River Phoenix - My Favorite Famous Person

Do you like to see the movies? Do you know the most handsome boy in Hollywood? Though the handsome boy that everyone thinks can be different , I think that River Phoenix is the movie star who is just the right man who sparkled in Hollywood even if he doesnt exist in this world and there are a large number of actors and they appear in the future. Why he is famous is because of his too early death and because he played brilliant roles in many movies for his short life. When I saw his movie for the first time, Ive got crush on him. I think that he had something special which appeal to us.

At first, his background is interesting. He was born on August 23, 1970 in a small house in Oregon. He was firstborn child of five children. During his childhood, his parents joined a cult known as the children of God and traveled extensively until when they heard disturbing news about the leader. Since then, as they werent protected by the church any more and were in a desperate struggle to make ends meet, River, at age five, often sang and played music in the streets to earn the money.

In the early morning of October 31, 1993, River took a lethal dose of a mix of drugs and died on the sidewalk outside. He was only 23 years old.

Second, he achieved success in many movies and received many awards. At the age of 10, he started to play on TV shows and his first appearing in film is Explorers in 1985. The next movie which is most famous of his movies and led him to be a star is Stand By Me. The story is about four boys journey to find the body missing. He was cast as Chris Chambers. He got a lot of acclaim for his acting and the movie was the hit of the year. Through this movie, everyone knew that he would be one of the best actors of his generation.

In closing, I believe that he is still one of the best actors and the most attractive actor because he left the fabulous movies and there are many fans who are fascinated with him. His death is a great loss to us. Why did he take much of drugs? What made him take drugs? I will never understand why he had to die. If he were alive, he would made it in the film. Although we cant see him in the new film any more, he keeps alive in our mind.
