We are only two months into 2017 so far and we’ve already lost many great stars.
2016 was a brutal year that saw too many celebrity deaths and there were several hard-hitting ones right at the end of the year.
Some of the stars we have lost so far in 2017 include the beloved TV icon and activist Mary Tyler Moore, Oscar-nominated actor John Hurt, and Titanic actor Bill Paxton.

Titanic director James Cameron is honoring the life of his longtime friend Bill Paxton.
In a touching statement, the director remembered Bill, who he worked with on many films including Titanic, Aliens, True Lies and The Terminator.
“I’ve been reeling from this for the past half hour, trying to wrap my mind and heart around it. Bill leaves such a void. He and I were close friends for 36 years, since we met on the set of a Roger Corman ultra-low budget movie,” James told Vanity Fair.
He continued, “It was a friendship of laughter, adventure, love of cinema, and mutual respect. Bill wrote beautiful heartfelt and thoughtful letters, an anachronism in this age of digital shorthand. He took good care of his relationships with people, always caring and present for others. He was a good man, a great actor, and a creative dynamo…The world is a lesser place for his passing, and I will profoundly miss him.”
