So, I was standing outside the Plaza hotel in Manhattan waiting to meet my friend who ran the marathon, when a guy asked if he could take a picture of my chihuahua puppy. Pretty sure it was Heath Ledger 'cause he looked like this and spoke with an Australian accent.
Heath Ledger --- this is the memory i will always have for him, such a tragedy, fame makes you awfully lonely and very much alone since everyone is so concerned about their privacy, and in his case it was his downfall. Since no one was able to get close to him he was able to do what he did very easily because even though he was surrounded he was so very much alone. so very sad... it makes me wish to never be a celebrity... such a talented human being filled with such light has now become such a depressing cautionary tale...
“Once every 50 years a guy like that comes along. For his age, Heath has an incredible manliness about him. I think he has a strong sense of himself, but it’s especially amazing in someone so young, because usually male stars don’t develop that kind of thing until their thirties.” Happy birthday to one of the most talented actors ever to grace this planet. Heath Ledger, April 4th, 1979 - 22 January, 2008.
