Heath Ledger Dead

God, please tell me this isn't true! O__O

My sister just called me with the news and I swear at first she'd said "Keith Richards is dead."

Wow. Just. Wow.

ETA: OMG, it was Mary-Kate Olsen's apartment?!. No, it wasn't.

All over the news, CNN, etc.

Wow.

I'm beyond shocked. I never would have thought... of all people. God, I wonder what happened? :(

It's true. It's on CNN and MSN.com, and I flipped over to the local news and it was on there too.

I just...there aren't any words I can think to say. I'm so freaking shocked.

No! He was so young and SO talented. Sigh, makes me remember when River Phoenix died, so much lost potential in both cases. Batman won't be the same

I totally thought of River. So horribly sad. :-( I was really looking forward to Batman and now it's going to be very strange.

If it were Keith Richards... it would still be sad, but there would also be the sense of, "Tell me again how he didn't die thirty years ago?" This is just unbelievable.

I didn't believe it when my friend called me but then when I had trouble getting into ONTD to see and all of LJ was being slow, I figured it must be true. This is just so incredibly sad, I really liked him. His poor daughter.

Apparently he was naked and it was in MKO's apartment, wtf?
halfdutch
Jan. 22nd, 2008 11:03 pm (UTC)
:-( It sounds like he had trouble sleeping ... and MKO wasn't there, she was in Sundance.

But damn, so very sad.

Now they're saying he couldn't sleep because the role of The Joker was so dark and disturbing. :-( God, that would be so awful. It's just awful, regardless of the reason.

omg, and I had just turned on the news. Damn. That's tragic. What's this about the Olsen twin's apartment?
halfdutch

CNN is now saying that it was NOT Mary-Kate's apartment ... Dr. Drew is on now, more speculation. It really seems like an accidental overdose. His poor daughter. :-(

I feel like back when River died, I'm so sad and so damn angry at the same time.

Oh man.

I know, way too young. Right now, it seems like an accidental overdose because he just couldn't get any sleep. Really so sad. :-(

I'm thinking it's what he told interviewers recently, he just couldn't sleep and took too much by mistake. :-/ Doesn't make it any better.

This is insane and terrible. Other people have said it before - the first thing this made me think of was River Pheonix. this seems so different... more tragic, I guess. But the news knocked the wind out of me in the same way.

Oh man, I still get sad thinking of River and now this just kills me. GAH. I have to stop watching it on the news at some point but I still can't believe it.

This is so heartbreaking...
My friend texted us and told me... My eyes started tearing.
Me and My friend always pretended to be Jack and Ennis too, and I was Ennis... I loved Heath so much. *cries*

I just got up, opened Y!News, & there was the headline staring at me. And my 1st thought was, how the hell did someone manage to hack Y!N for this prank?! Still shocked...big loss all around.

I heard about it when I got home, I was too busy in work to go on line by the end of the day..seriously, I don't know what is sadder, that he was so young, or that he had a child that will grow up with out him.

It's a very sad situation.

It is the most unspeakably awful news :( I didn't know the guy, but I find myself wanting to cry about it anyway. Still, what I feel is nothing to what his family feel. He was a superb talent, and it's a sad waste of both of talent and of a human life.

I find all the speculation and internet bitching that's going on to be insensitive, ignorant and verging on inhuman. The manner of his death is not what's important in my mind. He is dead and he leaves behind a family and friends and that is a tragedy whatever the circumstances.

*steps off soapbox*

I'm sorry I don't comment in ages and then, bang, I rant at you all at once.

Lol, Fi.

It's just unbelievably sad. :-( People always speculate, even when all the facts aren't in. I can only imagine how devastated his family must be.

And hey, no problem. Glad to hear from you, even if it's a sad occasion.

I wasn't a huge huge fan or anything, but I did really like him in 10 Things I Hate About You and in Cassanova...those may actually be the only things I ever saw him in, now that I think of it. But it's so sad. He was younger than me, he had a little girl younger than mine and it was apparently because he couldn't get any sleep and accidently od'd on sleeping pills. Been there. That sucks. There's nothing else to be said. It just fucking sucks.

It's so sad. It seems accidental but either way, he's gone and I guess it doesn't matter, in a way. :-( It is scary if it's that easy to O.D. Glad you're still around. *hugs*
