Heath to an unnamed director the day after Brokeback won three Academy Awards (but didn't earn Best Picture or any awards for its actors), in the context of the fatigue he experienced promoting the film:

"I may never make another good movie again."

About making Brokeback Mountain:

"Well, I met Michelle, and that quite honestly is the most exciting thing about this movie for me is uh I got a family out of it of my own."

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.  :-*

Bruce, This thanks is long overdue.I simply could not pluck up the courage to read all of this till today.

It is a truly lovely thread and I cannot imagine how much work it must have taken. It had me weeping even after all this time but a massive thankyou all the same.

I can't believe he really thought BBM was either the best or worst film he had made.So self effacing.What a terrible loss,enough said.

Heath Ledger in an interview with the BBC:

"What is it about wrangling Jake Gyllenhaal up in the mountains that frightens me? Just that! But it obviously doesn't scare me away because I'm doing it. Aren't we at the stage these days when it just doesn't ******* matter? It's a story of love and it's a story between two people. If people can't get over that and just accept it as a story, then that's their problem. I'm big enough and brave enough to do it in the fact that being brave is having to answer questions like that."

Regarding getting BbM actually made:

"There was this kind of industry-manufactured fear and risk factor that was surrounding the script."
