      That is an awesome picture of Heath Bruce.  It is like a moving emotion of thoughts.
I guess that is what made him so great.  He could look sad and curious, happy and soulful,
tired and lustful all at once.  This is a wonderful example of not being able to pin down the
exact emotion on it.  You have to interpret it by your own minds decision. 

             What an awesome thread this is.  You have outdone yourself here.



     Beautiful mind

About his performances:

"I always want to pull myself apart and dissect it."

"I always go through the process of hating it, hating myself, thinking I've fooled them, I canít actually do this."

"I like to do something I fear. I like to set up obstacles and defeat them. I like to be afraid of the project. I always am. When I get cast in something, I always believe I shouldn't have been cast. I fooled them again. I can't do it. I don't know how to do it."

On Brokeback Mountain:

"I heard a while ago that West Virginia was going to ban it. But that's a state that was lynching people only 25 years ago, so that's to be expected."

On how Heath and Jake began to fatigue of promoting Brokeback Mountain:

ďI didnít really expect anyone would be shocked by the movie. I didnít expect such prejudice or ignorance, and we had to go through a full year of the movie winning, and losing, awards Ė sitting there.Ē
