A lawsuit filed on Friday against a Hollywood photo agency says two of its paparazzi supplied actor Heath Ledger with cocaine so they could secretly videotape him snorting the drug in a hotel room two years ago.

The suit says footage of the Ledger encounter, a portion of which aired briefly on two U.S. television shows days after his death in January — prompting an outcry in Hollywood — was sold to media outlets around the world, some in Britain and his native Australia.

The lawsuit claims the video has generated more than $1 million in revenues that should be forfeited under a California state law that requires paparazzi to disgorge any profits obtained through illegal activity.

  1. I’m sad that he died because of a drug overdose. My friends and I went to see the movie and it’s now my favorite movie. I wish he could have made more…RIP Heath. We miss you.

  2. also people remember he wasn’t just in batman.
    i mean yes that was his most striking performance but he also had oscar-winning performances in other films such as Brokeback Mountain, 10 Things I Hate About You, Candy and I’m Not There!

  3. Everyone on this site has bad grammar :L
    no offense lol
    or maybe you just don’t look at the keyboard while you are typing:P
    But anyway, that’s not important! What’s important is that Heath was an amazing actor and it just shows that death can creep up on anyone (N)
    RIP Heath xxxxx

  4. I am very sad because Heath Ledger was the best joker ever!! It would’ve been very cool if they made a third batman with Heath as the joker again. I really wish he didn’t die!

  5. Heath Ledger played the joker so well!!! He would have gotten lots of awards and money if he was still alive. RIP Heath!!!

  6. i just saw dark knight its deff as good as everyone said, and that was cuz of heath ledger. he was amazing and even though i should have hated the jker i sort of felt bad for him thats how good heath was im so sad he’s dead.

  9. Woaahhhhh!
    Just seen THE film , , a greatness to good for this world maybee??
    He is the BEST actor i have ever seen , which gave it a slight sinister twist, he was so good, at points you forgot he was acting!
    Actully AMAZING
    If i was an actor i would aspire to be him, a waste and a shame, but guess it was fate, at least he got his BIG break in time and that role will live on for internatity as will his name. Respect him so much, and will be deeply mourned.
    Who ever said [ ^^ half way up ] that the dark night should be re-named the joker ….. 100% agree!
    Thats what i refear to it as anyway
    Nobody will ever top that prefromance!
    Just wish i had a chance to meet him , im sure everyone did,.
    I also wished he had chance to see what a rection he had caused,
    I LOVE THE JOKER NOW!
    He is so dark and sinister …. yet he is so …… lovable :S ??
    And is it just me or is there a slightly hot side to him :S:S:S!?!?!

    ONLY HEATH COULD HAVE DONE THAT!!

    Guess it’s true :

    Only the GOOD die young.

    Well Done!!!

    Thoughts with family and friends

  10. reading everyone else’s post’s show me I’m not alone in missing this amazing actor.
    I burn my candle at both ends,
    It will not last the night.
    But ah, my foes, and oh, my friends,
    It gives a lovely light.
    This was Heath.

  11. its weird writing this considering that ….your not with us anymore but i feel that an actor like you on;y came once in a life time i will surely miss seeing your movies and your face …except for some pics of you from your biggest 12 yr old fan

  12. my god , when i heard heath ledger died it was devastating!
    i had just was the dark knight and i was blown away by his performance as the joker . i wanted to meet him sooo much only to find out the day before yesterday that he had died ..IN JANUARY it was like wow i will miss him every much like if he was my relative R.I.P Heath i know your entertaining god!!
    FRUM YOUR BIGGEST 12YR OLD FAN!

  13. Heath will be greatly missed by those who have been here watching all the way till the unimaginable end. You were 1 amongst many many wannabes. We love you hun.

  14. Heath Ledger is an actor of his own class. The Dark Knight has surpassed the superhero genre with Heath’s amazing Joker character. It is the best superhero movie of the year. Heath’s Joker being the greatest villain of all time, Heath Ledger deserves a posthumous academy award, wouldn’t you say so? At least that is the least thing the Hollywood people can do to honor him.

