Heath Ledger RIP

UPDATE #4 — Warner Bros. has 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."

UPDATE #3 — We hear from sources at Sundance that Michelle Williams is currently on a flight home from Sweden where she might have been filming Mammoth. No word on if she knows about this sad news yet.

UPDATE #2 — There are rumors that Heath was found at an apartment owned by Mary-Kate Olsen but this is not 100% confirmed. The pills are now being described as over-the-counter sleeping medication, according to police spokeswoman Barbara Chen. She also said, "This is being looked at as a possible overdose, but that is not confirmed yet." We're still in shock.

UPDATE — Apparently pills were found by his bed so claims of a drug related death are the latest news.

TMZ is reporting that Heath Ledger has sadly died. He was found dead at his home in NYC today by a housekeeper at 3:35 pm. No news on what happened and we are shocked and sad to report this terrible news. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family and of course his baby girl Matilda.
