A sad headline

Sometimes you look at a headline and it takes your breath away. That's what I felt when I read this. How's hard to understand what it's like to live in fame.

Heath Ledger Found Dead at Age 28

Heath Ledger, a 2006 Academy Award nominee for his role in Brokeback Mountain, on Tuesday afternoon was found dead at a New York apartment.

The New York Times reports that Ledger was found in his bed by a housekeeper after she went to wake him when his masseuse arrived. She and the masseuse found the actor unconscious, and called the authorities immediately. By some accounts, Ledger was found with sleeping pills around his body. Law enforcement sources at this point do not think it was a crime.

Ledger, 28, had a daughter in 2005 with actress Michelle Williams. The couple lived in Brooklyn together until they separated last year.

    I guess they're saying that it was an accidental overdose or something.

    I was looking forward to seeing Ledger's performance as The Joker in the next Batman movie - they finished production, but it will be kind of weird seeing him on film after his death, kind of like Bruce Lee's son in "The Crow".

    Yeah I know what you mean...and he plays such a dark character as the joker. I'd prefer to remember him in Brokeback Mountain or The Patriot.
