Actor Heath Ledger Dies

Recommended Posts

I had typed out a long rant in response to stonefreelee, but I won't perpetuate this tactless discussion further.

I truly hate to hear this news (same goes for Brad Renfro). My roommate (Tripper) found the news article first, told me, and I didn't believe her for quite some time. Heath was such a gifted individual, and he will be greatly missed.

I'm still very upset about this. I don't know what would be worse: accidental overdose or suicide. Both are horrible in their own manner.

Heath Ledger was a wonderful actor. Mona--I also loved him in 10 Things I Hate About You. I may have even had a crush on him... ;)

It's too bad it had to end this soon. :'(

RIP Heath.

yeah, Chris Farley was "accidental", too...if you pound on the gates of Heaven long enough, someone is gonna open the door...did you feel sorry for Kurt Cobain too? How 'bout brad delp? How about anna nicole smith? Jim Morrison, Jimi, janis? These brilliant people KILLED themselves, whether it was direct or indirect, what's the difference? They put the so called "gun" to their heads....and I'm supposed to feel sorry for them?

You obviously have no clue what i have experienced when it comes to stress, living, dying or whatever...you know NOTHING about what i have gone thru in my life...i feel for the living, not the people who threw in the towel...

You sound angry.

This is troubling news; he was so young. God bless his soul.

Me too...I think I'm actually more stunned now than I was when I first read about it. It hadn't set in then, you know? I guess I thought it was a joke or something...but it's starting to sink in now, and it is really depressing me.

Obviously, you have never had a problem with an addiction. Good for you. But you shouldn't really judge someone until you've walked a mile in their shoes...............Not saying I'm perfect, or that I haven't been too hard on people sometimes, but I'm at least trying.

"and I'm supposed to feel sorry for them?"

Yes. You are. It's called compassion. Whether these incidents are accidents or deliberate, they don't happen because the person in question is enjoying him/herself so much, but because they're suffering in some way.

When you're suffering, I hope there is somebody there for you, stonefreelee, who is a better human being than you are yourself. And I don't give a shit how sanctimonious that sounds, it's true.

Mona got it right. I hope you do fuck off.

OK, good idea Steve--well, I haven't seen that many of his movies but I did think he was a lot of fun in "A Knight's Tale" (plus I liked the music in that one :D ). Also most of my students saw it and fell in love with him, or fell in lust at least!

Well, I really liked him in Casanova. I thought it was a very fun movie because of him. Anyone seen it?

My roommate and I just watched Brokeback and drank wine, had Sobfest 2008. He truly was one of the only gifted actors under 30.

A Knights Tale was what turned me onto him. I love that film...Heath's acting, the music, and Paul Bettany...LOL. And regardless of what you think about the film itself, you can't deny Heath was amazing in Brokeback Mountain. :wub:

:'( I still can't believe it. I keep seeing "Heath Ledger Dead at 28" and it just doesn't seem real to me. I hate all the negative things being said about him already. It just doesn't seem fair really and all these River Phoenix references are lame imho. I love River, but there's no comparison. Everyone knew River had a drug problem. I personally don't believe Heath had an "addiction" problem. It's beyond sad either way. I've liked Heath for a very long time. I own just about all his movies and have been really excited about the new Batman movie. Do any of you remember him that sci-fi show Roar? :lol: That was some cheesy good stuff .. He was great..

R.I.P.

First thing I heard on the radio this morning. How immensely sad.

He was brilliant on Monsters Ball too....I'm lost for words.

No, but you're supposed to respect other posters on this board and their feelings, especially in a situation like this - and not act like a completely tactless ass.

I have no apology to offer. I am sick to death of individuals offing themselves...Haven't we seen enough of this throughout the ages? I'm tired of feeling sorry for these "Phoneix" types...awww, poor baby, couldn't handle being a celebrity...I care about real people who are suffering and who want to LIVE. This "man" had a daughter...how could anyone do that to their own child? What a loser...

Listen you fucking idiot. You don't know what happened, so stop rushing to judgement so soon. I would happily trade a talented man like Heath, over a piece of shit like you any day. Why don't you beat the next talented soul to it, and blow your fucking brains out. You worthless little sack of shit.

I'm still shocked and saddened by this. I watched The Patriot earlier, and I still can't believe that he's dead. I know it's silly in a way to be affected like that, I never met him and don't know him.....but it's just so out of the clear blue. And I still can't help but feel immense sorrow for Michelle Williams and their daughter Matilda.

Now, getting back to my original post. It's a damn shame. Plus, I saw the trailer for "The Dark Knight". He looked like he was taking the role to a whole new level. Too bad he won't be here to revel in the success of this film. I guarantee that his role as The Joker would have sent his status in the Movie biz through the roof.

I don't think he was "acting".

RIP Heath... you will be missed.
