Heath Ledger, as many of you know already, died this past Tuesday afternoon between 1pm and 3pm. He was officially pronounced dead around 3:34pm in his Soho apartment. Toxicity tests still have to come back from testing to tell us if overdose is really what happened to Ledger. I am so saddened by this. Heath Ledger was my favorite actor for the past ten years. I had him first plaster all over my school notebooks and all like... well... a little school girl but as he started to get more mature roles i realized how AMAZING of an actor he was. How humble he stayed and how beautiful of a person he was. No matter what people will say about him and regardless of his situation of how he died... I will always stick by him. I had even written a very fired up letter to John Gibson about his crude remarks about ledger. I'll post it later if its even relevant... but Gibson half heartedly apologized later. It was so half-a$$ed that I, along with hundreds of other fans, didn't even appreciated it. Ledger... He was amazing. I've had friends who weren't even huge fans of him say they felt "weird" that he was dead. It is weird. I am so saddened. Really. Its just weird to not be able to look forward to his daring roles anymore and just... admire him while he is living as a father, son, and actor. My prays go out to his family. I am so so saddened. I know what its like to lose someone close to me. I am so sorry to his friends and family and the acting community. Even though I had no idea how you really truly were, you inspired me to do the things that truly make me happy. I am honored to even be just a fan of yours. You will be missed Heath Andrew Ledger.
Sorry guys its been awhile. I've been swamped with school work... and looking up news on Heath every five minutes on google since other Heath sites have experienced internet meltdown since his death.
P.S. Hey if you live in Perth or the NY area, please respect Heath's family in this time. And for any gossip website please don't put up pictures of his funeral or memorial services. I've seen websites where they have put those up and have to click the "x" on the left hand corner of my mac. Its so sad and disgusting people thrive off of that. Someone that we love is in that box. not breathing. not moving. Not anything. Please respect his family and have Heath leave this earth peacefully.
