Heath Ledger: A Life in Pictures

It's been more than a decade since Ledger was found dead in his Manhattan apartment in January 2008. "We are all deeply saddened and shocked by this accident," the actor's publicist said in a statement at the time. "This is an extremely difficult time for his loved ones and we are asking the media to please respect the family's privacy and avoid speculation until the facts are known."

In April 2019, Kate Bosworth paid a special tribute to Ledger on what would have been his 40th birthday. "Doesn't seem so long ago we were all running around LA, shotgunned into Hollywood + popping off the new millennium's cork, having a laugh. It was a crazy time," the actress reminisced. "I was literally straight out of high school, feeling young & super shy and he was always so sweet within a surreal scene. I really, really would have loved to have known Heath today, at 40. No limits on what he would have accomplished."

Sharing her own memories of the beloved star, Bosworth described Ledger as "sensitive, gentle, kind, wickedly funny. Extraordinarily special."

"Time goes by," she continued, "his image still a teenage heartthrob. And his work. So brilliant + honest & he was just getting started. But to remember the Human. I was on the outer orbit. Imagine those close to the sun. Thinking of all the people who knew and loved him on this day. Man, you made one hell of a mark."
