A year ago today (THURSDAY JANUARY 22), acclaimed actor Heath Ledger died from an accidental overdose of prescription drugs at his apartment in Manhattan. The tragedy sent shockwaves through the showbiz world, as Ledger's performance in Brokeback Mountain had already seen him nominated for a Best Actor Oscar - with rumours he had fared even better as The Joker in Batman movie The Dark Knight, due for release just months after his death. Here, we present our gallery of photos of a man widely considered to be the most promising actor of his generation. - New York City, USA - Thursday 22nd January 2009

* DESIGNER LIED TO PARKER ABOUT 'THIRD-HAND DRESS' SARAH JESSICA PARKER is fuming after she was tricked into wearing a third-hand dress to the New York premiere of SEX AND THE CITY: THE MOVIE. Designer Olivier Theyskens assured the actress no one had worn or been photographed in the Nina Ricci gown before she slipped into it for the star-studded bash at Manhattan's Radio City Music Hall last week (28May08). She only later discovered Lindsay Lohan wore the same dress for a high-profile photo shoot for Harpers Bazaar magazine last year (07), and socialite Lauren Santo Domingo showed it off to photographers at the Costume Institute Gala in New York just last month (May08). And Parker is upset by her treatment: In the big picture, this is not important, but there is a relationship between the entertainment industry and fashion. We've watched sales dwindle and we've watched people be less inclined to spend money on clothes. Look, my affection for the dress hasn't changed, but what they did was so short-sighted. It's just unethical and disappointing that they would allow the dress to be worn again. She adds of Theyskens, I just wish it had been handled differently and they had been straight about it. (IG/NYT/MT) Lindsay Lohan wearing a silver ballgown with Batman LOHAN'S HEROES The men in Lindsay Lohan's life will be green with envy when they see these pictures. The actress has reportedly dumped her lover for Hollywood hunk Heath Ledger. But the actor who is set to play the Joker in the new Batman movie will be stunned to see there is room for more than one superhero in the 21-year-old's life. Lohan posed with her favourite superheros, including Spider-Man, Robin and the Incredible Hulk, for German fashion photographer Peter Lindbergh. The photos will feature in a 2008 edition of Harpers Bazaar magazine. (LJ/WN/MT) Los Angeles, California - 04.12.07

* HEATH LEDGER DEAD Movie star HEATH LEDGER has been found dead in his New York apartment. The actor was declared dead by medics at his Broome Street, Soho apartment at 3.30pm on Tuesday (22Jan08), according to the New York Police Department. A police spokesperson reveals Ledger was discovered by his housekeeper, after he failed to answer the door to a masseuse he had booked to give him a massage. Pills were found strewn around his apartment. As WENN goes to press, there are no more details of his death. The Australian Brokeback Mountain star, 28, was just about to start promoting the Batman Begins sequel The Dark Knight, in which he plays movie villain The Joker. Ledger moved to New York to be with his then-fiancee Michelle Williams. The couple split last year (07). The actor leaves behind a two-year-old daughter, Matilda Rose.

* WILLIAMS RETURNS TO WORK AFTER LEDGER DEATH Grieving actress MICHELLE WILLIAMS has returned to work on a film set just yards from where her former fiancee HEATH LEDGER was found dead. The 27-year-old filmed scenes for her new film Mammoth on set in Manhattan, New York on Monday (11Feb08). The former Dawson's Creek star was shooting the scenes for the upcoming picture in Sweden when she heard of her former lover's death last month (Jan08). But Williams' friends fear the Brokeback Mountain star has returned to work too soon after Ledger's funeral in Australia on Saturday (08Feb08). A source tells the New York Post, She looked heartbroken, but did a good job keeping her composure. She was also bleary-eyed, but she had a job to do, and she did it. Ledger was found dead in his New York apartment on 22 January (08), aged just 28. Toxicology results released on Wednesday (06Feb08) revealed he was killed by an accidental overdose of prescribed medications. (LJ/WNWCNP/MJ) Michelle Williams has returned to work on the film set of 'Mammoth' in SoHo New York City, USA - 12.02.08
