It's hard to believe, but it's been almost five years since Heath Ledger passed away. The Dark Knight Rises actor died on January 22, 2008 of an accidental overdose of prescription drugs and his parents are speaking out about his tragic death in the Australian magazine New Idea.

"It has been an extremely difficult five years," says his mother Sally (excerpted through People), "as not a day goes by when we don’t feel the immense loss of Heath."

Heath leaves behind seven-year-old daughter Matilda who he shared with his ex-girlfriend Michelle Williams.

"Matilda is indeed very much like her dad. However, she also possesses the beauty of her [mother] – lucky girl," Sally reveals.

[Matilda] "has the same walk as Heath and is such a respectful little kid," Kim Ledger (Heath's father) says.

Although Michelle lives in Brooklyn, NY with boyfriend Jason Segel and Heath's family lives in Australia, they keep in touch as much as possible.

Kim adds: "Our family has the most wonderful relationship with Matilda and Michelle. We talk frequently and visit as often as we can."
