It reminded me of Heath Ledgers passing in 2008, he was 28. I was a fan of his and heart broke to hear it was an overdose.
Who's fault is it? Everyone knows how destructive Hollywood is, but is it their responsibility to help celebrities with addictions? And how do you keep celebrities who make so much money and have almost anything thrown at their feet stay clear of destructive behavior?
Britney Spears, Lindsay Lohan and Amanda Bynes are probably the first names you think of when you think of Hollywood train wrecks. Probably because they do it publicly.
Can we please stop this? We've lost too many talented people to overdoses. Here are a few listed below.