  15. REMEMBER HIM ALWAYS, BECAUSE HE WAS THE MOST AMASING PERSON I HAVE EVER MET. HE IS INSPIRING, AND GIVES SO MUCH. THESE ARE HARD TIMES FOR HIS FRIENDS AND FAMILY, BUT YOU HAVE TO BE STRONG FOR HIM. I FEEL YOUR PAIN AND HOPE THAT YOU ALL GET THROUGH THIS. HE WAS DESTINED FOR GREATNESS. AND HE WOULD HAVE ACHIEVED IT. I KNOW HE WOULD.

  17. He was the best Joker I have ever SEEN! It was just mind blowing! And seriously, The Dark Knight should be renamed to Joker, or something, because no one pays attention to batman. I mean, yeah hes a hero and all. But there was nothing special. Heath brought out something that no other person has before. He really did shine, and if he had continued, I KNOW that he would have been the best actor ever. I just recently searched him up, and saw how unapreciated he was in Australia. And finally, when he gets his big break, he dies. Maybe it was fate, but it wasnt fair. He deserved this big break. And I know that everyone that he left behind, must be devistated, and I feel their pain. I hope you get through this. And i know that Heath Ledger will ALWAYS be remembered, no matter what happens. I know that I will always remember him. He was a true inspiration to many. The fact that he played a villain or not, doesnt matter. Its how he played it that does. And it was astounding. Bravo… I mean that will all my heart.

  18. Excuse me, Britt, but you shouldnt be critisizing people for their grammar of not using WELL, when YOU dont even use it correctly. Oh yeah, I said it. What you gonna do now???
    And some people dont give a shit about grammar, so shut ur mouth, please… thank you XD

    p.s. Heath Ledger was probably not ONE OF the best, but THE BEST actor ever. If he had lived, then people would have DEFINATELY recognized that. He is just amazing.

  19. aw! it makes me tear up when i see one of his movies! he was a great actor and he was cute! i cant believe he died. this is why you dont take different pills all at once. 😥

  20. I never heard of heath ledger until my friend flipped the channel to one of his movies. She said, “So sad that hes dead” It was shocking to me someone so young died so young. I later found out he played the joker and i was amazed of how he played the joker with such pride in what he was doing. I think of him as another family member in my mind. Constantly thinking of him. Bless his family and friends that they may be strong through tough times.

  21. I think that Heath pulled of The Joker better than anyone I have ever seen play the Joker. I’m not one to be all obsessive over Heath, but The Batman film has opened my eyes to how good of an actor he is. He played a scary charachter. Yet there was something really appealing about him. I didnt realise how much I loved The Joker until I saw that film. It was incredible. x

  22. The dark knight was the best movie I’ve ever seen in my life I don’t even like batman that much but the joker has always been my favorite villan heath ledger did the best job I’ve ever seen at playing the role of the joker it was the most beautiful acting I’ve ever seen he really knew how to set the mood in each scene heath will be missed and my heart goes out to his friends and family we will keep un in our prayers.

  23. Heath was an incredible actor and seemed to be a beautiful person who will be deeply missed by his fans.

  24. I saw Batman two days in a raw because of exclusively excellent acting. I thought he cought replace Jack Nickolson with a unique character of his own. I looked him up on internet to learn more about him, and I expected to discover a new Hollywood genius actor. I found out he was dead… I don’t know the guy, and I mourn him deeply like a family member…

  25. in reply to vrf’s comment on 7-24-08, your grammar is horrid.
    “Poor Heath, he acted so WELL” wouls be proper.

    And I agree, he was an amazing actor and he will be missed.

  26. It crushes me to think that this guy is dead, he is definitly one of the best hollywood actors ever, he acting is just outstanding.

    The way that he impersonates the character give the character more than it needs.

    It bought me the chills when I watched him playing the Joker, to some point I actually felt like crying.

    May he be blessed, RIP.
