    Before It's Too Late...

    More than a year after Heath's much unexpected death came the nominations and awards. He does deserve, although, ironically, it's quite sad that they came when he's already gone..

    I Remember

    I can remember how much I hated hearing about it. It always made me sad because I always loved him so much. I went to see the Dark Knight the other day. It was the best performance he has ever made and I love him more now than ever.

    It's horrible that he's gone/ Obviously I didn't know him or anything, but he was only 28 (I think) and had a kid...such a shame. Hopefully others will learn from it, but just recently Brad Renfro died of an overdose. May he rest in peace.

    Me Neither!

    I was glad to see this group here already. I think it's terrible, I have been a fan of his for a long time. I just saw Candy a couple days ago. Ironically. I really grapple with the absolute absence of death, whether I know the person or not, that they are so not there. That...

    I was taking a nap and my cell phone went of. I get texts of CNN Breaking News. I opened my phone and it said that he was found dead in his apartment. I was in shock. They say it was drug-related. That is just really sad.

    Can't Wait For His Last Movie to Come Out

    I know his last movie is going to be coming out soon. I forgot what it was called but it's going to have Johnny Depp, Jude Law, and Colin Ferral in it and they donated all of their salaries to Mitilda Heath's little girl. I'm sure the movie will be a big hit.

    Too Much Fame, Too Young Or Something Else?

    Some people have too much fame when their just too young (maybe not in years but emotionally) to deal with everything that comes with being famous.  Although, this is simply not a good enough explanation for me.  I believe that maybe Heath had an addictive personality...

    This Guy I Loved.

     I am not lying when I say that I was extremely depressed when he died. For a couple of reasons: 1) I LOVED him. I think I was....uh....IN love with him. 2) I was suicidal myself, and his suicide rumors just somehow "hit" me in a bad, bad way. And 3) I was...

    He was such a good Actor. How dare anyone say he tried to kill himself. He loved that baby with all his heart he wouldn't have dared. He was going places with his career. He was also sexy.

    Heath Ledger

    The other night I was watching a young Heath Ledger in "10 Things I Hate About You." The funny thing is, I didn't even realise it was Heath Ledger until the film finished. Man, he was hot in that film! Would I have swapped places with Julia Styles? You bet!

    When I first heard about it in late January of 2008, I felt shocked and like someone I knew had died. Heath Ledger was one of those actors that you learned about through the roles that they chose to play. I loved all the movies he chose to be a part of because he was very...

    Can't Really Picture Anyone Dead

    Heath Ledger..... I don't know what to feel when I say or think that name Heath Ledger. I always think Broke Back Mountain. He doesn't seem like the kind of person that would experience all those emotions to take those many pills.... I couldn't believe it, the day that the...

    ...but I think it's about time that someone who is a waste of air dies from drug use (whether accidental or otherwise) instead of someone who is valuable to his community, his family and the world is general like Heath Ledger.  His movies weren't all blockbusters, but he was...

    When I heard the new, I couldn't believe it at all. It just didn't make sense. Or it was too hard to make sense. He was so well-behavied, so good person, too rational. And now he's gone. He's not going to live no-more, he's not going to get better, he's nothing. And he becomes a...
