Hollywood lost two of its own this weekend: Peter O’Toole passed away at age 81 in London, and Joan Fontaine died at age 96. Between the two of them, the stars were nominated for eleven Academy Awards, with Peter being the most-nominated actor to have never won an Oscar.

OK! News: Ryan Gosling shares how Peter O’Toole romanced his sister at an Oscars event.


Peter was known for his outrageous, fun personality. Aside from his iconic movies roles (such as Lawrence of Arabia and Goodbye, Mr. Chips), he was also one hell of a talk-show guest. Watch this clip of him arriving on a camel to chat with David Letterman… and then see what the camel does with a beer can!

Joan, meanwhile, was one of Hitchcock’s legendary ladies. She won an Oscar for her lead role in Suspicion. Watch the trailer here!

OK! News: Read the details of Paul Walker’s memorial service.
