On what he liked about Ennis Del Mar:

"I donít know, his potential, he had great potential to love. I think the one time you really see the potential is with his kids, his children, because thatís the one form of love heís really allowed to express, itís not dangerous to him. And with his wife it just wasnít really love, it was just what he thought should be love, and it was a routine that he slipped into because it was conventional. It was traditional, and obviously his love for Jack was forbidden and he hated himself for it, he punished himself for it. Essentially he was a homophobic man in love with another man. So that, I guess, I I always had faith in the love within him a lot more than he did. I think thatís what all the characters found in him too, was the potential within this masculine figure to be kind of vulnerable."

Ledger on becoming a father and whether it scares him:

"I wouldnít say itís as scary as the last five roles. I mean, itís definitely more exciting and a lot more beautiful, and itís definitely my greatest achievement. I now feel kind of connected to something a lot bigger than me. Itís beautiful, thereís something cosmic about it."

On the media:

"I don't read anything. I've only seen a couple of photos. Most of the time you don't even know the photographers are there -- and that's the scary thing. It's really strange and invading. But I don't let it bother me. I just try to find humor in it. I understand people's interest in our relationship. It's part of the game, I expect it." On dealing with public interest in his relationship with Heather Graham, Ian Spelling, April 30, 2001

"I'm on a walkabout. It's about collecting wisdom of emotions and heart and self and understanding. Being absolutely comfortable with your body and life and the earth, sun, and moon being the only truths. That's what my success is, getting underneath that." - Heath in Entertainment Weekly

"I'm Shy. People get confused. They think, as an actor you can get up and be confident on the screen. ĎWhy aren't you like this in normal life? Why can't you act in your social life?' Because I can't!" - Heath, Liz Smith Interview, NY Post (May, 2001)
