For famous people, their entire life is constantly documented in movies, books, and social media. Everything they say can be found online for years to come. Then, when a celebrity dies, one of the most common things that people want to know is: what were their last words? This famous person who had so much to say in life, so what were the words they ended with? Last words seem to be a reflection of an entire life, or a summary of what a person believed.
We often look to a person’s last words for guidance, wisdom and reassurance. Sometimes, they provide us with just that, but other times, a person’s last words are completely unexpected and out if the blue. Here are the last words of 15 legendary celebrities—from Bob Marley to Michael Jackson and Elizabeth Taylor. Some of their words are profound, others are tragic. Let us know if any of them surprise you.
15 Leonard Nimoy - "A life is like a garden..."
14 Amy Winehouse - "I don’t want to die."
13 George Harrison - "Love one another."
12 Bob Marley - "Money can’t buy life."
11 Whitney Houston - "[Going] to see Jesus."
10 Selena - "Yolanda, in room 158."
9 Marvin Gaye - "I made him do it."
8 Jimi Hendrix - "Until we meet again."
7 Charlie Chaplin - "It belongs to Him."
6 Walt Disney - "Kurt Russell."
5 Steve Irwin - "I’m dying."
4 David Bowie - "[Music] has been my doorway of perception..."
3 Michael Jackson - "Please give me some more."
2 Elizabeth Taylor - "All you can do in this world is help others..."
1 Heath Ledger - "I’ll be fine!"
It’s safe to say that we were all shocked when we heard of Heath Ledger’s passing. We were all anticipating the actor’s portrayal as the Joker in The Dark Knight, when news broke that the actor died of a drug overdose in January 2008. The drugs in this case were all prescription medications, commonly used to treat insomnia, anxiety, or pain. The actor’s last conversation was a warning about mixing the medications. His sister told him, over the phone, “You can’t mix drugs that you don’t know anything about.” He replied, “Katie, Katie, I’ll be fine!” We all wish that his words were true, but sadly, the only things that movie fans have left of Heath are the movies in which he acted so amazingly well.
