R.i.P. heath leger
at age 28, my age. only one year more than janis or jimi.
he was discovered, facedown and naked by his cleaning lady and masseuse this afternoon at 3:35pm, after he did not answer his bedroom door.. they say sleeping pills were found, in the vicinity of/strew on, the bed in his broome st. apartment. thus it is suspected that he died from an overdose.. [apparently he had pneumonia and on top of that he had had trouble sleeping since playing the joker in the highly anticipated new batman movie.]
he is survived by his ex-lady michelle williams and his cute baby matilda, 2yrs.
truely tragic. he was one of the only actors, in our generation who, i had so looked forward to watching grow, mature, and develop. like johnny depp, jack nicholson or ed norton. just saying, this sucks. he was really talented and had a promising future...
i guess i will finally get around to watching brokeback mountain.
