1. Marilyn Monroe

Born Norma Jeane Mortenson on June 1, 1926, this “blonde bombshell” became one of the most popular sex symbols of the 1950s and early 1960s. Despite only having a decade at the top, her movies grossed a staggering $200 million, which would be the equivalent of $2 billion today.

Monroe’s troubled marriages and her struggles with addiction and mental illness have been long documented. However, when she was found dead in her home in Brentwood, Los Angeles, California, on August 5, 1962 (she had died the previous evening) of “acute barbiturate poisoning,” Her death was front-page news in the United States and Europe. She was just 36 years old.

There have been many conspiracy theories surrounding Monroe’s death flying around since they found her ranging from murder by mob boss Sam Giancana, the CIA, and most notably, by the president of the United States himself, JFK. Due to all the speculation, the office of the Los Angeles County District Attorney reviewed the case in 1982 but found no evidence to support them and agreed with the findings of the original investigation. She remains today one of the most iconic women of the 20th century.

  1. Chadwick impressed me a lot. I really liked his acting. I would watch his movies over and over I will miss him .

  2. Tonny-Broe Parkin

    It really hit me when she got her heart attack onboard the plane she had boarded. I truly admired both her and her mother – both as human being and as actors.

  3. I’ve never even heard of your # 10, What about Elvis, the king of rock & roll, actor/love of every woman’s heart? Where does he come in at on your list?
    Also, what about Paul Walker/actor, starred in The Fast and Furious franchise, the longest running street car racing action series spanning the 90’s until present. 20 years running with nine movies, six of which he was one of the leading roles as character Brian O’ Conner along side Vin Diesel, starring as Dom Torento. Paul, 40 yrs old , tragically died in a fiery car crash when the Porsche he was a passenger in lost control hit a light pole then a tree and exploded into flames, literally burning Paul to death.
    Paul’s daughter, Meadow, later won a wrongful death lawsuit against Porsche for a undertirement amount of money in the death of Paul caused by a faulty fuel line. Where does Paul fall into your devastating celebrities deaths?

  4. Wow not mentioning the tragic and shocking murder of John Lennon is a shame. James Dean and Chadwick Boseman were very shocking as well. The others were sad and shocking but were inevitable due to their drug and alcohol abuse. Sharon Tate was another shocking murder. Thank you April patgault@comcast.net

  5. Robin Williams, Whitney Houston, both were devastating., to me. Robin Williams was a complete surprise! He was a genius and made his living with his brain. So, I can see he had no light at end of the tunnel experience. But, a shocking event. Whitney Houston, was incredible! Whenever she was singing I just took pause to hear the beauty of very note. But she couldn’t get away from. Bobby. The end was clear to me. Still an incredible woman. Her daughter was equally a shock.
    Michael Jackson, equally a shock. Killed by the very people meant to help him. I always just stopped whatever I was doing to watch him dance. His music was fantastic! One of a kind!

  6. Can’t believe you didn’t name Michael Jackson and Kobe Bryant, who gave you this list. You had several that were substance abusers.

  7. Where is John Lennon on this list. I am not a fan of his or the Beatles but I recognized that his tragis death had a huge impact worldwide.

  8. I agree with the 10 celebrity deaths that left fans devastated but what about ‘TINA TURNER’ and ARETHA FRANKLIN ? I was very,very devastated by their passing!!!
