The Last Words Of Some Legendary Celebrities
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.
#1 Whitney Houston – “[Going] to see Jesus.”
Whitney Houston was propelled into stardom by her powerhouse voice. There are few people since Whitney that have matched or even came close to hitting the notes or perfect vibrato that she did. Despite being so talented, famous and successful in her career, Whitney had a tragic life. She had a controversial relationship with Bobby Brown, who she orced in 2007. She admitted to being a drug addict, too. But, things seemed to be going well for the singer in 2007. Whitney was back in the studio, had a new movie coming out, and was scheduled to appear at a pre-Grammy party. However, she was found dead in a bathtub the day of the party. What was the cause of her death? It was accidental drowning, with cocaine use as a contributing factor. In the days leading up to her death, Whitney told her friends that she was going “to see Jesus.” Perhaps she knew (or even desired) what was going to happen to her.
#2 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.
