I love how he often opened his home to friends to stay with him, and was quick to offer to make someone a meal.

I love the special touches he brought to the character of Ennis: his "chewing" and spitting, his "huhs" and "hunhs" (see below) and especially, his reversal of the shirts (Jack's sheltering Ennis's when first seen, Ennis's sheltering Jack's when last seen).

TWENTY OF 'EM!!  (I just brought this over with us from IMDb so everyone feels a little more at home).


1) 00:16:40 Yeah, and what if Aguirre finds out, huh?

2) 00:20:28 If you don't get stomped winnin' it, huh?

3) 00:36:09 Well, what're we supposed to do now, huh?

4) 00:36:36 What if we need work from him again, huh?

5) 00:37:56 Well, that snow barely stuck an hour. Huh?

6) 00:38:14 I don't need your money. Huh?

7) 00:42:03 Well, I guess I'll see you around, huh?

 00:43:18 What the f uck you lookin' at? Huh?

9) 00:49:00 I'll bet you could fix this place up real nice if you wanted to. Hmmm?

10) 00:49:39 This ain't so lonely now, is it? Hmmm?

11) 00:53:11 What about it? You wanna lose about half yer f uckin' teeth? Huh?

12) 01:02:18 Huh? (to Alma's "Maybe we could get a babysitter.")

13) 01:16:29 Well alright, long as I don't have to sing. Hmmm?

14) 01:20:04 What're you doing here, huh?

15) 01:41:42 You probably deserve it, huh?

16) 01:44:51 Jack, I gotta work. Huh?

17) 01:45:48 You been to Mexico, Jack Twist? Huh?

18) 01:48:35 Well now yer sleepin' on yer feet like a horse. (hmm?)

19) 02:03:47 He's a roughneck, huh?

I love Heath for his stunning character portrayals -- even without "actor" training. He was more "being" than "acting".

I love Heath because he carried Matilda on his shoulders.

I love Heath with the beautiful eyes.

I love Heath for eschewing the wild Hollywood lifestyle.

I love Heath for the Aussie accent.

I love Heath because of his sometimes shyness.

I love Heath for Heath.

I love Heath because he was considerate.

From an article posted by yb:


Months later, I learned that as Heath left the set that night, he quietly thanked each crew member for working late. Quietly. Not trying to make a point, just grateful for the chance to create that they'd given him.

« Reply #15 on: January 29, 2008, 12:10:20 am »

Yesterday-cold and rainy-I drove to L.A. to be with a friend as she scattered her father's ashes. We hiked down to a river, which is normally dry but because of the rain was flowing heavily. Each of us was given a rose to throw into the water with out thoughts. I plucked the petals off of mine and with each whispered a reason I love Heath. 10 Things I Love About You  Kiss I threw my petals into the water and with the small bud remaining I thanked him for giving me all of you.

I love Heath for his range. From 10 Things to Brokeback is quite a leap, and he did it beautifully.
I love Heath for his unique taste in fashion. I love the stripes, too. And silly hats.
I love Heath for his courage and integrity as an actor. Going against the grain, refusing to give in to one's image...that takes guts.

I saw that interview and I thought his reaction was adorable too. It was so Heath, I wanted to hug him. I could have kicked that interviewer, though, he wasted the precious time he had with Heath by asking stupid questions, when he could have asked him some really good questions.
