Heath Ledger's family rep contacted TMZ.com to clear up reports over an alleged suicide. Heath allegedly overdosed on sleeping pills and an autopsy is scheduled for tomorrow. Heath was sick with pneumonia when he died today.
Ledger just wrapped up the next Batman film, "The Dark Knight." Alan Horn, President of Warner Bros. and Jeff Robinov, President, Warner Bros. Pictures Group have issued the following statement:
"The studio is stunned and devastated by this tragic news. The entertainment community has lost an enormous talent. Heath was a brilliant actor and an exceptional person. Our hearts go out to his family and friends."
It's obviously a tragic day for the family, he was such a talented actor that it's a shame his life was cut so short.
