In 2009 it was reported that Jeff Goldblum had died after falling from a cliff in New Zealand.
Fans of the Jurassic Park actor rushed to pay their condolences until they realized it was a sick joke.
Jeff appeared to laugh off the incident as he said: "No one will miss Jeff Goldblum more than me. He was not only a friend and a mentor, but he was also… me.”
In 2011, it was mistakenly reported that Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson had fallen off a mountain in New Zealand.
The wrestler and Hollywood actor slammed the trolls online as he tweeted: "I would love to meet the person who is starting rumors of my death — to show them how a dead foot feels up their a**."
Twisted pranksters created a Facebook page called 'RIP Morgan Freeman' in 2012.
The actor ended the rumors as he commented on his Facebook page: "Like Mark Twain, I keep reading that I have died. I hope those stories are not true…
“But if they are, I’m happy to report that my afterlife seems identical to my life when I was alive. I did go to Las Vegas to begin work on the film ‘Last Vegas.’ That is anything but a death sentence. – Morgan.”
And, it was falsely reported in 2014 that Home Alone star Macaulay Culkin died in his New York City apartment.
He and his band The Pizza Underground responded by posting two-staged photos that parodied the 1989 comedy Weekend at Bernie's.
Culkin also shared a selfie, adding: "We're on tour you silly people."
