    An agent for actor and director Sydney Pollack says the Academy Award winner has died. He was 73.

    Agent Leslee Dart says Pollack died of cancer Monday afternoon at his home in Pacific Palisades. She says Pollack was surrounded by family.

    Pollack appeared in some of the films he directed, including the gender-bending hit "Tootsie," which starred Dustin Hoffman. Pollack won producing and directing Oscars for "Out of Africa" in 1985.

    He made me believe (sub consciously of course) he was not acting in Michael Clayton, which shows he was a good actor.

    Eternal Peace to all beings.
