the thing that really made me cry- not just tears welling, but sobbingbawling cry- was the fact that heath ledger's family found out about his death by hearing it on the radio.|
i mean the whole damned thing is obviously a tragedy, but... can you imagine?
you just wouldn't believe it, would you? you'd think it had to be some stupid rumour- some cruel joke.
but it was true, and they found out on the fucking radio.
i believe that one of the things heath ledger was known for in hollywood was his need for privacy, his dislike of photographers/interviews and red carpet bullshit... so imagine being a guy like that, and having your family discover your death in such an impersonal, globally broadcast manner.
