Someone Very Close To Angelina Jolie’s Heart Has Passed Away…

So sad!

We first introduced you to Louis Zamperini last year. His inspirational true-life story is being turned into a movie, thanks to Angelina Jolie who is directing and producing the project!

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!

Shawn Kuykendall never wanted to take it slow, so he led an amazingly active and fulfilling life — one that was cut way too short.

He played soccer at American University, and played so well that he landed spots with two Major League Soccer teams, including D.C. United. He followed that up as a coach, one that brought the sport to youth and helped them learn.

Then, sadly, he took on his biggest challenge:

Latest Social Media Trend From Australia Involves Drinking Beer From Toilet??

Neknominating: Latest social media trend from Australia involves dangerous drinking stunts!

There's a dangerous new social media trend making its way across Australia: Neknominating.

It's much simpler than it sounds.

To neck a pint basically means to chug a glass of beer. Then to nominate means that upon finishing your beer, you nominate which of your friends has to chug next.

The dangerous part is that each person attempts to outdo the last person by chugging their pint in a more ridiculous place or manner.

Like drinking beer out of a toilet bowl! Disgusting! Some players of the game have even begun chugging pints while driving!!

We really hope this trend dies before a person does!

Check out a video about the whole trend AFTER THE JUMP!!
