It's seriously terrible to hear about Heath Ledger. David called me on the way home from work and had just heard from the radio that he died. A minute later, my mom called with the same news. I've watched Heath since Ten Things I Hate About You (1999). Yes, he was my celebrity crush for quite a while. I've seen almost all of his movies since then (Patriot, A Knight's Tale, Monster's Ball, The Four Feathers, Lords of Dogtown, Brokeback Mountain, Casanova, and Candy - with already definite plans to see I'm Not There and the new Batman movie).
He's extremely talented and reserved, which is nice for a young actor. He was only 28. He has a two-year-old baby girl with Michelle Williams, who I watched weekly on Dawson's Creek. I've also seen some of her films and am a fan. I feel terrible for Michelle and their daughter. I can't imagine. And they have to deal with all of the press. Anyway, it's just sad and David and I both feel upset about the situation.
