"I love the vibrant cities and the enthusiasm Americans have.....for America. I like to hang out in Manhatten where it's an easy walk to great theatre, cinema, or a Starbuck's Coffee House. I could easily make this my base," - Heath Ledger 2000.
"I don't celebrate love and friendship by giving stuff to people. That's why I don't believe in marraige. I don't believe you should have to prove your love by giving someone a gold ring with a diamond on it.,"-Heath Ledger, 2001.
"I'm still a six-year-old kid and I always will be." Heath Ledger 2001
"I said 'I'm going to do this. I'm going to leave and become an actor.' Just like that. My parents were very understanding. They let me follow my dreams because I think they knew that even if they said no, I was the kind of kid who was going to do it anyway. Maybe it was a quest for me. I wanted to see the world, to experience new things. I felt, in a way, like life was passing me by." Heath Ledger
"I was ok with it(My Parents being divorced), because it made me realize that my parents were human." Heath Ledger
"Acting is really about self-exploration. There's a part of you in every character, and if you're lucky, you talk away knowing yourself a little better. I'm a big believer in breaking things down, getting to the core. When you do that, it puts everything into perspective." Heath Ledger
"Maybe I'm not too typical, or maybe I'm just a daft. I dont know- i tend to analyze things a lot. I think too much."Heath Ledger
"It's weird, you know? You dont wake up every morning and think 'Okay, I'm hot.' That doesnt concern me." Heath Ledger
"I didnt want to do more teen flicks because its so easy to get trapped there. I think Australians have this independent streak. I want to always have the control to say no when i dont think something is right for me. I want to be able to walk away." Heath Ledger
"What appealed to me is not so much that WIlliam changes his stars, but what he learns in doing so. He goes for gold- the nobility and fame- but he learns that real nobility is finding your head and your heart." Heath Ledger
