Iconic 80's movie director John Hughes has died from a heart attack.

He directed such films as The Breakfast Club, Pretty in Pink, Ferris Bueller's Day Off, Sixteen Candles, Uncle Buck, Weird Science and more.

His films were great, and really captured what hell High School and teenage life can be.

Here's a cool little montage someone from Youtube has done on his films. I might watch Ferris Bueller tonight out of respect.

Edward Woodward the English actor has died, he was 79. Best known in Australia for being Breaker Morant in the excellent film of the same name. He was also the main character of the British spy show "Callan", and the American show "the Equalizer". Also he was the main character of the cult British film "the Wicker Man".

Heart attack, In my opinion it is obviously drugs because a 32 year old wouldnt have a heart attack.
While I'm no expert on the matter, I do know that this is completely untrue. I'm not saying this was not caused by drugs (it's Hollywood - it's likely), but to say that you can't have a heart attack at that age is stupid.

A friend of mine nearly died of a heart attack when he was only 16. He wasn't on any drugs.

This is very sad, I had a bit of a thing for Brittany Murphy back in the day :(. It is very rare for someone to have a heart attack, I suspect drugs because it is hollywood, but you never know perhaps there are heart issues in her family?

Your friend may have had heart issues though, but then again I dont know if Brittany didnt have them so Im not one to say.
Soon find out though the media will make a big deal about it, sunrise have said about it about 50 times this morning.
