But this week, the 97-year-old passed away after a 40-day battle with pneumonia.
Angie and Louis became very close after she heard his harrowing tale of survival. Zamperini, a former Olympian, spent 47 days lost at sea during World War II. He was then captured by the Japanese and spent 2 years in a POW camp!
If that’s not an AH-Mazing movie plot, we don’t know what is!
Before he died, Louis spoke about his famous friend, calling Miz Jolie:
“A human dynamo!”
He also said he was certain that she would tell his story the right way.
The Zamperini family issued their own statement after losing Louis, which read:
"Having overcome insurmountable odds at every turn in his life, Olympic runner and World War II hero Louis Zamperini has never broken down from a challenge. He recently faced the greatest challenge of his life with a life-threatening case of pneumonia. After a 40-day long battle for his life, he peacefully passed away in the presence of his entire family, leaving behind a legacy that has touched so many lives. His indomitable courage and fighting spirit were never more apparent than in these last days.”
Unbroken, the film based on Louis’s incredible life, is due in theaters on Christmas Day. You better believe we’re gonna see it!
Rest in peace, Louis!

Martha Stewart has needs, y’all! Certain…biological needs, if you catch our drift.
But as badly as this 72-year-old domestic diva needs to get laid, she just can’t find a suitable suitor!
She’s already tried Match.com. Nothin'
She’s shared her desire to find a significant other before. No luck.
Jeeze! What’s a grandma gotta do to find a piece of premium man a**?!?
Martha’s not giving up hope in finding Mr. Right though.
She recently revealed her list of things she’s looking for in a partner. Miz Stewart spilled:
We’re somewhat hesitant to trust a woman who once threw raw meat at her stepdaughter…
But Jean Kasem, the wife of legendary radio host Casey Kasem, is fighting back yet again against her husband’s children, stating in court papers filed this week that Kerri Kasem will take Casey’s fortune and give it ALL to the Church of Scientology!
Jean also claims that Kerri owes her over a million dollars after borrowing it from her father some time ago.
Her mantra is ‘Determined, Dedicated, Disciplined To Be Fit.’
And at 77-years-old, Ernestine Shepherd is living true to those words FOR SURE!
The official Guinness World Record holder for oldest female bodybuilder, Ernestine is a site to be seen! Her body is incredible and she’s trained incredibly hard to get it!
But as impressive as her physique may be, her personal story is far more moving than her muscles.
This is guaranteed to put a smile on your face!
Maybe even one as big as the one on this 78-year-old grandmother’s face, who bravely rode a roller coaster for the first time!
Like, a serious roller coaster! Flips and everything!

This is about as OMG as it gets!
A desk clerk at a Tampa Bay apartment building thought he was being pranked when what looked like a body came crashing down in front of the senior-living complex he works at.
Because it was April Fools' Day, Ronald Benjamin assumed it was a mannequin that someone dropped from the top of the high-rise structure.
He was sadly mistaken though…
