    I was just reading about the Oscars and was saddened by the thought of seeing Heath Ledger in the Oscar montage for stars that have passed away.

    SPOT on ! that is why i think pinsky was wrong. now... CNN broke in and said TWO types of pills were found... RX and OTC... so that would make more sense with the suicide. but at the time they were just saying otc.

    I know Johnny Depp has or had a stake in the Viper Room. He and River started it together.

    I guess too much of anything is not good. But isn't benadryl usually used to counteract some overdoses? Which is kind of interesting in itself. Hmmmm.

    Depends how deep he had to go to bring that out of himself, I guess. We'll never know, I reckon. I'll have to view the trailers some more to see how much they show of the character.

    he would have to be like, a really mentally unstable person to not be able to separate self from character. THAT i agree with Dr. Drew Pinskey on DK!! That is what i am getting at!!

    What a tragedy.

    Natalie Merchant has a beautiful song on her 1995 album "Tigerlily" that she wrote about the death of River Phoenix and the media frenzy that followed. I believe they were friends. I listened to that song for years before I finally realized it was about River Phoenix. Its definitely worth a listen if you are not familiar with it. Its called "River". Here are the lyrics...

    River

    Young & strong Hollywood son
    In the early morning light
    This star fell down
    On Sunset Boulevard

    Young & strong beautiful one
    One that we embraced so close
    Is gone
    Was torn away

    Let the youth of America mourn
    Include him in their prayers
    Let his image linger on
    Repeat it everywhere

    With candles with flowers
    He was one of ours
    One of ours

    Why don't you let him be?
    He's gone
    We know
    Give his mother & father peace
    Your vulture's candor
    Your casual slander
    Will murder his memory
    He's gone
    We know
    And it's nothing but a tragedy

    Lay to rest your soul and body
    Lay beside your name
    Lay to rest your rage
    Your hunger and amazing grace

    With candles, with flowers
    You were one of ours
    One of ours

    I saw cameras expose your life
    I heard rumors explode with lies
    I saw children with tears
    Cry and crowd around the sight
    Of where you had collapsed that day
    Where your last breath & word
    Had been sighed
    Where your heart had burst
    Where you had died

    I saw how they were lost in grieving
    All half-believing you were gone
    The loss and pain of it
    Crime and the shame of it
    You were gone
    It was such a nightmare raving,
    "how could we save him
    From himself?"

    Deal with your demons or they will deal with you...I think actors and actresses have a constant need for approval but at the same time, deal with constant rejection/competition. It can be a lethal combination. Get successful and you are surrounded by yes-men and women on every side.

    I am just sad to see another talented young person with a whole life ahead of them, lose it. What a waste.

    On TMZ, I just saw a clip of Heath being brought out in a bag on a gurney. He looks so tiny, like a child.

    That means he was a good actor! The Joker escaped from Arkham Asylum, a place where the criminally insane were locked up. He WAS distrubing and psychotic. I think the character was spot on.

    Heath Ledger recently gave an interview to WJW FOX in Cleveland where he said, "I feel good about dying because I feel alive through her." He was talking about his young daughter Matilda.

    Man, I am so sad - I remembering marveling at his acting job in Brokeback Mountain. He had that special something that distinguishes a REALLY GOOD actor.

    Reading other places, they seem to think it was suicide. Sleeping pills by his side?

    Sad to not see your daughter grow up.

    So another one bites the dust--I've never seen this actor in anything he's done--I had heard the name before but I always thought they said his name was KEITH Ledger and not HEATH Ledger--I didn't know he was Australian either--just say No to drugs I guess

    I read alot about stars and I didn't know he had addictions.

    I think the dude just wanted a real good sleep and just accidentally OD'd.

    I was just about to say, I'll bet he was sick or something and mixed something like
    Ambien and OTC sleeping aids to get some rest. My daughter said she heard that he had just flown in from London in the last day or two, also, and was probably incredibly jet-lagged and if he was sick, probably just wanted to rest. Such a tragedy....
