Stephen Rivers passes away at age 55

By Roger Friedman

HollywoodNews.com: I am so sorry to read about the passing of my friend, Stephen Rivers. He was 55 and died after a long bout with prostate cancer.

So much of what’s involved in the dying of a friend and contemporary is wrapped up in when you met them. I met Stpehen in 1982 when we both worked for Jane Fonda on the 20th Century Fox lot. I was a script reader. Stephen was the in-house pr for Jane’s film company, IPC Films. He also worked for Tom Hayden that summer on his failed bid for a seat the California State Assembly.

Over the years, Stephen and I had much common as he worked for Oliver Stone, Kevin Costner, and a host of other tough clients. He represented Mike Ovitz and worked at Creative Artists Agency during a particularly difficult time there. He started his own pr firm in 1994, and I remember going down to Santa Monica to see his office and have lunch and chew over old times.
