Heath Ledger is dead

According to the police, a masseuse arrived at Ledger's apartment and was let in by a housekeeper. When Ledger didn't answer his bedroom door, the housekeeper and the masseuse opened it and found him unconscious. Reports say that pills were found near his bed.

I remember that, during the time "Brokeback Mountain" was released, it was revealed that Ledger and his co-star Michelle Williams became a couple. It seemed like such a nice story, how a love affair blossomed in filming a movie about two men who fell in love but couldn't live happily ever after. Ledger and Williams had a daughter, but then last fall they broke up, and now Ledger is dead. There's no happily ever after in real life, either.

Oh, man, this is just wrong. The guy had a three-year-old daughter and a smokin' hot career -- I have no idea how they could tell but I'm really, really hoping that the OD was an accident (no insult meant, but stupidity happens more often than you think with OTC pills) rather than a suicide.

My heart goes out to Matilda Rose and his family.
