Anthony Perkins

Actor Anthony Perkins may have earned an Oscar nomination for Friendly Persuasion but he will be best known for his role as the motel owner with serious mommy issues. Starring as Norman Bates in Alfred Hitchcock’s Psycho, Perkins reprised the role in three sequels. Perkins, who had previously only been with men, had sex with a woman for the first time at the age of 39. Perkins passed away from AIDS-related pneumonia on September 12, 1992. His widow, Berinthia Berenson, was killed on American Airlines Flight 11 during the 9-11 attacks in 2001.
