I guess goin thru the back door gets the heart racing! Alright....that was way out of line

Too bad. Shame to see young peoples lives cut short. Interesting to see the results of the the autopsy.

Re: Heath Ledger found dead?

Thats horrible - and just after I gained a ton of respect for him for playing Joker (and doing a great job from the ads). Thats a shame. Anyone remember 10 things I hate about you? One of the only chick flicks I could watch.

Re: Heath Ledger found dead?

Just saw where it was suicide

How lame!!! I have no sympathy for people that take their own lives (unless you are in constant pain and confined to a bed 24/7)

IMHO - It's especially important for people that are in the "spotlight" to try and provide a better example. I knew someones kid that was a huge fan of Kurt Kobane. He was his idol....please

He was (the kid) found hung with a letter referring to joining his idol Kurt (imo - the idiot) Kobane

SAD!

Re: Heath Ledger found dead?

I was totally shocked when I saw this. I can't imagine why someone would commit suicide in his position. Hopefully he made a good last impression as joker in the new batman

How sad. I watched 'A Knights Tale' over Christmas and dispite the predictable cheesefest it was ... I rather enjoyed it.

I bet the moneymakers for the new Batman film are rubbing their hands with glee...

Re: Heath Ledger found dead?

I doubt it was suicide. He ordered a massage and was found dead before the masseuse reached him. Who orders a massage before planning to kill themself?

He was also a great actor. Watch Lords of Dogtown, I think he deserves it.

RIP Heath.
