Verne Troyer, 'Mini-Me' in Austin Powers films, dies at 49

Myers, in a statement issued Saturday, called Troyer the "consummate professional and a beacon of positivity."

Mini-Me died in an early version of the "Spy Who Shagged Me" but a crowd at a test screening became upset, Troyer said, so they reshot some scenes.

Troyer once told British talk show host Jonathan Ross that he had a rare type of dwarfism called cartilage-hair hypoplasia .

Motley Crue drummer Tommy Lee tweeted: "Gonna miss my lil buddy!

He was hospitalized earlier this month after emergency responders in Los Angeles went to his home, according to media reports.

Verne hoped he made a positive change with the platform he had and worked towards spreading that message every day."

Troyer, who was reportedly 2 feet, 8 inches tall, once joked with CNN's Wolf Blitzer in 2002 that after gaining fame as Mini-Me he would go out in public with a hat and sunglasses on, "but it just doesn't seem to work."
