Brokeback Director Ang Lee's Statement on Heath Ledger

Ang Lee, the Academy-Award winning director of 2005’s Brokeback Mountain, which starred Heath Ledger, has just released a statement concerning Mr. Ledger, who was found dead yesterday.

Mr. Lee said:

“Working with Heath was one of the purest joys of my life. He brought to the role of Ennis more than any of us could have imagined – a thirst for life, for love, and for truth, and a vulnerability that made everyone who knew him love him. His death is heartbreaking."
