What Makes Hollywood Great? A Dozen of Our Favorite Stars Offer Their Opinions

When it comes to Hollywood celebrities, we put Jim Henson near the top of the list.

After all, he introduced the world to Kermit the Frog in 1955, and long after Henson’s death (tragically in 1990, at the age of 53), the affable, kind, Muppet amphibian continued to emulate Henson’s spirit as he led a gaggle of googly-eyed talking puppets and helped make the world a happier place.

Here’s our favorite: “Life is like a movie. Write your own ending.”
