Gone Too Soon: Celebs Who Died Before Their Time

  • Gone Too Soon: Celebs Who Died Before Their Time
Heath Ledger tragically passed away from an accidental drug overdose on January 22, 2008 at the age of 28 in NYC. Many believed the intensity of his role as the Joker in the Batman film ‘The Dark Knight’ led to use of prescription drugs. Despite the tragedy, that same role won him a posthumous Oscar for best supporting actor.

    What? Since when does anyone worship Michelle Williams? She's barely ever even in the news. Stop talking a bunch of nonsense woman.

    Because a role was so called "dark" he abused prescription drugs? Something wrong with that picture, I did like Heath in several movies though. I do wish they would stop worshipping Michelle Williams like some Virgin Mary because she happened to have had his baby. That's happened before. No need to see Michelle in celeb news everyyy singleee dayyy even if only for her haircut because she had Heath's baby. She is human. Plenty of women, sadly, are pregnant when they lose their spouse/partner. Stop over playing the Michelle business,,she's no one to worship.
