Anthony Perkins was a film and stage actor who will always be remembered for his unforgettable turn as Norman Bates in Alfred Hitchcock's Psycho. He had a productive career that spanned nearly 40 years.
Oddly, Perkins only discovered he was HIV positive in 1990 after a National Enquirer article exposed that he had AIDS, leading him to get tested. He had suspected that he might be HIV positive, but chose to ignore it for fear of what it might do to his career. He died two years later from AIDS-related complications.
