A belated RIP to Heath Ledger

Yeah, I know he died a while ago, but I was surfing Wikipedia the other day and came across his name. I started thinking about how sad it was; he was a charming, handsome, damned promising actor…and what a stupid way to die! What a waste.

According to Wiki the toxology report states: “Mr. Heath Ledger died as the result of acute intoxication by the combined effects of oxycodone, hydrocodone, diazepam, temazepam, alprazolam and doxylamine”

Good grief…is life as a movie star so unbearable? I admit to needing a beer every now and then (ok, more often than that), but can life be THAT hard to stand when you really have everything and such a promising future? Well, I guess it shows once again that money isn’t everything.

Anyway, I “miss” the guy, in that I always liked his movies. If you haven’t seen “A Knight’s Tale” be sure to check it out. OK, enough of that for now.

Oh wait…it looks like Mary-Kate Olsen was initially suspected of providing some of the drugs that killed him. I KNEW IT! The Olsen twins are evil!

    I liked ” A Knight’ s Tale ” much to my friends’ chagrin. And he was excellent as the Joker in ” The Dark Knight “.

  • I really liked Knight’s Tale too. It was an off-the-wall sleeper that was just plain fun, nothing heavy duty, no big MESSAGE…just goofy, light-hearted, entertainment…and you must admit you got a tear in your eye when he reunited with his father…go on, admit it 🙂

  • It’s not life what’s hard for an actor. It’s being themselves. Many actors I’ve known have issues. In fact, most actors attitude towards life can be resumed with this sentence:
    – “Noticemenoticemeiamhereheylistentomelistentome”

    Leaving aside the apparent mess of his real life, I first noticed Heath in Brokeback Mountain. I was stunned by that performance because all he had done before was light action/comedy fare. In Brokeback Mountain he was able to communicate the deep well of emotion that lay behind a very reticent man – a man who was very much the product of his time and place. For anyone who wants to see what great acting is all about, I recommend it.
