Model Helena Christensen is speaking out following the shocking death of her former flame, Heath Ledger. "I was on my way over to pay him a visit when I found out," she told Women's Wear Daily. "He was such a special and genuine person, so extraordinarily talented because he was so raw and honest with his feelings. He was so full of life, so electric... this is immensely sad," she adds. Helena goes on to say that the Brokeback Mountain star was "a sweet, smart and talented young man and he had many friends. My heart goes out to his family. I am just beyond sad at this point, and shocked."
