Celebrities have a special place in our hearts, especially ones we grow up with and come to love on screen. There’s nothing more heartwarming than watching your favorite celebrity act in your favorite movies or shows, year after year. But just like us, celebrities grow old too. It’s so heartbreaking when they pass away since it marks the end of a beautiful era. These beloved celebrities unfortunately passed away this year. We’ll remember their name and fame for the rest of our lives.
Perhaps the most heartbreaking celebrity passing of this year was Matthew Perry from Friends. He was found dead in his home in Los Angeles on October 28th at the young age of 54. You probably know him as Chandler Bing, who was a mainstay on all 10 seasons of Friends. He also starred on Studio 60 on Sunset Strip, Fools Rush In, and 17 Again. Before he passed away, he published a memoir titled Friends, Lovers, and the Big Terrible Thing, where he was honest about his drug and alcohol addictions and how he spent $9 million to get sober (via Newsweek). Countless celebrities and fans remembered how Perry positively impacted their lives in many heartfelt tributes after he passed.
