Friends Mourn Ledgers Death

Everyone is still in shock over the tragic death of Heath Ledger. Here are some more statements from fellow friends and celebrities.

“That’s horrible…. I warned him!”
-- Jack Nicholson after hearing about the news from the paparazzi.

"Working with Heath was one of the purest joys of my life…He brought to the role of Ennis more than any of us could have imagined - a thirst for life, for love, and for truth, and a vulnerability that made everyone who knew him love him. His death is heartbreaking.”
--Brokeback Mountain director Ang Lee tells Us Weekly.

"He was such a special and genuine person, so extraordinarily talented because he was so raw and honest with his feelings…He was so full of life, so electric." He was "a sweet, smart and talented young man and had many friends. My heart goes out to his family. I am just beyond sad at this point, and shocked."
--Helen Christensen, who was on her way to visit him when she heard the news of his death, tells Women's Wear Daily.

"My heart goes out to Heath's family and friends during this time of great loss. I had the pleasure of meeting him a few years back and I can definitely say he had a wonderful career ahead of him. Undeniable talent and a loving new father. It's so tragic to see it all end so soon and sudden."?
