22 River Phoenix River Phoenix River Jude Phoenix, born River Jude Bottom (August 23, 1970 – October 31, 1993) was an American actor, musician, and activist. He was the older brother of Rain Phoenix, Joaquin Phoenix, Liberty Phoenix and Summer Phoenix.

How River Phoenix is number 20 I have no idea, his death was so unexpected and heart breaking. I know people still crying over his death to this day, 23 years later. He was so young, and so loved. He was a gorgeous man, inside and out. He had a beautiful voice and he was such an amazing actor. River you live on.

River Phoenix was special. He was just such an amazing person who was not only very talented, but cared a lot. He was a vegan who protested animal rights and he was an environmentalist. I think more than anything though he had so much ahead of them, and he cherished life.

I can't believe that such a naturally talented angel is no longer with us. He was so special and still means a lot to me and he is also still missed by many people to this day.

Amazing person...

23 Cory Monteith

When I first heard it, I couldn't believe it and I still can't. Cory was such a nice person and we are all blessed to witness this amazing talent he had in acting and in singing. He will always be in my heart no matter what and he will always inspire me.

Such a beautiful man taken from the world too soon. It breaks my heart to know he's gone but his memory and all he done for kids and teens alike will live on. Inspiration- regardless of the cause of hs death.

One of the best on Glee the show will not be the same without him - mneilan
