RIP Heath Ledger (April 4th 1979 - January 22nd 2008)
“When I die, my money’s not going to come with me. My movies will live on - for people to judge what I was as a person. I just want to stay curious.”
I’m nothin’. I’m nowhere. I can’t stand being like this no more.
“Working with Heath was one of the purest joys of my life. He brought to the role of Ennis more than any of us could have imagined – a thirst for life, for love, and for truth, and a vulnerability that made everyone who knew him love him. Losing him was heartbreaking.” Director Ang Lee on working with Heath Ledger
All of this is so insignificant. In the grand scale of things, there have been so many before who have been in this position. I’m just another one. Life is so short. It’s like we’re already gone, really, in retrospect.
“Making ‘Brokeback’ wasn’t difficult, at all. I started riding horses when I was a kid in Australia, so the horse riding in the movie was nothing. The challenge wasn’t the gay aspect of the movie. In fact, in this year, 2005, I can’t understand why anyone, agent, manager, publicist, would even question any actor taking any gay role.”
