Kate Bosworth Shares Touching Tribute to Heath Ledger on What Would Have Been His 40th Birthday

Kate Bosworth just posted a touching tribute to the late Heath Ledger today (April 4), which would have been his 40th birthday.

“Doesn’t seem so long ago we were all running around LA, shotgunned into Hollywood + popping off the new millennium’s cork, having a laugh. It was a crazy time. I was literally straight out of high school, feeling young & super shy and he was always so sweet within a surreal scene,” Kate wrote on her Instagram account.

She continued, “I really, really would have loved to have known Heath today, at 40. No limits on what he would have accomplished. Here is what I remember: he was sensitive, gentle, kind, wickedly funny. Extraordinarily special. Time goes by, his image still a teenage heartthrob.”

Kate concluded, “And his work. So brilliant + honest & he was just getting started. But to remember the Human. I was on the outer orbit. Imagine those close to the sun. Thinking of all the people who knew and loved him on this day. Man, you made one hell of a mark. xo.”

Heath died in 2008 from an accidental overdose. He was 28.
