  2. RIP Captain America

    Apparently he already knew what it's like to be dead. According to John Lennon.

    Goodfellas actress Illeana Douglas tweeted a tribute to Fonda, and to the film - which she said "depicted the rise of hippie culture, condemned the establishment, and celebrated freedom".
    Almost 30 years later he was nominated for another Oscar - this time, in the Best Actor category for his 1997 film Ulee's Gold.

    Later in life he put his efforts into environmentalism, and in 2012 he co-produced The Big Fix - a film about the explosion of the BP oil rig Deepwater Horizon.

    "While we mourn the loss of this sweet and gracious man, we also wish for all to celebrate his indomitable spirit and love of life," the family's statement said.

    "In honour of Peter, please raise a glass to freedom."

  7. If you can find Lennon's audio interview where he explains it, it's pretty funny. He said something along the lines of, "He (Fonda) kept whispering in my ear, 'I know what it's like to be dead', and I'm like, "Shut up. I don't give a fuck".
