On turning down big Hollywood projects offered him:

"It wasn't a hard decision for me.

It was hard for everyone else around me to understand. Agents were like, 'You're crazy,' my parents were like, 'Come on, you have to eat."'

Associated Press 2001.

ON BEING THE NEXT MEL GIBSON:

‘‘Last time I was back in town Hugh Jackman was the next Mel Gibson. The time before that it was Guy Pearce. I think Russell Crowe has been the next Mel Gibson too. I just switch off.''

ON BROKEBACK MOUNTAIN:

‘‘I think it would be unfair to the gay community to say it's not a gay story. That gay relationship is not a virus. It's not a disease. It's that a soul within a vessel falls in love with another soul within another vessel, in this case in the form of a man.''

On filming Brokeback Mountain.


It's rare to come upon a script so beautifully written. But that shoot was just torturous at times. It was a really tough, lonely shoot... Ennis has no confidence and he's lonely, so I wanted him to be slumped and uncomfortable and ... just very bleak. I wanted him to be a clenched fist; and therefore my mouth became clenched, too. It affects you quite a lot, you know? It really does. You go home, switch off, have a glass of wine and relax. But the second you lay down and go to sleep, you close your eyes and go through everything that happened the whole day. I feel like a sponge when I'm working. But I had a real sense of accomplishment once I'd finished."

This one of the first threads I've ventured into but because I didn't cry today (not much) I felt as though I could manage it. So much for not crying today. Thank you thank you thank you for bringing Heath's number one fan closer to him. Really. Thank. You.  :-*
