R.I.P Heath.

R. I. P Heath Ledger
04/04/79 - 22/01/08

I am so sad to hear the news about Australian born, Hollywood actor. What a great loss to the entertainment world. I feel especially sorry for Michelle Williams and his toddler daughter, Matilda (2.)

What a devastating tragedy. 28 years old; so young...too young.

It's really terrible to see how stressful and pressurised being in the public eye can be. A few months ago he admitted to needing sleeping pills and how they weren't working as well as he had hoped. I guess he took one too many.

I remember developing a bit of a crush on him in 1999 when he starred in "10 Things I hate about you." I liked the bad boy with a soft side character.

He really was starting to rise as a shining star in Hollywood and it just seems surreal that his life ended so soon.

His family: Dad (Kim), Mom (Sally) and sister (Kate) are devastated by the news and are saying the drug overdose is accidental.

Michelle Williams and daughter Matilda were in Sweden when the news broke. She is obviously devastated! I just can't imagine the pain and the loss they must feel.

What's sad is that people are going to always think that it was suicide when it really doesn't appear to have been that!

The sleeping pills he was taking was because of his role as The Joker in the new Batman movie, whic is to be released at the end of the year.
