'I really, really would have loved to have known Heath today,' writes the 'Blue Crush' star as she remembers the 'Brokeback Mountain' actor who died from an accidental drug overdose in 2008.

AceShowbiz - Actress Kate Bosworth took time out to honour her late pal Heath Ledger on what would have been his 40th birthday on Thursday, April 04.

The 36-year-old hit Hollywood at the same time as the Australian hunk and they used to run in the same circles.

Remembering her friend, who died from an accidental drug overdose in 2008, the "Blue Crush" star took to Instagram and wrote: "Doesn't seem so long ago we were all running around L.A., shotgunned into Hollywood + popping off the new millennium's cork, having a laugh. It was a crazy time."

"I was literally straight out of high school, feeling young & super shy and he was always so sweet within a surreal scene. I really, really would have loved to have known Heath today, at 40. No limits on what he would have accomplished..."

Doesn’t seem so long ago we were all running around LA, shotgunned into Hollywood + popping off the new millennium’s cork, having a laugh. It was a crazy time. I was literally straight out of high school, feeling young & super shy and he was always so sweet within a surreal scene. I really, really would have loved to have known Heath today, at 40. No limits on what he would have accomplished. Here is what I remember: he was sensitive, gentle, kind, wickedly funny. Extraordinarily special. Time goes by, his image still a teenage heartthrob. And his work. So brilliant + honest & he was just getting started. But to remember the Human. I was on the outer orbit. Imagine those close to the sun. Thinking of all the people who knew and loved him on this day. Man, you made one hell of a mark. xo
