River Phoenix

River Phoenix started out acting in commercials at ten years old. He became a star a few years later thanks to the coming of age 1986 film “Stand By Me.” The former child star successfully made the transition to more adult-themed movies and but the young heartthrob had a tough time handling the party side of Hollywood. At just 23 years old, Phoenix died of a drug overdose on the sidewalk outside of the infamous nightclub The Viper Room. He had been in the middle of filming “Dark Blood.” However, the film was scrapped after his death.
