Apparently DDL was on Oprah today and said some really touching things about Health's passing. As soon as it's on youtube, hopefully I or someone more attentive will post it here.

If there's one absolute in Hollywood though, it's that Daniel Day-Lewis can be counted on remaining the utter definition of class.

Is that common in the USA, for there to be two funerals? (Im still presuming there is one here as well)
There's a memorial service in LA, but the actual funeral will be in Perth.

It's legitimately shaken me up and I'm not 100% sure why. I've been thinking about it all night. . .

I'm surprised that in the Australian media at least, there haven't been many parallels drawn between Heath Ledger and Michael Hutchence, especially seeing as they are both by far the biggest "public" deaths in Australia over the past decade (Steve Irwin aside of course, and while he did die in a fairly crazy way, it was, I guess 'on the job' and under a fairly expected circumstance considering - ie death by animal).

Both died alone in pretty odd and mysterious circumstances (deliberate? accident?), both leave behind a very young daughter. Ledger was rumoured to be dating Helena Christensen, and she was on her way to his apartment when she found out. She, of course, dated Hutchence for a couple of years in the 90s. Ledger was rumoured to be interested in, or at least on the top of the producers wishlist, to play Hutchence in a planned biopic.

Heath Ledger died on January 22, Michael Hutchence's birthday.

I'm glad that they will have a memorial service statewide. But I don't think the media has any right to find out where and when the funeral is. Somehow someway I hope they can pull off a private funeral with no paparazzi there.

this ordeal has been in the back of my head since yesterday and reminiscing of river phoenix's untimely death. it's always sad when someone dies, and extremely upsetting when it's someone you and the closer they were to you the worse it is. a celebrity passing away usually doesn't have much reaction from me than the "how sad, prayers to their family". but heath ledger's death is more tragic and sad than to be expected. he was just starting to really get recognized by his work and acting ability, i remember being blown away by his performance in Candy and thinking "wow, I never gave him the credit he deserves" and once it was announced he was to be Joker it seemed everyone had faith he would deliver the goods.
I'm sure Batman movie is gonna be bigger than life, it's gonna be a monster but somewhat sad to see what a great young actor is now missing.

Heath's family have shared their grief with an Australian newspaper. Got this from People.com...

Quote:
Heath Ledger's family members bared their grief in an Australian newspaper, writing of the heart-wrenching loss of the Hollywood actor – who to them was always a brother or a son.

In one of several messages in the death notices section of the West Australian on Friday, his mother Sally wrote:

Our darling boy, special in so many ways to all of us. You knew you were so loved. You lived life with courage and daring and we are so grateful for the wonderful times we shared. We will be there for Matilda.

His older sister Kate, who called her brother by the pet name "Roast," wrote:

I can hardly breathe when I try to write this. We were the ultimate in soul mates. I feel both my heart and life have been torn apart. I loved our special talks, our daily chats from where ever you were in the world.

I especially loved all the precious time we spent together. We were so fortunate to have you as long as we did. You were so many things to so many people, but to me you were just my little brother.

There will never, ever be another "Heath" and I think that in itself is the greatest tragedy.

I will continue to talk with you everyday and love you just as if you were here. You will never leave my thoughts "Roast", ever.


A Message from His Father
His father Kim, who called his son by the nicknames "Heatho" and "Beef," writes:

My beautiful boy, so loving, so talented, so independent, so caring, so young . . . no more chess games mate . . . this is it, couldn't beat you anyway!

My body aches for the sound of your voice, our chats, our laughs and our life and times together.

Your truly varied artistic skills, insatiable desire to improve and eclectic abilities set you apart from any other person on the planet . . . it had only just started for you ... and for us to further enjoy. We were one, in soul and commitment. Just . . . Father and Son. I will love you forever, Dad.


His Entire Family Writes
And a note signed by his entire family read:

How do we describe our sudden and tragic loss? ... You were the most amazing individual "old soul" in a young man's body.

You so loved us, as we dearly loved you. As a close knit and very private family unit we have observed you so determined yet quietly travelling in your self-styled path in life, nothing would get in your way ... no mountain too tall, no river too wide.

You dreamed your dreams and lived them with passion and intelligent commitment. We have been privileged to accompany you on a ride through life that has simply been amazing and through it all, we have loved each other beyond imagination.

Your true legacy lives on in beautiful little Matilda, who will always remain in the greatest of care. Our hearts are broken.

That's freaky!

Umm.....Who the fuck is this bastard? Never heard of him before this.....I know NOW he is an un-godly son-of-a-bitch who apparently hates gays.......according to this mutant, he calls Australia "the land of Sodom"

Well if that's the case, let him come over and picket....I'm sure there are a few "Aussies" that would just love to give this sort of person who gets simple pleasures out of life by tearing wings off dying butterflies, a warm Australian G'DAY by stuffing his picket sign so far up his arse, his tounge will be reading "Im an Abomination!"

That guy is a complete arsehole, I remember the Chasers pulled a stunt when he first started ranting.



But the loss of Heath is shocking, and so sad.
28 is way to young.


And like Earnie Shavers said, I am quite suprised that they havent made a link Between the 2 stars
Michael Hutchence was the first person i thought of when I was told the news.

He and his family (his "church" is comprised almost exclusively of family members) are inbred attention whores.

That makes sense.

I, to, thought of Michael Hutchence. And I agree about the deaths of Steve Irwin, Peter Brock, etc, who died in ways we pretty much anticipated. Heath Ledgers death is a bit more of a surprise.

And in reply to the U2Girl1978, I doubt there will be paparazzi at the funeral. Perth is such a long long way from anywhere the paparazzi would lose a few days income just travelling here. I reckon the paparazzi will swarm on the memorial service in the USA though.
