Default Actors whom you are surprised are still alive

Whenever a celebrity dies people say how 'surprised' they are although I can't imagine ANYONE being surprised over the deaths of people like James Gandolfini or Philip Seymour Hoffman - just ONE LOOK at them would tell you they were not healthy people.

Who are some celebs you were SURE would be the next to go and yet they just keep on beating the odds?

George Wendt - He looked so fat and unhealthy on CHEERS and just sitting on his ass all day for the show (which was actually part of his character) surely didn't help. I was convinced he would die of a heart attack, but he is mid 60s and still kicking!

Danny Devito

Christopher Lee

DiCaprio. He often plays a character that ends up dead so I just always thought he'd die young. Life imitating art sorta thing.

For some reason I always think John Hurt died 20 years ago, even though he's constantly working.

Was Morgan Freeman ever young? I'm pretty sure he was born an a old man.
