When he passed away, I mentioned to a few friends that when Batman opens the public will understand to some extent why Heath Ledger had to be taking the meds that killed him. It is the same reason why he may win the best actor nod at the next Oscars. Actually, do you know what was Jack Nicholson’s first public response to his death….
“I warned him“.
As the reviews start to pour in about his incredible performance as the Clown Prince of Crime not only will The Joker steal the show from Batman once more, but we will only begin to fathom the dark depths his character took him to.
Don’t believe me, go watch it. Prepare for the lines on opening weekend. I guarantee you, no film this year will make more money. Rest in peace Heath…rest in peace.
Ledger recently told reporters he “slept an average of two hours a
night” while playing “a psychopathic, mass-murdering, schizophrenic
clown with zero empathy …
“I couldn’t stop thinking. My body was exhausted, and my mind was still going.”
Prescription drugs didn’t help, he said.
