My dreams have been killed.



When I was little (and this movie came out in 1995, so I was 9) I was obsessed with Brad Renfro. Who is he? I don't know, he just played Huck in the legendary film Tom and Huck. He was the lead, next to legendary actor Jonathan Taylor Thomas (JTT if you're nasty.)

I don't know why I liked him... I just did. He was cute. "Sexy", if I knew what sexy was. I would spend my parent's money on Bop Magazine and Teen Beat and hang posters of him on my walls. I was going to marry him.

Then he fell of the face of the Earth. According to imdb he was in a bunch of movies that were nothing. And in an episode of Law and Order: Criminal Intent, but he was a nobody.

Well, he died today.

He was found dead on a floor. He had a drug problem. He was a child star, and then he had a drug problem while he tried to form an acting career. Why does that happen to so many child stars? Why does fame at such an early age have to kill people? Why did fame at an early age have to kill my future husband?

You know who else it killed like a month ago? Chrissy from Now and Then. (Yes, that's a Canadian gossip site.) That movie also came out in 1995. I feel young.

I'm glad I wasn't a child star. I would probably be approaching my death right now. You would all be sad. So so sad.

Coming up on "Barrett All": Tuesday fun day, and "You're my friends, because you're white."

He was really good in that Law & Order SVU episode.

I always got him and Edward Furlong confused. Not anymore!
