I’m still a kid. I’m like six years old. But it’s just a matter of wanting to get up, it’s just a big journey. I felt like when I left home that I was on a journey, and I still am.
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.”
"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
"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."
I’m in control of my life, not anyone in Hollywood. I only do this because I’m having fun. The day I stop having fun, I’ll just walk away. I wasn’t going to have fun doing a teen movie again. I don’t want to do this for the rest of my life. I don’t. I don’t even want to spend the rest of my youth doing this in this industry. There’s so much more I want to discover.
