    apparentley found dead in mary kate olsens home.

    my bro said he was on the imdb website and read this: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0468569/trivia

    quote: "To prepare for the role, Heath Ledger lived alone in a hotel room for a month researching the character and developing his performance, which he claims is based upon Sid Vicious and the character of Alex in A Clockwork Orange (1971). Ledger found the role extremely difficult, and suffered insomnia as a result.''

    did he push himself too far an go a bit nuts while he was locked away? o_O

    RIP, I'll never forget the scene in brokeback where he spits and takes Gyllenhaal up the ass. Great movie thou... and a skilled actor.

    this is really sad. he was so talented. and his poor little girl :(

    he was the biggest actor to come from perth. my flatmate went to school with him. devestating.

    oh and his family are convinced it wasnt suicide...

    RIP.

    This seems to support the insomnia statement in the imdb.com quote, but who knows for sure?

    i dont know how much experience you have with this sort of medicaments, but to OD on valium and xanax you have to eat an absolute truck load fucking heap of pills, thats what strikes me as odd about this, i mean to fall asleep or to flatten your angst you can down a good couple of 10-20 under a period of say half an hour and youll be just fine but after that youre so out of it, it gets tricky. i guess if you down them in groups of 10 and you do that a couple of times you would get in trouble, but then its starting to look like youre intentionally trying for something to happen
