Heath's last days

07.07.2009

It's been over a year since we lost Heath Ledger, and with all the hoopla surrounding Michael Jackson's death, it feels like Heath's passing went almost unnoticed in comparison. But I still remember how sad I was when I found out about Heath--partly because it was so unexpected, and partly because it signalled the loss of an unlimited potential. Jackson had already exhausted his potential, but Heath wasn't even close. Much in the same way that Jackson's death has spawned infinite theories and incessant speculation over his last days, Heath's too, were shrouded in mystery.

The August issue of Vanity Fair features Heath Ledger on the cover, as prolific Hollywood scholar Peter Biskind examines the many factors that may have led to Ledger's demise. According to VF, Biksind's piece "explores Ledger’s final movie role, his uncertainty about Hollywood, his devotion to his young daughter, and what happened in the days and weeks leading up to his death as he battled chronic insomnia, pneumonia, and exhaustion." The issue itself hits newsstands on July 7th but you can check out a preview HERE.

My boy Heath. An honest shame. What a talent. I was lucky enough to have seen him in person during the TDK shoot. We hardly knew ya sir.

I totally get what he's trying to say, but I think its completly in pure taste to try and down play the mans accomplishments in order to have something to write about Heath Ledger. Bana is expressing pure opinion. There is nothing that shows HL is on an upswing with his career, his movies are totally inconsistant. He stated the HL has unlimited potential and ML has none left, Selling out all your shows in 5mins doesn't sound like exhausted potential to me...Who is to say HL would do any better

He was obviously having some kind of break down, kinda like Lindsey Lohan, and look at her now... Go to myjoblo.com, Heath Ledger is not even voted in the top 20 actors! I just think he is completely over rated and he hasn't done anything that I was impressed with other than TDK. But then again all the Jokers were great. Although Ledger has nothing really heavy under his belt, he will be missed, but then again we still have Paul Walker, and he "has unlimited potiental!"-LOL

Ledger. Hand's down. He wanted to be a directer. And the few things of his that have been released are amazing. I also think he would have dabbled in music later in life.

His acting work was amazing. his role in "Candy" was beautiful and tragic. He could have gone anywhere. But we'll never know. I look forward to seeing his final performance in Gilliams new film.

RIP

Wow, I completely agree. I'm 32 and so far that's the only celebrity death that's touched me... a great comedic loss that day.

wow...

I'm always surprised when people feel so certain about things they have no clue of. As if they were in the court-room, or say all the evidence. People rallied around the Bush administration when he went to war.

Just because the Michael might've looked weird to you, just media portrayed Michael as a weird guy doesn't automatically mean he did what people claim he did. Sometimes you can see a guy on the street who just looks like a freak and you'll judge him. Then maybe later that day he goes

You can latch onto the fact he found children to be the embodiment of innocence and he spent efforts to make sure they had the childhood he never did...

Who the fuck claims a pediatrician is all malicious and child molester-ish? No one...

i dont..

get it... Heath died last year, Michael Jackson died a week or so ago.. why would they still be talking about Heaths deaths like it just happened? And i dont see how you can downplay one death over another... they both died which is sad regardless. And as far as which celebrity hit me the most... Michael Jackson more than anything...and Eddie Guerrero hit me kinda hard too for the wrestling fans out there.

Heath was alright at best...

How dare you say MJ exhausted his potential! The guy invented the MOON WALK for fucks sake. 760 Million albums sold. He 50 years old and sold out his upcoming tour in minutes. Heath Ledger, I mean, the guy did 23 movies, but other than Dark Knight and Broke Back Mountain, there was nothing notable, maybe his role in Monster's Ball or Brothers Grimm, streching it. How many more movies does he have to do to reach his full potential, 100? Knights Tale and The Order was horrible. I think Dark

How many more movies does he have to do to reach his full potential, 100? Knights Tale and The Order was horrible. I think Dark Knight was the only Heath Ledger movie I actually saw in the theater. It amazes me that people are saying how great Heath Ledger was, but only when talking about TDK. Take away that, and what is left? I don't think he had 1.6 million people trying to see him after death.

All that said, I'd have to say George Carlin hit me hard, he was the first comedian for me to really relate to with his comedy because it wasn't just comedy he made you think about alot of the things he said.

Heath's definately

Heath's death has been the most rocking death in years because like it is pointed out in this article, Heath would have gone on to carry on making amazing films and I think eventually become known as one of the best actors ever.
Micheal Jackson made amazing music, made being the word, he wasn't making amazing music when he died would never top his work in the 80's. Heath's career was only just beginning and would have flourished into something awe inspriring. But, he didn't get a chance to,

Christopher Reeve. I was too young to remember when he had is accident, but I was always a fan of his Clark Kent/Superman. It was always something special to see him appear breifly on screen, like his guest appearances on Smallville, and I had a great amount of respect for his humanitarian work.

And Heath, because it was so unexpceted and I truely beleived he was going to be one of the cinema greats.

As I watch the parts of the kid toucher's funeral on TV today, the only thing I realize is that I'm sick of hearing his music for the last two weeks straight!

