Some of the most talented stars have the most tragic stories.

Most recently that of British singer Amy Winehouse who passed away on July 23, 2011. While news of this tragic death isn't the first time a celebrity's passing has caught many off guard, it sadly won't be the last.

Celebuzz remembers all of the other Hollywood stars who met an untimely end, and the impact their loss made on the world.

While there are the more obvious ones such as Michael Jackson and Anna Nicole Smith, let's not forget about stars such as actress Natasha Richardson's tragic skiing accident and the upsetting tales of DJ AM and Heath Ledger.

Take a look through the gallery to see other stars who were simply gone too soon.

    MCA died young but not before his time..he shouldn't be put in this list because it makes it sound like he accomplished nothing when he has been in music for decades.

    What? Since when does anyone worship Michelle Williams? She's barely ever even in the news. Stop talking a bunch of nonsense woman.

    all of the deaths were because drugs and/or alcohol were abused. sad that they died...but it was in their hands. this should open some peoples eyes and maybe they will realize that they are not invincible. these were not freak accidents like a plane crash or aliens. R.I.P everyone and hopefully you are all in a better place

    You know anyone can SAY whatever they want about someone else, that doesn't necessarily make it true.

    I have to agree with you. She was very misunderstood, and that's sad...

    Because a role was so called "dark" he abused prescription drugs? Something wrong with that picture, I did like Heath in several movies though. I do wish they would stop worshipping Michelle Williams like some Virgin Mary because she happened to have had his baby. That's happened before. No need to see Michelle in celeb news everyyy singleee dayyy even if only for her haircut because she had Heath's baby. She is human. Plenty of women, sadly, are pregnant when they lose their spouse/partner. Stop over playing the Michelle business,,she's no one to worship.

    Anna's nanny told the Police that Anna UNDERFED her daughter Dannielyn because she wanted "sexy" baby. Larry Birkhead said Anna gave her son drugs because she didn't want him to go around and experiment with his friends!! People should not glorify woman who underfed her baby and gav e her son drugs. Anna aka Vickie Hogan died as a result of her debauchery. Dannielyn has better, safer life since her twisted, sick mother died.

    Tragic. The only consolation is she is with her son Daniel, but so so sad that she is not here for her daughter Danilynn.

    * This is EXACTLY why I do not take it too far when "bashing" celebs I don't like very much. You NEVER know when they'll be gone! Every hater of hers has to be crawling in their own skin by now. Will miss her, she was so misunderstood...* ; -}
