Pete Postlethwaite Best Actor In The World Today?, Screen legend Elizabeth Taylor, tech guru Steve Jobs, and music star Amy Winehouse are just a few of the celebrities who died in 2011. Hollywood lost multiple film stars, including Jane Russell and Pete Postlethwaite; icons of television, like Harry Morgan and James Arness; and directors, like Sidney Lumet and Ken Russell. In addition to Winehouse, the music world mourned the loss of rapper Heavy D, singer Gerry Rafferty, and songwriter Nick Ashford.
ELIZABETH TAYLOR. Film legend Elizabeth Taylor, who rose from a child actor to become one of Hollywood’s most talented actresses, died at age 79 from congestive heart failure on March 23, 2011. In a career spanning seven decades, Taylor was nominated for five Oscars and won the best actress honor twice. In real life, she battled excess weight and drug addiction, and was married eight times, including twice to actor Richard Burton.
STEVE JOBS. Apple Inc co-founder and former CEO Steve Jobs, counted among the greatest American CEOs of his generation, died on October 05, 2011 at the age of 56, after a years-long and highly public battle with cancer and other health issues. Jobs, who fought a rare form of pancreatic cancer, was deemed the heart and soul of a company that rivals Exxon Mobil as the most valuable in America.
AMY WINEHOUSE. Grammy Award-winning singer-songwriter Amy Winehouse died on July 23, 2011 at age 27. Known for her beehive hairstyle and distinctive soulful voice, Winehouse had high levels of alcohol in her blood at the time of her death, which was officially ruled as death from “misadventure.” Her death caused an outpouring of grief and sent her music back to the top of the record charts.
PETER FALK. Peter Falk, an Emmy winning actor who played an absent-minded but shrewd police detective on the hit 1970s television show Columbo, died on June 23, 2011. Falk began his career on the stage. By the late 1950s he began to star in Broadway productions, and soon made his move to Hollywood. Columbo would remain his most recognizable role – the show became a smash hit after its debut in 1971 and continued playing on TV for many years and even spawned several TV movies later in the actor’s life.
