Heath Ledger has died.

Actor Heath Ledger was found dead at his Manhattan apartment in New York.

A police spokesman said Ledger had an appointment for a massage at the apartment, believed to be owned by Mary-Kate Olsen.

The housekeeper went to tell Ledger the masseuse had arrived and found him dead.

The 28-year-old Australian-born actor received an Oscar nomination for the hit film Brokeback Mountain. he is survived by his
family, including two-year-old daughter Matilda with his ex-girlfriend Michelle Williams.

Poor Heath, what a talent. What a waste.

Damn, FMC.
What a waste of fucking talent.
His role as the Joker looked killer in the trailer.
Poor Matilda.

I know I saw the trailer at the cinema at the weekend and I said to the Paramour that Michael Caine had spoken about what a depth and zap he brought to the role of the Joker.
Just goes to show we just never know the demons people are battling with.

It looked like he went on a huge bender after he split with Michelle, but how the fuck do I know? I just figured he was smart/in control of the party favors.
That scene in "Monster's Ball" when he asked his dad if he loved him, and then he shot and killed himself when Billy Bob said no? Tore me up.
What a shame.

Nope, but he was battling with a heroin addiction last year. Frankly I'd rather fight with a two headed Hydra.
Either way, he seemed a like a good sort and he was a fine actor.

Forget about his celebrity status, to see any young person die because of drugs, is so sad and such a waste.When will they ever learn.

Seems that the Westboro Baptist Church (that crowd of fuckwits that picket US soldiers funerals) are now planning to picket Ledger's (see link over at mine if you're interested).

Apparently, even acting gay is enough for them to get pissed off and to damn you to an eternity in hell.

A trifle harsh, I'd have thought, but then, I'm not a religious nutjob. Tossers.

I saw that earlier, I wouldn't worry about it. The problem with that shower is that people pay them any mind at all. They feed off it. They're a bunch of nutjobs, offensive and cuntish, best to ignore and rob them of the one thing they really crave, attention.

Too late for that, FMC. I've already gone off on one, calling them twats, and fuckers and such.

Saw the Louis Theroux thing on them. Scary, scary types. Didn't they get sued though? Or bankrupted in a court case where they were ordered to pay damages or something? Or is that just my wishful thinking ...
