Do you know who River Phoenix was?

Yesterday i was watching the movie Stand by me, i was touched by the story, so i went to check about the four young actors who they are and what they are doing now, so i discovered about River Phoenix.
He was a very promising actor, his career was about to explode and i think he would have become one big hollywood star, because he had a misterious and charming face and look, but the guy died at 23 for overdose.
R.E.M and red hot chili peppers wrote songs about him and his story, so i guess he was pretty famous, he was the brother of joaquin phoenix who was with him when he died!

So did you guys remember about him? what was the reaction of the media/hollywood when he died?

Re: Do you know who River Phoenix was?

I remember when he was on David Latterman talking about becoming a rapper. haven't heard much from him since.

Is there any creature on earth as unfortunate as an ugly woman?

I also came across this name a couple of months ago, also heard him as a promising actor. Too bad.

a lot of video about him on youtube and with a big number of views, i guess he was famous but may be we are too young on this board to remember about him

Re: Do you know who River Phoenix was?

I would estimate that about 5 of us on this board were actually alive when that happened. Anyway, Stand By Me is an acceptable way to kill a couple of hours.

He was so talented.This was a big loss
He played in the classic "My Own Private Idaho" (btw both his brother Joaquin and his sister Summer are actors.They are good but River had something special ).

All the money in the world can't buy you happiness. It's ridiculous that people really believe rich folk have no problems.

I loved River in My Own Private Idaho. It's strange to think it came out 20 years ago, it doesn't seem to age.
