MTV was at Sundance when news of Heath Ledger’s passing hit, so naturally they asked Bijou Phillips about it because she’s also a famous person.  Sorta.

Somehow, she manages to put into words the things we’ve all been thinking and feeling. 

"I’ve met him a few times… It’s just not cool," she said.

Not since Abraham Lincoln’s letter to Ephraim and Phoebe Ellsworth has one person’s passing elicited such a deluge of eloquence.  I can only hope that words of equal beauty will grace my own passing, and assuage the suffering of the thousands of models I’ve pleasured when I selflessly sacrifice my life to save a litter of newborn kittens from a band of bloodthirsty terrorists.
