    cory ‘s death still hurts!!
    Rip all of them

  • Dee

    What about Peter O’Toole? He was a legend!

  • Matthew Morrison

    Cory Monteith was a loser nobody. Tired of hearing of him.

  • Peace & Locw

    @Matthew Morrison: I realize that might be your opinion but you should try not to speak ill of the dead. How would you feel if someone said something like that about you? Granted his death got more media attention than anyone’s else’s but still please show some respect.

  • Amber

    Paul :( It still hurts

  • soy

    @Peace & Locw: I dont think he’d mind since, you know, he’s dead

  • Sayer

    Cory’s and Paul’s deaths were shocking because they were unexpected. Gandolifini’s also. But, the legends, such as Joan Fontaine and Peter O’toole were not surprising. They lived long lives.

  • sfxdm9mm

    non of these people were important just a bunch of liberals working for the new world order

  • sfxdm9mm

    @Amber: he was a child molester!

  • ness

    @sfxdm9mm: please have some respect.

  • losa

    Paul’s death hurts very much. He was one of the most handsome and greatest guy. I just don’t get it that Bruno Mars’s Mother why is in the list? Was she a celebrity or what?

  • Bigeeta Jones

    What about James Avery aka Uncle Phil on The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air? I think he died on December 31.
