The great Joan Fontaine has passed away. The legendary actress was also one of my all-time favorite performers. This is a tragic loss. R.I.P. Joan Fontaine!

Confirmed to be a hoax ..

 

On Sunday (December 15) the actress' reps officially confirmed that Joan Fontaine is not dead. ?She joins the long list of celebrities who have been victimized by this hoax. She's still alive and well, stop believing what you see on the Internet,? they said.

Well, there are the obvious acting siblings -- Jane Fonda turns 76 on Saturday, while brother Peter will be 74 in February.

This means the hoax was a hoax. Damn them!

 

I'm sorry, Joan.

What a terrible week of loss. Still mourning Eleanor Parker and now to lose two more greats....

 

With her sister Olivia still alive at 97, before today that had to be the longest surviving pair of actor or actress siblings in Hollywood history. Is any other pair of siblings even within 20 years of them in combined ages?

 

Shirley MacLaine and Warren Beatty

I've often wondered what was going through Joan Fontaine's mind at this moment after winning her Oscar. She looks dejected. Thinking of her sister, who just lost out to her?

Olivia has released a statement according to NBC News:

 

"I was shocked and saddened to learn of the passing of my sister, Joan Fontaine. My niece, Deborah, and I appreciate the many kind expressions of sympathy that we have received."

My small town local newspaper put all three obits (from AP) on the

same page. O'Toole's was on the top of the page and had the most

columns. Fontaine's was below his and was about one-third as

long. Well, poor old Billy Jack was below hers and was the smallest

of the three. I may make a donation to the Freedom School.

>I read that statement last night from Olivia. That's why I can't figure out why anyone would have believed it was a hoax.

 

Yesterday afternoon (Sunday) before the news broke in the media, there were reports on Facebook that Fontaine had died. It was quickly called a hoax by her publicist and that's why when the news broke for real, many thought it was hoax.

 

Scott Feinberg of the Hollywood Reporter broke the story about 4:30 pm PST after conferring with Fontaine's family.

 

It may have been been called a hoax originally to give her daughter time to contact the rest of the family and make some arrangements before talking to Feinberg. Once the Reporter published the obituary, the rest of the media picked up the story for real.

 

Just a thought.
