What does Mary-Kate Olsen have to do with anything?

Here's a timeline of Heath Ledger's masseuse finding him dead on Tuesday afternoon. Why on earth did she call Mary-Kate Olsen three times before she called 911?

2:45 p.m. [Diana] Wolozin shows up for [Heath] Ledger's massage appointment and knocks on his door.

3 p.m. She calls his cell phone to wake him up.

She sets up her massage table.

3:17 p.m. She calls [Mary-Kate] Olsen. The conversation lasts 49 seconds.

3:20 p.m. She calls Olsen again. The conversation lasts one minute and 39 seconds.

3:24 p.m. She calls Olsen a third time. The conversation lasts 21 seconds.

3:26 p.m. She calls 911.

3:33 p.m. Paramedics arrive and go up in the elevator to the apartment with Olsen's security guards (whom Olsen had called to check out the scene).

Paramedics do not allow the security guards into the bedroom where Ledger is.

3:34 p.m. Wolozin calls Olsen a fourth time. The length of that conversation is unknown.

3:36 p.m. Ledger is declared dead.


It reads like strange police poetry. Or, staged as a fifty minute existential one-act, where our protagonist, confronted with a perplexing reality, for a dramatic ten minutes, can only think to repeatedly call Mary-Kate Olsen.

And, amazingly sadly, my favorite director has the worst luck around:
According to Us Weekly, the Terry Gillian production of 'The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus', which Ledger was partially though filming, has been scrapped and everyone let go.

From imdb FAQ


"How will the death of Heath Ledger affect this film?"

"Us Weekly had reported that the production was canceled. But now they report it will continue with Johnny Depp replacing Heath Ledger. But this is still to be officially confirmed."
