"Ledger drug investigation dropped"

News story from The West Australian, 7 August:

To quote Jack Twist: "For what it's worth"

You got that right.

Let be...let be...That is beautifully quoted, rlh03. I agree with you 100%. The lesson is simple and early on, prescription drugs are powerful and should be used only with extreme caution and respect for its misuse. If one teenager learns this lesson from Heath's tragic accident, then he had saved yet another life, and would be proud.  :ghug:

I know some young people who have really paid attention to this, have had a bit of a rude awakening because of Heath's situation.  I understand that prescription drugs are the drugs of choice for many young people these days, and I sure hope this will point out to them how careful one must be...

Sir Michael Caine: It was a privilege working with Heath Ledger
Actor pays tribute to his Batman co-star

Saturday, 9 August 2008


Sir Michael Caine says it was a pleasure to work with Heath Ledger on The Dark Knight.

The veteran actor, 75, heaped praise on the Australian star who died of a prescription drugs overdose in January at the age of 28.

‘What a talent,’ he tells Hello! ‘We’d sit on set, chatting for hours. Then he’d get up, drop being Heath, and go into this amazing performance.

‘I shall miss him – very much. And it was a privilege working with him, you can’t say that of some actors out there, believe me.’

The Dark Knight has broken box office records, taking £77.7million in its opening weekend.

And Heath’s portrayal of The Joker is being hailed as Oscar-worthy.

Thanks for this, Ynnaf. As usual, these words bring me to tears, and Sir Michael Caine's sincerity is absolutely moving.

And on the same page is this link, that really pushed my tears to the limit.

http://www.nowmagazine.co.uk/celebrity-news/264875/heath-ledger-tipped-to-win-an-oscar-for-the-dark-knight/1/

quoting Peter Travers of Rolling Stones:

Quote
‘It's typical of Heath's total commitment to films as diverse as Brokeback Mountain and I'm Not There that he does nothing out of vanity or the need to be liked.

‘Heath's Joker has no grey areas — he's all rampaging id. He creates a Joker for the ages.

‘If there's a movement to get him the first posthumous Oscar since Peter Finch won for 1976's Network, sign me up.’
Heath, you are loved, like this, always.

Ledger bar to honour late actor
12th August 2008, 7:45 WST

A bar designed by Heath Ledger will open in New York.

The nautical-themed restaurant and bar, called BrightSide, is scheduled to begin operations in Brooklyn next month, according to reports in The Daily Telegraph newspaper in London today.

The Dark Knight star had invested in the bar with his friend and business partner Jud Mongell.

The venue's interior will contain features designed by Ledger, who  received posthumous critical acclaim for his depiction of the Joker in the latest Batman film. It will also contain personal references to him, including a chessboard engraved into one of the tables.

"Heath was a big chess player," Mr Mongell said in The Telegraph. "The whole idea was to make it a spot for us. We wanted to make it our own space to hang out."

Mr Mongell said the opening would be bittersweet without Ledger, who died in January at the age of 28 from an accidental prescription drug overdose.

"Heath was very, very into it. He drew the floor plans and thought of the name, BrightSide, because it's on the bright side of McCarren Park," Mr Mongell said.

John McCormick, who designed the bar, Ledger had also wanted a table large enough to accommodate his family.

"Heath specifically talked about having a place for him and his family to sit," said Mr McCormick.

"It was great working with Heath. He was the most unassuming guy."

I love the idea of this and I'm so glad it's being brought to fruition despite Heath not being here to see the realisation of his dream.

But its bittersweet too, because he should be here, to see his family sat at that large table, and him sitting with them..... :\'( :\'( :\'( :\'(

I love the name though, it makes me smile...

This is a news article from last month, but I don't remember if it was posted here:

Ledger honoured with posthumous award

Heath Ledger's contribution to the Australian film industry is to be honoured with the 2008 Chauvel Award.

The posthumous award will be made at next month's Brisbane International Film Festival (BIFF), Queensland Arts Minister Rod Welford announced on Friday.

Ledger died in New York from an accidental overdose of prescription drugs in January.

