A celebrity's last words become a major part of their legend after they pass on, and sometimes even overshadows the celebrity's career.
But there's one guy who wasn't overshadowed by his last words, partly because people can't decide what his last words actually were. That guy is Walt Disney, and his last words have been the subject of many arguments over the years.
When Kurt Russell went on Jimmy Kimmel Live back in 2007 and declared his name was the last thing Walt Disney ever said he got some Disney historians riled up, including one who went to great lengths to disprove the myth.
Leading Disney historian Jim Korkis did an exhaustive amount of research to uncover what Walt actually “said” before he died, words written on paper since Walt was dying of lung cancer and couldn't speak, and the list surprisingly includes the words “Kirt (sp) Russell”.
