Celebrity Reactions to Heath Ledger's Death

Here are the first celebrity reactions of Heath Ledger‘s death:

“I am just beyond sad at this point and shocked. I was on my way over to pay him a visit when I found out. I had just left him a message and heard his voice on the machine. He was such a special and genuine person, so extraordinarily talented because he was so raw and honest with his feelings. He was so full of life, so electric…. This is immensely sad.” — supermodel Helena Christensen, rumored to have been romantically involved with Heath

“What a tragedy. My heart goes out to his family.” — Nicole Kidman

“I am shocked and very saddened by the news. I deeply respect Heath’s work and always admired his continuing development as an artist. My thoughts are with his family and close friends.” — Cate Blanchett

“I had such great hope for him. He was just taking off and to lose his life at such a young age is a tragic loss. My thoughts and prayers are with him and his family.” — Mel Gibson

“He is one of my favorite actors. His abilities are rare…it’s a tremendous loss. It’s hard to be here celebrating Australia under these circumstances.” — John Travolta

“It was with great sadness that I have learned of the passing of Heath Ledger. It is tragic that we have lost one of our nation’s finest actors in the prime of his life. Heath Ledger’s diverse and challenging roles will be remembered as some of the great performances by an Australian actor.” — Kevin Rudd, Prime Minister of Australia

“The studio is stunned and devastated by this tragic news. The entertainment community has lost an enormous talent. Heath was a brilliant actor and an exceptional person. Our hearts go out to his family and friends.” — Statement by Alan Horn, President and COO of Warner Bros. and Jeff Robinov, President, Warner Bros. Pictures Group

R.I.P Heath.

@ daniela – both, actually, thanks for asking.
respect? for what? another freaking HW idiot w/too much on his hands: too much money, too much time, too many sycophants up his ass, too much belief in his own hype. i’ll respect what matters: the soldiers giving their life in the war. the father who works two jobs to support a family. the medic who is up at 3am trying to save a life. the ghetto teacher who instills hope and fighting spirit in a kid who’d otherwise fall thru the cracks. don’t you be preaching at me what to respect.
