One Year Later - Remembering Heath Ledger

One year ago, Hollywood lost one of its brightest stars, Heath Ledger. His untimely death was the result of an accidental drug overdose.

Heath leaves us with a tapestry of cinematic inspiration, best known for his roles in Monster’s Ball, A Knight’s Tale, Brokeback Mountain, and most recently, The Dark Knight.

This year, Heath won a posthumous Golden Globe for his role as the diabolical villain, The Joker, in The Dark Knight.

Additionally, Heath was just Oscar nominated for Best Supporting Actor for his work in The Dark Knight.

Other nominees for best supporting actor include: Josh Brolin, Milk; Robert Downey Jr., Tropic Thunder; Philip Seymour Hoffman, Doubt; and Michael Shannon, Revolutionary Road.

Heath, who would have been 28, is survived by 3-year-old daughter, Matilda Rose.

God gives you life to live it, not to take it away. Assumptions have been made but who knows what happened. A life is still a life, even if it is your enemy’s so RIP Heath.

A THOUSAND people killed in Palestine but is there a tribute for the innocent children, men and women who lost their lives?

Rest in Peace, Heath Ledger!

I love you!

R.I.P. Heath Andrew Ledger.

You will always be remembered

OH…PLEASE….i feel sorry for his family and friends but people REALLY need to get a reality check….there is NO SUCH THING as an accidental overdose….the man woz addict deal with it…..im sick of people keep talking about it….many hollywood actors are on drugs and his no different…just let the man rest in peace.

Congratulations to the Ledger family for Heath’s nomination, which I’m sure is bittersweet for them. Hope he wins. He was amazing as the Joker and he owned TDK. He deserves it.

RIP Heath… You’re always alive in Matilda everyday.

OH & everyone complaining about what I wrote. You Americans are so self-obsessed and ignorant. You see the world in a haze of gold. Get over these STUPID film stars and wake up and see whats happening in the rest of the world.

Forget about the Palestinians? Why don’t you sdfu, if your family were to f ucking die you wouldn’t turn around and start crying over a movie star who had millions in the bank and commited suicide. F ucking ignorant b astards

R.I.P Heath
i love u so much
so happy for Oscar Nomination…
Congrats!
hope u’ll win cuz u should win that award!

Mary-Kate Olsen still walks free. Even though everyone knows she killed Heath Ledger. When will there be justice?

I cant believe it’s been a year. I fell in love with him in 10 things i hate about you. i love that movie.

I feel sorry for Mathilda that her daddy is not around but Heath was an idiot for risking his life with drugs. His joker is ICONIC! It will be extremely difficult for anyone to step into that role now. Kudos on the nom for the Dark Knight franchise.

Wow one year. A great actor that is missed, i will enjoy his work for a long time. RIP Heath
