OMG That shocked me!!!




TMZ has learned that 2006 Academy Award nominee Heath Ledger has died in NY.

He was found dead in his bed in one of his residences in Soho by his housekeeper at 3:35 PM ET today. Law enforcement sources tell TMZ they believe it was not a crime.

The 28-year-old actor has a two year old daughter with former fiancee Michelle Williams -- they separated in September, 2007. He plays the Joker in the upcoming Batman film, "The Dark Knight."

The NY Times is reporting a masseuse arrived at his apartment and was let in the door by a housekeeper, who then knocked on the door of Mr. Ledger's bedroom. When no one answered, the housekeeper and the masseuse opened the bedroom and found Mr. Ledger unconscious. They shook him, but he did not respond. They immediately called the authorities. The police said they found pills near body.

We're told when paramedics responded the actor was in full cardiac arrest. They attempted to perform CPR on him, but were unsuccessful. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

Story developing...

I am so upset! 28 years old and seemingly had it all....obviously not as they suspect suicide.

His poor little girl Matilda.

I genuinely feel sad...like I actually knew him.

I feel like going home and watching 10 Things I Hate About You..one of my favourite movies..

RIP Heath... :cry:

My partner just told me about it and yes i was shocked..He was a perth boy.
But under no circumstance do i feel sorry for him. His family yes and his poor little daughter.
All of us have our problems but turning to drugs in my opinion isnt the way. It just proves all the money in the world will not buy you happiness..

I can't believe this! I keep expecting them to say "April Fools" or something.

My neice will be devastated, she is really close to his family. She went to school with his half sister.

He was 28!! He was still a baby... He is the joker in the new Batman movie!

I just don't understand....

Rustie, how do you know that was what it was? Apparantly they were sleeping pills. Which in an interview recently he had apparantly said he was taking as he wasnt sleeping following filming of the new Batman movie. Your kind of comment makes me really upset and shows no compassion.

Even if he HAD turned to drugs. You are not in his life and comments like that are not helpful.

I think we really need to not jump to any conclusions about what has happened. Please remember that the media flip things all out of context most of the time.

I just heard on the radio he was suffering from pneumonia and was taking prescribed medication for that as well...

Either way, for everyone involved, it's a tragic loss.

It's really got me down today! :cry:

I've had pnuemonia and it can really mess you up, so it wouldn't be hard to make a mistake with medication under the influence of the illness. Also he has had a pretty tough work schedule so he was probably very sick and exhausted so that, plus maybe one too many sleeping pills probably caused his body to shut down.

But we wont know for sure until the autopsy.

I just can't believe this. He seemed like just a normal guy who was in movies, he even picked his siter up from school when he was in Perth on visits!!

I cant believe this sad sad news. He seemed like a really nice guy. A friend of mine is close to one of his best friends and they are all so upset.

Its funny when a celebrity passes away, you seem to react sometimes like they are a friend.

I actually started crying at work as they were playing all these calls on the radio from people who knew him or had stories about him and he seemed like such a nice person.
