Phillips Struggling With Deaths

Actress BIJOU PHILLIPS is struggling to cope with the deaths of BRAD RENFRO and HEATH LEDGER because both actors were too talented to die in their 20s. The Almost Famous star took off to the Sundance Film Festival in Utah in an effort to escape the tragedy of her "brother" Brad Renfro's death, only to be faced with the passing of another pal. Speaking to MTV News at the festival, the actress said, "It's just crazy. Two young talented actors die in their sleep? It's just not cool. I don't know what's going on, but it's got to stop." Phillips, who co-starred in three films with Renfro, insists his death - at 25 - has left her "devastated". She adds, "Brad and I have been working together since we were 13. We've been hanging out with each other since we were little kids." Renfro was found dead in his Los Angeles apartment last week (ends15Jan08), while Ledger's body was found in his New York home on Tuesday (22Jan08).
