Brad Renfro is dead

Thank you, Gawker, for stealing away my generation's childhood crush this morning. Brad died of what is speculated to have been a drug overdose, although they're not saying yet.

Remember Tom & Huck, the movie that changed your life back in 1995?

:(

I had *such* a crush (for years!) on Brad Renfro after seeing that movie! I watched it so many times. What terrible news.

I don't have a crush on him (not tall enough) but it's sad news. I saw him in all the stuff we all know about and I'm sad. Tremendous talent. Gone.

Wow! "Childhood crush" I am incredibly old. I was in Highschool when he was born. Still it is sad to see "kids" that die so young. I can't imagine. I love life so much.

Oh, my. I'm old. I know him as "that kid in Apt Pupil." Very sad.

It's bothering me, too. He was so young.
