What do celebrities owe the public? This is a question that’s been floating around for generations. Yes, famous people wouldn’t be famous or successful without their fans. But they do have their own private lives to live. Right? Or is it too much to ask for a single photo? Case in point… Redditor aitarudecelebrity wanted […] More

Many of your favorite film celebrities you adore and worship after watching them for years are still human beings... who can be a contradiction of how they're depicted in Hollywood.

What about Bobby Driscoll, best known for voicing the title character in Disney's Peter Pan?

He died of heart failure, also alone, and his body was discovered in an abandoned building in the East Village of Manhattan. His body was later buried in a pauper's grave and remains on New York's Hart Island.

The deaths of famous people can hit people really hard, especially when they were taken from us way too soon.

From politicians, singers, actors, and others who've made a huge contribution to society, their deaths are a constant reminder of our fleeting mortality on this planet.
Some people can have a difficult time, more than others, when a venerated individual is no longer with us, and the feeling of despair can be akin to losing a family member.
