handsome boy that everyone thinks can be different , I think that River Phoenix is the
movie star who is just the right man who sparkled in Hollywood even if he doesnít exist in
this world and there are a large number of actors and they appear in the future. Why he is
famous is because of his too early death and because he played brilliant roles in many
movies for his short life. When I saw his movie for the first time, Iíve got crush on him.

At first, his background is interesting. He was born on August 23, 1970 in a small house
in Oregon. He was firstborn child of five children. During his childhood, his parents

disturbing news about the leader. Since then, as they werenít protected by the church any
more and were in a desperate struggle to make ends meet, River, at age five, often sang
and played music in the streets to earn the money.

In the early morning of October 31, 1993, River took a lethal dose of a mix of drugs and
died on the sidewalk outside. He was only 23 years old.
