Naomi Watts remembered ex-boyfriend Heath Ledger on his 10-year death anniversary. Ledger was found dead in his apartment on January 22nd, 2008 by his masseuse after the actor did not respond for their 3 PM appointment. "Thinking about this attractive soul today".

Ledgers friend, Gyllenhaal said the bond that he shared with his "Brokeback Mountain" co-star could not be put into "sound bite or can it in three-minute interview".

She was just one of the stars who paid tribute to Ledger on the anniversary of his death.


Philipps, who is best friends with Ledger's former partner, Michelle Williams, posted an emotional video on her Instagram Story after hearing "Time to Pretend" by MGMT in the auto. The 28-year-old actor's bright, burgeoning career was cut short by an accidental prescription drug overdose, just six months before "The Dark Knight" hit theaters.

"Heath is hugely important in the lives of my children", she said. "It's especially hard to see his moving images on screen and hear his voice-something which we as a family have had to learn to cope with constantly", Kate revealed.

"We keep in constant contact with Michelle and Matilda and visit frequently", Kate told Australia's Who magazine. She posted an emotional Instagram Story reminiscing about the actor while listening to MGMT's "Time to Pretend".


"He was always a delight", she recalled. It came out after he passed away and I remember when it came out, because (I thought) it made me think of him. "But a lot of it was about unpredictability, and I think he wanted to play his cards a little close to the chest".

Holding back tears, Busy continued: 'And for some reason I just... every time I... hear this song, I... and I was just... it's weird, that's all'. Still, she says, it's bittersweet to know that her brother is immortalized in TV and on film. Explaining Ledger's creepy voice in the film, Nolan added: "He would very gradually reveal to me the "voice" and the way he was going to do things - but not in one go, like, 'Here's the Joker'". "I still feel the loss of such a unique, sensitive soul".
