R.I.P. Legend. I had the privilege of interviewing Leslie Jordan in 2014 and every time I’d run into him in LA after that he’d remembered me and say “Would you just shut up! I just want to look at you !” and we’d sit in silence until we both burst out into laughter. 67 years old and gone way to soon! The most hilarious, genuine, and unapologetic person you’d ever meet. There will never be another Leslie Jordan
I was with him once at the West Hollywood Starbucks and all of the sudden he says “Watch this!” and pretended dropping things over and over so he could watch all the “boys” bend over
Leslie Jordan, the beloved actor and comedian has died.Law enforcement sources tell TMZ Jordan was driving in Hollywood Monday morning when it’s suspected he suffered some sort of medical emergency and crashed his BMW into the side of a building.

The last time we saw Leslie out in public was pretty recently … our photogs got him just last month, gauging his reaction to Elton John and Britney Spears releasing a new song together.Leslie was 67.RIP
My heart is broken. Leslie Jordan was one of the funniest people I ever had the pleasure of working with. Everyone who ever met him, loved him. There will never be anyone like him. A unique talent with an enormous, caring heart. You will be missed, my dear friend. 😔❤️ pic.twitter.com/RNKSamoES0