Mr Welford said Ledger's friends and colleagues would be present for the award presentation on August 7.

"Over the years, there have been many others who have drawn focus to the Australian film industry, either through their own personal achievements in their field or their consistent and staunch support for Australian filmmaking," he said.

"Heath Ledger did both, and his passing highlighted how loved and revered he was, not just by fans but by the Australian film-making community."

Previous recipients of the award, named after filmmakers Charles and Elsa Chauvel, include director George Miller and actors Geoffrey Rush, Bryan Brown and Jack Thompson.

Hype is building for Ledger to receive a best supporting actor Oscar nomination following gushing reviews for his performance as the Joker in The Dark Knight, released this week.

I started reading a biography about Heath. It's called "Heath Ledger, Hollywood's Dark Star" by Brian J, Robb. I don't like the title very much. But so far the author tends to stick to the facts (I'm just at the beginning though) and is using a lot of quotes, which is nice. I like reading things that Heath said, things I haven't read before, and things that his friends and family said about him. Here are some bits that I liked, and haven't known before.

Heath was very much into sports when he was at school, but there was a "secret" reason behind it. This is from the biography:

Despite his aptitude for hockey and swimming, Heath wouldn't pursue any physical activity just for the sake of it. He actually avoided joining the military cadet programme at Guildford Grammar School. 'You had to wear a uniform,' he later recalled in Vanity Fair. 'I didn't want to [prepare to] fight. I thought it was strange that they were teaching kids to shoot automatic weapons. If you didn't do it, they made you play sports. So I played a lot of field hockey, cricket and Australians-rules foodball. I played them all just to get out of cadets. Who wants to shoot an automatic rifle? What was I going to use that for?'

Kim Ledger about his son:

'Heath doesn't want to squash an ant. He worries about everything, from an insect dying onward. He's very soft inside. We're the only father and son I know who hug and roll around on the floor of the airport when we meet. We're huggy, touchy people.'

More from Heath's dad:

'Heath was an arty boy,' recalled Kim. 'He had some of his special abstract paintings pinned on the walls of his room and on the ceiling. We were lying back looking at the art on the ceiling, at about one O'clock in the morning. We'd been talking for about half an hour - we often talked like that - I finally told him he was going to have to get some sleep because he had school in the morning. He was about fourteen of fifteen. He said to me, "Well, Dad, you're going to have to get used to this, because this is what I'm going to be doing. I'm going to be very good at it. I'm really going to enjoy it." I always told him that he couldn't be good at anything unless he enjoyed it 150 per cent.'

You're welcome. I like discovering these little things about him.


Heath about how his love for old movies and Gene Kelly in particular got him interested in acting:

'It all comes from my love of Kelly. I think he's just awesome. It was more or less the partnership between him and Judy Garland that I liked. There was something so magical about Gene Kelly's films. It was movie-making! They built those amazing sets! They danced and sang!'

About the reason for taking up modern dance:

...'to gain more control over my body. I did some dance courses mainly because when I started doing theatre I was really self-conscious of what my body was doing and where my hands were and what my feet were doing.'

Thank you so so so very much for this, Keren!!  ^f^ I mean it.

I'm totally in love with what you quoted. Heath is, he is, I don't know, I don't find words. He's simply too much, too much for words, totally amazing, and great, and unique and special, a very very very beautiful kind soul, full of love, wanting peace, wanting light, wanting to make art, something gorgeous and different with his life. He is stunning, a treasure, the kind of men people fall in love with, humble and caring, just like a dream, someone with a big big big heart, someone who makes you feel just good, just the right way. How utterly unfair and cruel his death is!!! So many very bad people getting their stomach full right now and one delicious gentle loving human being lost forever. I can't stand it. It's not right. It hurts so much.

Actors give up earnings for Ledger's daughter

The actors who stepped in to finish the late Heath Ledger's last film have come to the rescue again, this time helping to guarantee his daughter Matilda's financial security.

Jude Law, Colin Farrell and Johnny Depp — who all played versions of Ledger's character Tim in The Imaginarium of Dr Parnassus after his January death — have donated their earnings from the movie to Matilda.

