Brad Renfro Dead at 25...

RIP


Brad Renfro Dies
Posted Jan 15th 2008 6:34PM by TMZ Staff

TMZ has learned actor Brad Renfro is dead.

The 25-year-old actor was found dead at his Los Angeles home this morning. The cause of death has not been determined, however, Renfro had a history of drug abuse.

Sources tell us Renfro, who had starring roles in "The Client" and "Apt Pupil" had been working valiantly to stay clean, especially since this summer. Renfro had been convicted of several drug offenses, including attempted heroin possession.

Renfro had been filming a movie with Winona Ryder and Billy Bob Thornton. The movie, "The Informers," just wrapped.

Renfro has had a rough time personally since moving from Tennessee to Los Angeles. His parents split, and we're told he did not have real guidance from adults as he tried navigating the treacherous movie industry.

Hahahahahhahahahaha to Ghost World 2!

Very sad - he was a good actor - though Apt Pupil was horribly over-rated. I think I read somewhere he was considered for the John Connor role in Terminator 3...

Sure was

It's a shame that someone so young and talented had their life end just like that

Did I hear right, did anyone else hear this? That Brad had had a tattoo on his back a day or two before he died that said something like (Fu*k you Fu*kers)?


WOW
