At least he got to live a very full life!
It’s with heavy hearts that we report Peter O’Toole has passed away.
The Lawrence of Arabia legend went in his sleep on Saturday night at a London hospital after having been sick for awhile.
His daughter Kate’s statement read:
"His family are very appreciative and completely overwhelmed by the outpouring of real love and affection being expressed towards him, and to us, during this unhappy time. Thank you all, from the bottom of our hearts. In due course there will be a memorial filled with song and good cheer, as he would have wished."
Just last year, Peter retired from acting, after having received the most Oscar noms without winning. They gave him an award in 2003 to make up for it though!
Our thoughts and prayers are with Peter’s friends and family.
He will be missed!
