Not Joining the Grieving Just Yet

UPDATE: Guys, look at the next post as well ...

So I could mention a Hollywood actor who died by suicide, even though he was very talented, still had money, still had career options ahead of him, was doing OK with the alcohol issue, had no less than three wives, one of whom was still very fond of him, and three kids, all of whom were very fond of him, but who decided for reasons not entirely clear to end it all, and leave a lot of people gutted.

Or, I could mention a Hollywood actor who died of natural causes after a long, tough, productive, and interesting life, much of which was lived outside of the movie business. Because talented people who are prepared to work hard, and try other things, actually can and do find ways of getting by that don't involve public adulation 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Guess who won?
