The Last Words Of 10 Of America’s Favourite Celebrities
Every single one of us loves celebrities in their own way. It depends on their interests and on the kind of personality that we like, but most of them know how to be interesting in the huge range of different situations. One of these situations, you must’ve understood it by now, is their own death. Some of them saw it coming, others had no idea but still managed to leave us in a very classy, charming way. Here are some of the “famous last words” from the world of celebrities.
1. John Fitzgerald Kennedy
When Nellie Connally, wife of then Texas Governor John Connally said to the president that he couldn’t say that the people of Texas didn’t give him a nice welcome he answered by saying: “No you certainly can’t.” Bang. Dead.
2. James Brown
When James Brown went to pay a regular visit to his dentist he didn’t think that he would redirect him directly to the hospital, where he was admitted with a case of pneumonia. In his hospital bed he told to his longtime friend and manager Charles Bobbit “I’m going tonight”, then he fell asleep and after three hours quietly passed away.
3. John Lennon
“Excuse me, are you John Lennon?” “Yes, it’s me”. This is the last dialogue Lennon ever had with someone else, and it happened right before Mark Chapman shot him in Strawberry Fields. As he bled out he crawled into his building and said “I’m shot” before collapsing to the ground.
4. John Wayne.
On the last die of his cancer struggle, he was laying on his bed waiting for the moment, when his daughter Alissa approached him, took his hand and asked him if he recognized her, to which he answered: “Of course I know who you are. You’re my girl. I love you.”
5. Michael Jackson.
In his last days, Jacko would often escape his own house in order to not be followed and harassed by paparazzi. Before his last escape he could be heard asking his doctor, Conrad Murray, “more milk” which was the code name he gave propofol, the hospital anaesthetic to which he overdosed.
6. Marvin Gaye.
When his 1983 tour ended, Marvin decided to retreat at his parent’s house, where his mother was recovering from a kidney surgery. One day he stepped into an argument between his parents and started to argue with his dad. “Mother I’m going to get my things and get out of this house. Father hates me and I’m never coming back.” Seconds later Marvin Gaye Sr. walked into the room and shot Marvin in the heart and shoulder with a shotgun.
7. Oscar Wilde
When lying on his dying bed, Oscar said the following words: “The wallpaper and I are fighting a duel to the death. One of us must go.” What a way to step out of the game, uh?
8. Steve Jobs
We all know how long and painful Steve Jobs’ illness was. Moments before dying he realized and could only repeat “Oh wow. Oh wow. Oh wow” before fainting into the neverending sleep.
9. Elvis Presley
Elvis was spending a nice evening at home when he said “I’m going to the bathroom to read”. Nothing glorious, just a normal man at home.
10. James Dean
Moments before the terrible car crash that ended Dean’s life he said to his friend Rolf Wütherich who was in the car with him that “This guy’s gotta stop… He’ll see us”.
