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.

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.

Was it something she ate? Pretty much!

Winona Ryder is making a grand return to the spotlight, and she's sharing some tricks of the trade she's learned along the way.

For one: Just say no to nibbling scenes. While filming the lesser-known 1990 teen comedy Welcome Home, Roxy Carmichael, Ryder, then 19, says she learned this the hard way.

"There's a scene in my bedroom where I start eating Almond Roca," Ryder, 41, tells PEOPLE while promoting her new film The Iceman in New York City. "I was so young. It was before I knew the tricks of moviemaking, and I didn't know you shoot a lot of different angles."

Some things you totally see coming – that Bill Murray would be a great FDR in Hyde Park on Hudson, for instance. Or that Ben Affleck's Argo, about rescuing American embassy workers in Iran, would somehow nail the Hollywood satire/nail-biting escape genre. (Oh, who are we kidding? It created the Hollywood satire/nail-biting escape genre – and it's getting Oscar buzz to boot.)

Still, some things out of the Toronto International Film Festival continue to surprise, even now that the show's over.

Here are a few:
