    wow ledger was a homo


    i'm sad.. why was this happened to Heath? RIP Ennis Del Mar :'(



    I'm very sad..

    Still RIP he will be missed..


    He just finished filming The Dark Knight- sometimes actors get absorbed in the roles that they play and find it hard to let go- was this a dark movie- could it have exaggerated his depression about his own life and caused him his death, whether accidental from an overdose


    We should never junge a person until we have walked in their shoes. They are saying that it may have been suicide but also may have been accidental, either way the world has lost a talented , young and promising actor and person, and matilda has lost her daddy. If it is ruled as a suicide, I think people need to be careful of what they say if they did not know him personally and no one will ever know what was going through his head or what he may have been feeling. I feel so sorry for his family and friends as this was some shocking and unexpected tragedy. Rest in Peace.


    I should feel sorry for him but I don't. He had talent, fame and money but clearly could not handle it.


    I agree...so sad - may he rest in peace. May his daughter and family be blessed.


    this is so sad! He was such a good actor... especially in brokeback mountain ;'(


    I loved this actor my heart is broken, I'm still in shock, I did not know him personally, but would have loved to meet him one day, guess now it will be in Heaven! an adord fan always, you will be missed sadly!!!!!


    Fix the year of death. It should read 1979-2008 not 2007
