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.
Ledger's Eerily Prophetic Interview , body being removed and more...

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 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....
