As a tribute to Heath Ledger, his fellow actors opened up to the April issue of Interview magazine, about what the talent was really like.
In her first interview since his death, Michelle Williams, Heath's former fiancée and mother to his child, refers to her ex as "vulnerable."
"I think the interesting thing about Heath, which maybe people have only really fully discovered in his death, is how vulnerable he was,” Michelle said. “You can pick it up on it in his performances, but it’s easy to overlook because he was so physical and beautiful and strong and masculine, but there was always that underlying sensitivity. That’s who he was.”
Michelle said Heath, who died on a an accidental overdose of prescription meds, including sleep aids, always had trouble shutting his thoughts off. “For as long as I’d known him, he had bouts with insomnia,” she says. “He had too much energy. His mind was turning, turning turning — always turning.”
“He had a talent for everything that he put his mind to," she remembered. "He didn’t know limits."
