Two Heath

I started to do a black and white montage for this sad anniversary, but then thought it would be more fitting and more uplifting to see Heath's beautiful, mischievous smile. I hope he is resting and smiling in peace.











Here's the Red Cross ad appeal for Haiti:

Has it been two years already? I still miss him. What beautiful pictures that you chose for this post, thank you.

Fantastico Heath !

Carla said...

Heath was such a free spirited soul - I see him smiling somewhere...

Beautiful pictures - I love the one with him and Jake together.

UltraViolet said...

Thakns, guys. It's hard to believe it's been two years.

I went quickly through my Oprah tape and did not see the Haiti ad.

Has anyone heard form Agent K? Haven't seen her in a while. Hope she checks in with a London Brothers report :)

JF said...

Heath - gone, but never forgotten.

It's great Jake will participate in the Haiti telethon.

bobbyanna said...

Thanks for these UV. It means a lot. More than I can say. I love the series that first one is part of, and I love him in the denim jacket from that first (sexy)Vanity Fair cover shoot. He had a sweet, joyful spirit.

I embedded the Haiti PSA on the front page of the blog.

Here it is again:

Bless you for this wonderful tribute. I was just talking someone about Heath as we were coming back from watching Brothers. She said, "definitely Gone too soon."

I still miss him - probably always will.

After waiting two years to see this film, finally. Brothers was fabulous though I really needed a massage after watching it, my neck was so tense. Really amazing performances and a great film by Jim. I wanna see it again, unlike Avatar.

There have been a few tweets of Jake in the Bay Area, so I'm not sure he'll be manning the phones for the telethon. Not that he can't get back to LA quickly, but one of the tweets was from just about a half hour ago.

Either he's not really there, he's rushing to get back, he pre-taped something or he won't be participating.

Updated the post with the Red Cross ad.

UltraViolet said...

FL, that is so weird - I thought I did that!

I was in there and thought, I didn't think I pasted the code in yet!

Chica said...

What a beautiful tribute to Heath UV. I love all the photos, especially the one with Jake. I still think of him, what a tragic loss.

Thanks or posting the viseo, I saw the tweets too and wondered if he would be at the telethon or maybe taped something.

Monica said...

Great choice of photos. All are wonderful, especially with Jake.
Two years and still is so hard to believe.

Thanks for the video.

get real said...

RIP Heath...we miss you.

Lovely tribute, thanks.

Interesting to hear Jake my be in the Bay Area. If that is true he still could get back to LA. Or as UV said he could have pre-taped something or they could have a live set up in SF or he won't be participating. We will see soon.

Thanks for the Red Cross video.

bobbyanna said...

I'm getting ready to watch the telethon. I don't have a laptop, so I can't do "live blog" or whatever:)

Extra said...

Beautiful pictures of a beautiful and talented man, inside and out.

RIP Heath, you are missed so much.

Thanks for posting the video, he can still make it to the telethon if he was spotted in Northern CA earlier.

The telethon is starting...

Monica said...

I'm watching on CNN.
I saw several celebrities on the phone: Daniel Day Lewis, Anna Kendrick, Ben Afflecck and others. It was very fast!
I don't know if Jake is there!

Office of Nancy Pelosi said...

I still can't believe Heath is gone. Thank you so much UV for this tribute to Heath.

Springsteen just did an amazing rendition of We Shall overcome.

They did a quick scan and I saw Tim Robbins, Meg Ryan, Mel Gibson, DD Lewis and Reese, no Jake yet.

bobbyanna said...

Well. Guess Reese got a featured spot.
I will say no more. :)

Chica said...

I saw that too Bobbyanna, she is sitting next to Steven Spielberg.

A saw Tobey, Leo, Julia Roberts, Ellen Degeneres, NP Harris and G. Sidale.

get real said...

Matt Damon and Clint Eastwood are live from SF, maybe Jake will be there with them.

Monica said...

Clint Eastwood and Matt Damon spoke directly of San Francisco. Maybe Jake will be speaking there too.

Leonor E. G. Núñez said...

Day of emotions! Resembling Heath and ... to see Reese in the same video that Jake filmed...
Thanks!

FluorescentLamp said...

Justin Timberlake is just so talented. What a beautiful version of Hallelujah. With Matt Morris of Bon Iver.

get real said...

FL, Justin did do an excellent job on such a beautiful song. I did not know who that was singing with him, thanks for the info.

FluorescentLamp said...

Oh correction, just Matt Morris. Not of Bon Iver. I guess he's on Justin's record label.

Sheba baby said...

That photo of Jake and Heath is one of my favorites, love all the photos on this post. He was so talented, and had such a free and beautiful spirit.

Miss you always Heath.

I must have cried 3 times during the telethon so far.

Thanks for posting the Red cross PSA.

That was a beautiful version of Hallelujah FL.

FluorescentLamp said...

Also, do we know the significance of everyone wearing brown?

Anonymous said...

Beautiful job by Justin & Matt.
And Jennifer Hudson. Right off thought - who is that. Had not seen any recent pictures of her. But the second she started to sing knew it was her. Amazing.

FluorescentLamp said...

Just because it's so beautiful

JT and Matt Morris - Hallelujah

bobbyanna said...

Thanks, FL. I thought JT & Matt did an amazing job on one of my favorite songs. For some reason, that song always reminds me of Heath.

I enjoyed Madonna, too. I liked that she was upbeat, sang one of her old hits and made it relevant.
Kid Rock,Sheryl Crowe & Keith Urban, Mary J. Blige, Bono, Jay-Z & Rihanna, Christina Aguilera,they all did a fantastic job, too.

Sway on MTV is doing a post show and said Al Pacino was on the phones. I saw Penelope Cruz and Drew Barrymore said "Mr. Clooney " asked her to be AD for the show.:)

bobbyanna said...

Ewan McGregor, John Cusack, Mark Wahlberg were there, too. It's very possible Jake was there and being low key like so many of the others were, too.

FluorescentLamp said...

I think if Jake were there and doing the phonebank thing, we would have seen many many tweets of OMG I JUST GOT JAKE GYLLENHALL ON THE PHONE!!@#2!!111

The fact that there were at least three tweets of him in Berkeley today/tonight makes me think he was in Berkeley today/tonight. ;-)

bobbyanna said...

True. Getty is posting pictures.

lawgoddess said...

Very nice Heath pictures, I like to remember him smiling.

And thanks for the PSA link.