If I could bring back one person... GEORGE CARLIN! Brilliant thinker and a TRUE loss to society. Other than that, I can't think of any celeb that I give two shits about enough to be broken up over. If it was someone I personally knew, I'd be upset. As big of a Springsteen fan as I am, I don't think I'd be watching his funeral with any

Heath's death hit hard for me, but George Carlin's even moreso. The guy was THE best comedian of all-time, hands down. And he wasn't just in the business for the jokes. As time grew on, he got into more politics and social issues and was very influential on the way I view things now.

1993 and 1994 were a bit of a downer, River Phoenix, Bill Hicks and Kurt Cobain, those were the ones that really felt like a punch in the face. Shortly after Douglas Adams died in 2001 I found an autographed copy of Hitchhiker's guide, went home and cried my eyes out. The biggest one for me personally though, probably won't mean a lot to non UK radio listeners, was John Peel. I can't begin to explain the sheer joy and love of music this guy instilled, it's weird to say you feel a connection to

Billy Mays

I know this sounds like a joke, but Billy Mays. I started watching Pitchmen on Discovery after he died and now I really miss the guy. He was a dedicated family man and really promoted products based on whether or not he thought they were good. He really seemed to care about the inventors that he helped to promote.

Phil Hartman was a big one too. Just the way he went out was shitty.

Also, since I am a huge fan of Cool Hand Luke, Paul Newman was a sad day, but not unexpected.

Heath's death hit closest to home for me as far as celebrity deaths. I have been a big fan of his for a while and had been following the progression of TDK from the beginning anticipating the great things I knew he would do for the role, when I heard that he died I was actualy very sad. I think it's because I'm somewhat of an actor myself so him being someone that I looked up to or idolized it was tough to grasp. I am very sad that we will not be seing any more from such a talented guy who was

The ones that affect me the most are the sudden, out-of-nowhere deaths. Chris Farley, while no stranger to a good time, is a classic example. I'm too young to remember John Belushi, but I can imagine I would have had the same feeling on him as i did with Farley

Bernie Mac, John Ritter, and Heath (to a lesser extent) all made me pause and just go, "wow."

Putting aside his weird behavior and the rumors that circulated his life, Michael Jackson was FAR FROM 'EXHAUSTED POTENTIAL'. The man was on the verge of a very solid comeback not to mention a pioneer, visionary and lyrical genius. While I agree Heath Ledger will be sorely missed and was gone way too soon, Mr. Barna please don't try to diminish one man's death over another. They were both talented gifted and beautiful human beings in their own ways. May their families find peace and comfort in

Phil Hartman and Mitch Hedberg were big ones. Hartman is still my favorite SNL cast member ever, and Hedberg is my favorite stand-up comic. They both went way too soon, but Hartman's murder was even more tragic.

Ledger and Bernie Mac also hit me pretty hard. I'm not going to lie, Ledger's passing probably only affected me like it did because of how amped I was for the Joker, but I was really bummed for a while after that and checked out more of his movies because of it.

John Ritter definitely. Heck, John Candy was a shocker and I was nine years old when that happened.

Heath and Bernie Mac were probably the two biggest surprises of last year. Especially when you consider the "Bernie Mac Show" is still in syndication, that one's definitely gona count, even though I wasn't that big a fan when he was alive.

Blah.

The only reason you (the article writer) cared so much about Heath Ledger's death was because of The Dark Knight. If this had happened after "Casanova" or "The Brother's Grimm" you wouldn't of went on and on about it for a whole year.

Pretty much every other actor mentioned barely got even the slightest amount of attention on Joblo compared to Heath Ledger. It's the anticipation of the film that pushed it over the top, not necessarily his career as an actor, and I admit he was good in some

Eddie Guerrero and Dimebag Darrel

May not be movie celebs, but celebs in their own field.

Eddie died of heart failure at 37, in peak physical condition. He was and idol and an icon to me, and to this day I still get choked up watching him work.

Dimebag was brutally murdered on stage performing with Damageplan by a fuckbag who's name should never be spoken.

Both men I greatly looked up to in their respected fields.

As for actors, I'd say Brandon Lee. Floored me out of left field

No clue why, but I think it was a mixture of her original beauty and her tragic downhill slide.

Also, how about the article in Vanity Fair about Sarah Palin's "Moose sized ambition"....I'll bet they wish they'd waited to go to print by a few days ;)

I'd say Paul Newman affected me GREATLY.
The first movie I can remember that made me look back through his catalog was "Road to Perdition", probably my all time favorite gangster flick.

Newman was SUCH a great human being all around; nice, smart, kind, HUGE heart and to top it off one of the greatest actors who ever lived.

But Heath affected me just for the simple fact that TDK wasn't out yet. I didn't really think the casting was all that inspired.

Boy was I wrong.

I wasn't old

I wasn't old enough (and didn't have the extreme love for movies yet) to remember or care about Farley or Belushi, but if I had been old enough, I think those two would have affected me TONS.

But yeah, Paul Newman first and far most. Then probably Ledger, Bernie Mack, John Ritter, John Belushi and Chris Farley. RIP all of them.
