I completley forgot about this thread- Amacinom I love that Stand By Me video, he looks so amazing, I love it when he gives Gordie some 'skin'

It makes me so sad that someone who was brimming with talent and was such an amazing person had to be stupid as to destroy his life. He was special from the start it such a pathetic waste. I saw The thing called Love recently (not one of his best films) but he enchanted me eitherway

Just thinking about River gives me this unbelievable feeling. It's like fascination and sadness and anger all at once.
But when I look at his picture I just wanna cry.
RIP xxx

River had a love and hate relationship with his teen idol status. Posing on the cover of seventeen magazine wasn't him.

^ I love those! Thanks you! xx

Did River have a cameo in Dazed and Confused? I'm 100% sure I saw him.

This Bruce Webber shoot is has some of the most iconic 90's images for me. The free-spiritedness, the risk, the creativity, the attitude and finally style. .

To think... he was just getting started.

They had a close friendship and these last three really reflect that.

TRANSCRIPT:
for those of you having a hard time making out the conversation:

RP: .for me its just the memory of growing up with Batman and, eh, one of the very first things I saw I guess and eh, Im interested to see it, and I like Keaton. Thanks a lot.

Interviewer: River, we just saw you in Indiana Jones how did you feel about playing the young one?

RP: playing the young one.. it was a lot of good fun

Interviewer: How was it working with sean connery?

RP: Well, I really wanted a chance to work on one movie with Sean Connery and I love Connery and it was great. You know; Ford was great and Spielberg was great

Interviewer: What are your expectations for Batman

RP: My expectations are very simple; I hope I walk out of this place and have enjoyed seeing it, hoping it follows on with great memories I do have of a really good show

Interviewer: Are you a fan of the Batman tv series?

RP: Yes. I grew up with it you know? One of the only shows I ever watched so..

Interviewer: Who are your favourite characters? Whats your favourite character?

RP: I like em all, I gotta go..

On another note, I've always found it interesting that Kurt Cobain disliked the young Hollywood scene that worshiped him so much ( he had a famous run in with Keanu, apparently, and called him a faker) and yet Cobain dedicated a performance of " Jesus Don't Want Me For A Sunbeam" to River shortly after River's death ( and only a few months before Cobains, rip.)

I dunno, but to me this has always kinda suggested that River really wasn't like the rest of Hollywood. I doubt Cobain would have dedicated a preformance to him if he had been, especially since the dedication happened right towards the end of Nivana ( last tour) and Kurt was pretty jaded by then...

I loved him when I was a teen, I was so sad when he died I still have the cut outs from magazines somewhere. All my teen idols ended up dead.

Hope you all enjoy!