Footage of Ledger will still be used in the film, which is set in London, while the portrayals from Law, Colin and Farrell will be employed when the story crosses into parallel worlds.

Director Terry Gilliam said the decision by the trio to step in after Ledger's death was "heroic".

"This doesn't happen very often ... where there's a tragedy like this, and very famous, very successful actors suddenly say, 'OK, we'll do whatever it takes to help'," he said.

"They came, they allowed the movie to be finished and they didn't take money — it goes to Heath's daughter.

"That's extraordinary and wonderful ... and we've got a movie full of wonderful people who did extraordinary things to help."

"People's minds are like parachutes. To function properly they must first be open." - W.G.P.

This one really got me, first I laughed because it reminded me of the fly that lands on his face during the confrontation scene in Brokeback, when he says, "all them things I don't know", I always thought it was interesting because most people would just have a natural instinct to slap their face and kill it, but I always felt he was so into the scene, he didn't even feel it; now I thought, maybe he just didn't believe in killing it.........

Then I read the part of him and his dad loving each other so much they rolled on the airport floor hugging...Oh my  :\'( :\'( :\'(

     Heath seem to me.  One of those people.  That always knew.  Who they were.  Where they were going.  And why they were here.  The unique part is he did it all with love.  And that is why I believe we all love him.

I'm sorry for making you all sad with the quotes, but I wanted to share them... Tammy, I agreed with every word you said! I was reading those quotes in the book and I thought, how amazing can this guy be? Can he be even more wonderful than I thought? And it makes me sad too, to realise again and again how huge the loss is, what a special, incredible human being we all lost here... but I still love learning all these little things about him.

If I remember correctly from one of his interviews, I believe Heath doesn't watch his own movies, and I think he would be gratified to see the outpouring of support for his amazing acting. The money would be good, too, seeing it would go to Matilda. I hope. Heath would be very happy to know that Matilda will start her life well off.

Yup. Sportstalk. I am with you 100% here.  :\'(  :ghug: I can't imagine what it must be like, to miss those long distance phone calls, those moments when good news of Heath appears on TV, in the newspapers, on billboards, the frequent visits. Heath was very close to his family. The close ties make his absence so much more felt than otherwise.

Just got back from seeing 2 wonderful brokies, Chameau and Froggy, in Montreal Canada.

On the way there, I randomly got a magazine I haven't bought in years just to have something to read on the plane.

After buying it, this was what I found inside :\'(

This is just the top left corner of a 2 page spread. I can't post everything because it has a pap pic from the beach side memorial, and a pap pic of Heath, Michelle, and Matilda. It has other lovely photos too. But I had to post this one section because what it says is just so true.

Just got back from seeing 2 wonderful brokies, Chameau and Froggy, in Montreal Canada.

On the way there, I randomly got a magazine I haven't bought in years just to have something to read on the plane.

After buying it, this was what I found inside :\'(

This is just the top left corner of a 2 page spread. I can't post everything because it has a pap pic from the beach side memorial, and a pap pic of Heath, Michelle, and Matilda. It has other lovely photos too. But I had to post this one section because what it says is just so true.



That's wonderful, Jessicat. I don't believe in coincidences, and obviously the Brokie meet continued with you onto the plane. I am glad you had good company, to keep your mind of the flight.
 :ghug: Thanks for sharing the pictures and article.

Heath, you are loved, like this, always.

Oh thank you, thank you, Jess!!!  ^f^ I love that pic, I love that they talked about Heath and I agree with those words too: Heath sure didn't like the fame, he was too humble to like that. And I love him for that, because I feel him nearer to me because of that. He is not a super start untouchable and distant, he is just a normal guy wanting to create art, wanting to live happy, wanting to love and being love. That's so special and wonderful!!

Like Andrew, I don't believe in coincidences either...

Thank you for posting it Jess... I wonder who this Garth Pearce is, and how did he know Heath. "Allergic to fame" is a good way to put it... he sure never liked the spotlights.
The truth is... sometimes I miss you so much I can hardly stand it.
