It's easy to think of famous people as somehow immortal, but beneath the fame and the glamour, they're just as human as the rest of us. They might live in a different world than most, but when the time comes, they all go to the same place as everybody else. In homage to these icons of music, film, and sport, Bored Panda has compiled this list of the famous last photos taken of many of the most beloved people who have ever lived. Including the infamous 27 club members - a "club" of musicians and actors who all have died aged 27. Kurt Cobain, Jimi Hendrix, and Amy Winehouse are just a couple of them. Since there's no scientific proof of increased death risk when reaching 27, it seems almost like some black magic.

From Hollywood actors and rock stars to ex-presidents and sporting heroes, these last photos of celebrities below serve to remind us that life is short and death is inevitable, so make the most of it while you can. And though most of these people's legacies will carry on for decades, no one is safe of being forgotten.

Scroll through our list of last celebrity photos below.

Freddie Mercury, 45, 1946-1991

This is one of the last photos of the lead singer of Queen, taken in 1991. Until the very end, Freddie denied rumours about having AIDS, preferring to avoid the inevitable media circus and concentrate on his career as best he could. The day before his death he released the following statement : "Following the enormous conjecture in the press over the last two weeks, I wish to confirm that I have been tested HIV positive and have AIDS. I felt it correct to keep this information private to date to protect the privacy of those around me. However, the time has come now for my friends and fans around the world to know the truth and I hope that everyone will join with me, my doctors and all those worldwide in the fight against this terrible disease. My privacy has always been very special to me and I am famous for my lack of interviews. Please understand this policy will continue." Less than 24 hours later he died from bronchopneumonia, that was brought on by having AIDS. (Source: Ultimate Classic Rock)

Nikola Tesla, 86, 1856 - 1943

This is the last known photo of Nicola Tesla. On 7th January 1943, Tesla died alone in the New Yorker Hotel. The inventor, physicist, and futurist was best known for his contributions to the design of the modern alternating current (AC) electricity supply system. By the end of his brilliant and tortured life, he was penniless and had become a vegetarian living on only milk, bread, honey, and vegetable juices. Tesla spent days in a park surrounded by the creatures that mattered most to him—pigeons—and his sleepless nights working over mathematical equations and scientific problems in his head.

David Bowie, 69, 1947-2016

The December 7th 2015 premiere of his musical, 'Lazarus,' at the Theatre Workshop in New York would turn out to be David Bowie's final public appearance. Bowie had been battling liver cancer for over a year, and by this late stage was aware that it was terminal. His final album 'Blackstar' was full of references to death and he had appeared to have accepted and come to terms with his own mortality, with a humour and grace that many of us can only hope to emulate.

This photo of a smiling and seemingly happy Chester Bennington was taken just days prior to his passing. On July 20, 2017, Bennington was found dead at his home in California, having committed suicide by hanging. Bennington had always been open about his struggles with addiction and depression, but those close to him were shocked by his suicide. The day after Cornell's memorial, Bennington tweeted that he was "feeling very creative" and had written six new songs. Around the same time, he told a friend, Rene Mata, "We have to stick together, and we have so much to live for." Bennington was just 41 years old at the time of his death.  (Source: Rolling Stone)

This photo of James Dean at a gas station was taken the day that he died. Dean was a keen driver and loved race cars. He died when he crashed the Porsche in this photo, swerving to avoid an oncoming car, on September 30, 1955. Curiously, when Dean introduced himself to British actor Alec Guinness during an encounter in Hollywood, he asked him to take a look at the car. Guinness thought the car appeared "sinister" and told Dean: "If you get in that car, you will be found dead in it by this time next week." This happened on September 23, 1955, seven days before Dean's death. (Source: Wikipedia.org)

This photo of Amy Winehouse was taken in London on July 12th, 2011. She died at her home on July 23rd 2011, with the coroner's inquest reaching a verdict of accidental alcohol poisoning. Winehouse's blood alcohol content was more than five times the legal drink-drive limit, with the unintended consequences of such potentially fatal levels being her sudden death. Her brother, Alex Winehouse, revealed her battles with eating disorders. "She suffered from bulimia very badly. That's not, like, a revelation – you knew just by looking at her… She would have died eventually, the way she was going, but what really killed her was the bulimia… I think that it left her weaker and more susceptible. Had she not had an eating disorder, she would have been physically stronger." (Source: Wikipedia.org)

Was lucky enough to see him in concert, in an intimate concert, at a vineyard in Australia, and again, in concert at a bigger arena. Having never listened to his work before, I was truly naive to his work. And I can tell you - he was *truly* charasmatic. Only he, could make "I'm your man" sound sexy. "Ah, but a man never got a woman back Not by begging on his knees Or I'd crawl to you baby and I'd fall at your feet And I'd howl at your beauty like a dog in heat" A divine talent, truly missed. Am so glad I was lucky enough to become a fan.

Brittany Murphy, 32, 1977 - 2009

This photo of Brittany Murphy shows her walking the red carpet on December 3rd, 2009 in what was her last public appearance. Soon after, on December 20th, she died of a cardiac arrest after collapsing in her bathroom, with causes believed to be acute pneumonia and severe anaemia as well as multiple drug intoxication. Murphy had been taking a range of over-the-counter and prescription medications, with the most likely reason being to treat a cold or respiratory infection. All of the drugs were legal and the death was ruled to be an accident. (Source: Wikipedia.org)
