Public and Media Swarm as Heath is Moved

1/25/2008 7:15 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

In a crush of spectators, photographers and video cameras, the body of Heath Ledger was moved from the Frank E. Campbell Funeral Chapel in New York -- in an outpouring of curiosity and grief reminiscent of the deaths of John Lennon and Marilyn Monroe.

TMZ is told that Ledger's father is in New York, but he was not seen at the funeral parlor today. There are reports of a private service for Heath in L.A. this weekend. Ledger will be buried in Perth, Australia.

Heath fan    

the media here truly should be ashamed of themselves, what a pack of wild animals! and in the background you hear laughing , what a disgrace. You can really understand why this wonderful actor hated you all. I understand you have a job to do but in death show respect. I AM TRULY APPALLED BY THIS FOOTAGE!

First of all i want to give my deepest condolences to Heath's entire family and friends but especially to Michelle and Matilda. That little girl has lost her father and Michelle lost a person she onced shared a life with and with whom she had a daughter. Second, the next time you (TMZ) covers a deaths, have your reporters show some respect. They are heard laughing as if ther is a party going on. They were moving the body of a loved one. SHOW SOME RESPECT!!!

It's so very sad to hear of this tradegy. I thought he was a beautiful, talented individual and showed lots of promise for an amazing career. My heart goes out to him, his daughter and Michele, his family and friends. The causes may be natural but I can say that I have been on Ambien, Xanex, etc those meds alone will mess with you let alone taken together. Whatever the cause he will always be remembered as a talented, good-looking, actor, who left his world too soon. He lives on in his movies and his daugher.

So young so sad. How do you get over something like that. It all happened so fast. you didn´t even get one chance to fight for your life. How do you go on , knowing that you will never see him talk to him or touch him ever again??I write this with tears in my eyes.I feel so much pain for your family but also for you. You never got to grow old. I don´t know what happens after you pass away but i really hope you are somewhere where you feel happy. Ihope you can see the love that many people feel for you.I still can´t believe that you´re gone:(

Heath was an icon after he made Brokeback Mountain, now he is a legend like James Dean. RIP we love you Heath.

this is ridiculous    

I agree with many who have posted. The mere fact that some of the paps were laughing while taking this footage only provided a small look at them as individuals. It was completely appalling. Do they realize that his life on earth is over? He's going to miss so much, and his family and friends will miss even more. Do they have a concience?

To Steve: are an idiot!!!

He was acting!!! How is that a bad example to America? If he is such a bad example, then why did the critics, his peers, and many MANY people around the world PRAISE him for such an extraordinary work of art especially in Brokeback Mountain?

I am also wondering...did you know Heath Ledger? How did you know he was a self-centered man? Maybe he was trying to "survive" Hollywood and that was the only way he knew how to do that!!

I believe that why everyone is getting "hyped" about this, is because he died so young...and for a stupid accident! He had everything to live for...his daughter was a testament to that and he even said so in many interviews.

That is all I have. RIP Heath will be missed. You were a talented individual who perfected his craft. My heart goes out to Michelle, Matilda, and the Ledger family.
