The sudden death of this actor has caused quite a stir. I didn’t get to watch him in the highly acclaimed Brokeback Mountain, but I did find the preview of the Dark Knight interesting. His portrayal of the Joker reminded me of Jack Nicholson’s playing the Joker in early Batman movies. Which I liked far better than the not-so-recent installments.
Doesn’t it sadden you when the public is forced to watch the darkness lying behind the glamor? All this time, you think that being a celebrated artist, their lives are automatically better than your average citizen. But it is revealed, again and again, that no matter how public their lives are, some of these artists are probably dealing with problems that we cannot even imagine.
