Very sensitive. I wonder how long it'll take for your coldness to come back and bite you in the ass, douchebag.

Let's not jump to conclusions - according to other sites the pills were possibly over the counter sleeping pills... Let the authorities do their job and then we can see what really happened.

Such a waste of an incredible actor. People need to wake up and realize that they're not invincible. Drugs can kill you. Your luck will run out. (Hello, Amy Winehouse!!)
We've lost enough talented and wonderful people because of drugs. It's not worth it.
Horribly, horribly sad.
