Heath Ledger Dead At 28

I can't say I have ever been a real 'fan' of Aussie born actor Heath Ledger, but when I turned the TV on this morning to hear his death announced on the news I was very shocked - he was only 28, far to young to die.
From the way the reporters described the 'scene' with pill bottles strew around the room, his naked body found in bed, they suggest suicide. His family disagrees saying he was not that kind of person. Whatever the reason for his death, it is very sad - especially for his 2 year old daughter Matilda. Such a shame, such a waste of life....

.... Just another day ....

I have to say this to all of you who are discounting Heath Legder as cut rate actor, a b-lister or a mediocre actor....as though he isn't worth grieving for because he supposedly isn't on the level of a great actor lost. Jeez give me a break. It's a tragic loss to hell with the level of his acting.
I found he was an actor who by choice didn't go for the Hollywood fluff and money scene. He struck me as a very sensitive, real, intelligent man who was well on the path of a great actor. I wasn't aware of his work until Brokeback Mountain. I think he handled that role as good as the likes of Olivier or any great actor in history. It was very well thought out and sincere. For those who are all fixated on the gay content of his role; go look at yourself and perhaps your latent tendencies.
I was proud of Heath for taking on challenging roles. He dared to go against the status quo and what the world expected of him; for that he deserves a great deal of admiration. I can't help feeling some sort of kinship with him being a fellow Aries. I know he was a deep thinking sensitive soul who cared about integrity, honor, and really stretching his ability. I honor him for staying on the path of the different drummer and enduring what that can bring. I offer one final resounding Bravo !! Heath. I wish peace in his soul and in the hearts of all who cared for him.

As a fellow Aussie, I am very proud of all that Heath acheived. I have seen all his movies and always thought he was a very talented actor. As you said Baleboosteh, it is a real shame and such a waste of a beautiful young life.

Ledger was a talented actor and his death is startling. His death can at about the same time that we in america were marking the anniversary of the landmark case Roe v. Wade that made abortion legal in all states.

While the press has used up a lot of ink on the death of an adult, not much was said about the deaths of millions of pre-birth babies.

I'm sure glad Americans know what's important.
