But his successes, including an Oscar nomination for his role as a gay cowboy in Brokeback Mountain, came at a terrible price. Ledger, whose sudden death on Tuesday at the age of 28 shocked the world, was tormented by self-doubt, plagued by anxiety and in his final days hinted at the turmoil that threatened to overwhelm him.
Why did my celebrity idol take their own life?
The star's body is taken away from his New York flat. He admitted taking two sleeping pills that would knock out a normal man for eight hours. He was shattered by the break-up of his relationship to his Brokeback Mountain co-star Michelle Williams, which took him away from their two-year-old daughter Matilda. He turned down so many great roles that he earned a reputation for being difficult. Ledger was a contradiction wrapped in a paradox: an acclaimed actor who doubted his talent and a movie star who loathed attention. Heath was troubled before he died.
They wanted him to audition for a new blockbuster — Spider-Man. Panic overwhelmed him. It was a full-on anxiety attack. Yet Ledger fought not to be turned into a heart-throb.
With Michelle Williams and Matilda. Idol anxiety.

Summary This interdisciplinary collection of essays addresses idolatry, a contested issue that has given rise to both religious accusations and heated scholarly disputes. Idol Anxiety brings together insightful new statements from scholars in religious studies, art history, philosophy, and musicology to show that idolatry is a concept that can be helpful in articulating the ways in which human beings interact with and conceive of the things around them.
It includes both case studies that provide examples of how the concept of idolatry can be used to study material objects and more theoretical interventions.
