Homages to the Czech-born filmmaker, who won Academy Awards for "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest" in 1975 and "Amadeus" in 1984, poured in on social media after Forman's death on Friday was revealed by his wife Martina, reports variety.com.
Jacob said Forman had an "immense body of work".
"He loved beer, tennis, Cannes, he spoke the truth, that's all. Milos will remain dear in my heart," Jacob tweeted in French.
American writer-producer Larry Karaszewski, who made two films (including "Larry Flynt") with Forman, said the filmmaker was "our friend and our teacher. He was a master filmmaker - no one better at capturing small unrepeatable moments of human behavior. We made two movies together and every day spent with him was a unique adventure. Milos loved life. I will miss his laughter."
