SHIRLEY TEMPLE Child Star Dies At 85

shirley temple dies at age 85 (1)

This is sad news to wake up to. Shirley Temple, a child star from the 1930’s, died last night at the age of 85 from natural causes. She was the reigning child star as the country’s top box office star from 1935 – 1938; Shirley was more popular than stars such as Clark Gable, Bing Crosby, Robert Taylor, Gary Cooper and Joan Crawford, according to People. Her films, such as ‘Curly Top’ and ‘The Littlest Rebel,’ are credited with saving movie studio 20th Century Fox from bankruptcy. I remember watching her movies on TV on Sunday mornings when I was a kid: she was adorable!

Shirley retired from Hollywood at the age of 21; even back then, it was difficult to make the transition from child star to adult star. There were no steamy photoshoots for her! When she was honored by SAG in 2006, Shirley said:

I have one piece of advice for those of you who want to receive the lifetime achievement award. Start early.”

Shirley went into politics as an adult and even became the ambassador to Czechoslovakia. She married twice; her second marriage to Charles Black lasted for more than 50 years. He died just a few months ago. For those of you who never saw a Shirley Temple movie, take a look at her singing ‘On The Good Ship Lollipop.’

It’s amazing. I’m actually flying right after this to meet my niece for the first time. He [brother Kevin Jonas] in love with this baby, it’s ridiculous. He sends me pictures every 10 minutes. I think it’s just like the joy of his life right now, so I’m excited to go [see] him.”

And it looks like baby Alena worked her charms on her uncle, too. She looks fascinated with Nick. Too cute!

Breaking News: PHILIP SEYMOUR HOFFMAN Found Dead

Hunger Games Catching fire

OMG. Academy Award winning actor Philip Seymour Hoffman was found dead in Manhattan, according to CNN. He was found in his Manhattan apartment. Law enforcement sources tell CNN it appears Philip died of an overdose.

Philip was only 46 years old. He won an Academy Award in 2005 for ‘Capote.’ USA Today reports he had three kids (Cooper, age 10; Tallulah, age 7; and Willa, age 5) with costume designer Mimi O’Donnell. I don’t think I’m over-stating things when I say he was one of the most talented actors in movies these days. This is a great loss. Our thoughts are with his family and friends.
