I'm actually a little sick from this, been lying down a lot last night and today. This beautiful fellow was my favorite actor and when the Academy board chose to ignore his brilliant creation in Brokeback, I was so angry I decided never to watch the awards again.
I believe a performance of that caliber has not been created in the past I dunno, 10 or 20 years. Truly.
I also believe he cannot be compared to John Belushi in any sense. Belushi was known to party and take drugs and lead a very wild life for many years. Heath has been out and about down in Soho these last months at various bars, but it's been stated how polite and well-mannered he was, not crazy, not drunk, not on drugs.
I have the feeling this is something of a youth thing, the anxiety of performing maybe, or living up to a reputation. Or maybe yeah, just the crazy stuff related to Batman and that character.
He also was suffering from anxiety it's been said.
I've never taken a sleeping pill! I guess I'd rather sit up at night and read some stupid (or good) book than rely on pills. My family is hooked on various pills and it's such a shame.
I'm so sad I'll stop now. Send love to his soul in these next few days....
here's a link of some beautiful pictures of him:
