Heath Ledger dead

They found the actor Heath Ledger dead today in NY.

"He was found dead in his bed in one of his residences in Soho by his housekeeper at 3:35 PM ET today. Law enforcement sources tell TMZ they believe it was not a crime, adding pills were found near his body."

It figures that pills were involved.

It can happen so easily.

LOL I wont, he's been in a few movies. He was a good actor. I cant remember the title to the one movie I liked besides A Knights Tale. It was about a girl he took a bet on dating and taking to the prom,she was an artist and he was this cool guy at school,Paul Walker played in it also and of course there is the mountain movie thing. Couldn't bring myself to watch that one. Quit watching anything with Jake Gylenhal after that movie also. One nice thing about Houston NO MOUNTAINS

I stand corrected. It was 10 Things I Hate About You he played in. She's All That starred Freddy Prince and Paul Walker. Still a good movie.

I used to date this chick, and she was or is a mess. She use to smoke coke with Heath. Let me explain.

I am 28 now, the same age as Heath and the girl. Lets call her Mary for now. Mary was a VERY special girl. Parents are very rich. Father is Joel Katz, famous defence attorney for Pearl Jam and many more big bands. And Mary several years ago, maybe back in 2002 was having problems with drugs and college, so good old dad decides to send Mary somewhere to get her away from the usual drug seen she was in.  She was into mostly herion, very sad. She had a huge bankacount to say the least, basiccly bottomless. And so they decide to send Mary to Costa Rico.  She is there maybe 1 day before discovering 5$ grams of coke at the local flea market. While at the market she meets Heath Ledger, buying the same poison she was. And let me tell you Mary is a real looker and can basically get anything she wants with her looks alone. So Heath and her hit it off, and party togeather for the next two weeks. Sleeping togeather and smoking coke till the sun comes up were her words I beleive. Any way, Heath was down there for private surfing lessons to train for some movie he was to be in. They figure, get him out of the US and let him focus. Yeah right, you have these two beutiful people togeather, and all they did was smoke coke and screw. Great idea Paramount....

Any way sorry for the rant. Mary is still struggling with addiction and is a 85lb crack head now. I havent seen her in a while so maybe I am wrong, but who knows.  I saw her myspace page, and she didnt look good. She showed me all these pics of her and Heath smiling togeather. Just goes to show what drugs do to beutiful people, they make you ugly.  Infact, I am calling Mary right now to see how she is doing.

i loved his acting and personality....i am watching cnn right now and they are still saying that the death looks to be from sleeping pills (ambien) that he was perscribed to, and that they weren't lying all over in the looks of a purposeful OD or suicide....they think it mixed with another medication...i really hope that is the case. i really hope his death wasn't due to purposeful use of drugs.... sad, very sad.
