Who is your favourite dead celebrity?

  1. Migodden profile image74
    Migoddenposted 8 years ago

    For me it's George Carlin. He was the greatest comedian ever, and one of the greatest minds.
    But Micheal Jackson is also an interestingly dead fellow isn't he, What do you think WHO'S YOUR FAVORITE DEAD CELEBRITY?

      Id have to go with Michael Jackson as well, beat it, billie jean, true classics.

        mistyhorizon2003posted 8 years agoin reply to this

        I went right off Michael Jackson after I read that once his fortunes took a downward spiral, his Neverland Ranch ended up going virtually derelict, and the wild animals he kept there, (inc elephants etc) were discovered in horrendously cramped conditions and in a terrible state. Most of them ended up in roadside zoos as a result. Tragic!! Also very suspicious on the whole child molesting saga, and suspect he may well have been guilty of the accusations, but was no doubt advised to pay up hush money rather than end up like Gary Glitter, i.e., with no career at all, and publicly loathed.

      GEORGE CARLIN - one of the reasons why I think critically. I love him, he is a legend. An American icon. He's my favorite too.

      My other favorite is Dean Martin. I just don't know, he has that charisma and humor. A reputation of always being drunk (which is not something to be proud of) but that's who he was.

    Marlon Brando, of course. Sergio Leone, director of The Good, The Bad, and the Ugly. Then Alfred Hitchcock and Stanley Kubrick. Okay, so I'm a classics freak. Shoot me. smile

    Oliver Reed definitely, as my Husband used to hang out with him when he lived here in Guernsey, and Oliver truly was a lovely guy, (not just mad on alcohol as most people think). Even his dogs were all stray dogs he found in various countries when filming on location and Oliver paid for the quarantine to bring them back to Guernsey with him. A truly great actor, and a sad loss to the acting world.
