We’ve had a crush on Ledger since his first Hollywood performance in 10 Things I Hate About You,
and we shared in the collective gay hard-on at what might be the
hottest man-on-man kiss ever put to (non-porn) film between him and
Jake Gyllenhaal in 2005’s Brokeback Mountain.
When we heard the news, we first thought Heath might have been dipping into the
same extra-special batch of heroin that took the life of Brad Renfro
last week. But the housekeeper and masseuse who found him also found a bunch of pills scattered around, and the NY Times blog is already calling it a suicide-we’d recommend not ruling out the possibility of an accidental drug+alcohol interaction (the Times also claimed that he was at an apartment owned by Mary-Kate Olsen but this has since been retracted). No word yet as to whether the masseuse was of the “happy ending” variety.
UPDATE: At least one of the pill bottles present in the room was Ambien, and Ledger was quoted in November as saying two Ambien only kept him asleep “for about an hour.” Sounds like a PR problem for the Sanofi-Aventis drug company…
UPDATE: Well hello, lawyer letter from Playgirl. In other news, Playgirl can afford a lawyer? Images removed.
The Homosexual Recruiter Association celebrates another success today now that former Menudo boy bander Angelo Garcia has done the yep-i'm-gay thing. And to celebrate, he's posing nude.
