“Reports that Jeff Goldblum has passed away are completely untrue,” said the actor’s publicist in a statement Thursday night. “He is fine and in Los Angeles.”
Whoever decided to start this rumor is a sick disgusting person!
False rumours that Jeff Goldblum and Harrison Ford both died while filming in New Zealand are still making the rounds. An Australian entertainment TV reporter when to air with the "news" of Goldblum's death.
(It turns out the same cliff that had "claimed" Goldblum's life was also responsible for the earlier "deaths" of Tom Hanks and Tom Cruise. See Snopes.com for the full history of this internet-spread cut-and-paste obit.)
We of course know that Jeff is currently filming "Morning Glory" which is being shot in NYC - NOT New Zealand!
I just want to say that I hope Jeff has a very long wonderful life and I hope people stop perpetuating this pathetic rumor...
Long Live Jeff!
Fro more information on the hoax...
