The Fault in Our Movies: See 12 of the Most Beautiful People Dying Young on Film

Originally posted 06/03/2014 11:15AM

According to author John Green, his acclaimed young-adult novel The Fault in Our Stars was intended as a revision of the classic cancer-story tropes of saintly sufferers and soft-lit deaths.

But there's one convention the upcoming film adaptation doesn't subvert – like many of their cinematic predecessors, Shailene Woodley and Ansel Elgort spend their last months positively glowing.

It's yet another reminder that, in the movies, dying is often the best makeover.

In anticipation of the opening of the film adaptation of the book, here's a brief history of beautiful people in movies who left us too soon.

It's one way to make a fashion statement.

Lake Bell posed nude for the Fall Fashion issue of New York magazine (on sale Monday), with ink as her only accessory.

The oversized monochromatic rose was designed by her tattoo-artist husband Scott Campbell. The pair were wed in June in New Orleans.

But Bell is making waves for reasons beyond the steamy cover. Her new film, In a World, which she wrote, directed and starred in, is getting rave reviews. Bell also won the prestigious U.S. Dramatic Waldo Salt Screenwriting Award for the film at the Sundance Film Festival in January.

Campbell Scott will be walking down the aisle this summer, he tells PEOPLE. Scott got engaged to stage actress Kathleen McElfresh in November.

NEW SHOWSWatch It: Shark (CBS, 10 p.m. ET) James Woods, who is starting to look like the better-groomed twin of Oscar winner Geoffrey Rush, gives a performance that's smooth, playful and big – on a different scale than you'll see in most dramatic series. He plays a hotshot defense attorney who suffers a moral crisis and decides to devote his formidable cunning to doing good by taking a job with the L.A. district attorney's office. I actually wish he'd stayed on the dark side, quashing considerations of decency under his shoe like a stale marshmallow. But an actor this good having a time this good is worth at least a nibble.
