report the death of Sam Rubin,” the channel wrote on X (formerly Twitter). “Sam was a giant in the local news industry and the entertainment world and a fixture of Los Angeles morning television for decades. His laugh, charm and caring personality touched all who knew him. Sam was a loving husband and father: the roles he cherished the most. Our thoughts are with Sam’s family during this difficult time.”

Comedian John Mulaney also took a moment to honor Rubin at the end of his final episode of John Mulaney Presents: Everybody’s in L.A., which aired live on Netflix on Friday night.

“A special L.A. goodbye to Mr. Sam Rubin,” Mulaney told the crowd before signing off.

Netflix CEO Ted Sarandos honored Rubin on Instagram, writing, “Awards season Red Carpets will never be the same without KTLA’s Sam Rubin. Always having the most fun and always a smile and a laugh. He was a legend in this town.”

On Twitter, Ryan Reynolds wrote: “Even if I was on my 85th interview that day, I was always happy to see Sam. Even if HE was on his 85th interview that day, he always brought genuine kindness, curiosity and an outside the box question.”
