Death is inevitable, no matter how hard we try.

And even though our celebrities look untouchable, they are poised to have a date with The Grim Reaper at some point in their lives. Just like us!

So don’t let their massive fortunes convince you otherwise. There’s no amount of splurging and spending of cash that can buy you the fountain of youth, or the pill of immortality!

What a bummer….

That being said, despite the new year, let’s take a look at some of the most iconic celebrities that took their final bow in 2018
