Movies / The Ashton Kutcher curse / Bernie Mac (Guess Who)

Bernie Mac died of complications related to pneumonia in August 2008, though he first announced he was suffering from sarcoidosis (a disease of unknown origin that frequently attacked the actor's lungs) three years previously—the same year he played impossible father-in-law Percy to Ashton Kutcher's Simon in Guess Who.

Even with his health becoming a cause for concern, the stand-up star still managed to pull off high-profile parts, appearing in big-budget summer blockbusters Transformers and Ocean's Thirteen in 2007. By the following summer his condition had deteriorated considerably and, after a week of unsuccessful treatment at Northwestern Memorial Hospital in Chicago, Mac went into cardiac arrest and sadly passed away at the age of 50. Kutcher was one of many former colleagues to show up at Mac's funeral, a huge public event that was attended by as many as 7,000 mourners.
