Heath Ledger Quotes On Life

It's like anything in life, visualizing the old man you're going to become: As long as you have a clear picture of that - the life you want to lead - eventually you'll probably get there. — Heath Ledger

I'm shy. People get confused. They think as an actor you can get up and be confident on the screen. Why aren't you like this in normal life? Why can't you act in your social life? 'Because I can't!' — Heath Ledger

I apologize for my terrible interview skills. I wasn't prepared to expose stories about something so special and wonderfully private that is happening in my life. I guess a part of me wishes that I'd never have to and that maybe I could protect this special time. I was dreaming. — Heath Ledger

I'm an extremely private dude and all this is happening so damn quick. I really haven't had any time to rationalize it. But it's nothing that I'm going to let freak me out or take control of me or my thoughts or my real life. — Heath Ledger

I'm born to be a father. And I've been looking forward to this all my life. — Heath Ledger

I'm in control of my life, not anyone in Hollywood. — Heath Ledger

If having true love and love that is expressive and free outside of work affects a project where you have to be restrained and in denial and fixed and closed off. This doesn't mean you go out and just destroy your love outside of your life and kind of mirror your movie. — Heath Ledger

We're actors at the end of the day. I don't take it home with me. My experience outside of work, I love... when I hear wrap, it's the most exciting part of my day. I'm the first to have my make-up off, in the car, out. I've gotta go home. I want to get back to my life. I love it back there. — Heath Ledger

May I ask your name, my lady? Or perhaps angels have no names, only beautiful faces. — Heath Ledger

I'm very comfortable with horses. I love horses and I have grown up around farm-hands. There's something very universal about anyone who's on horseback night and day. When you get off that horse, you are still walking as if there's still a horse between your legs. — Heath Ledger

It's a little uncomfortable doing love scenes in armor, but, you know, when the heat's on, the heat's on. — Heath Ledger

You learn more about yourself through your child, I guess. — Heath Ledger

I love acting. Oh, God, I love it. But all this fame and all this bullshit attention. I'm not supernatural. I've done nothing extremely special to deserve the position. It happens every couple of years, and it's happened to hundreds of people before me. — Heath Ledger

If you are just safe about the choices you make, you don't grow. — Heath Ledger

I'm not good at future planning. I don't plan at all. I don't know what I'm doing tomorrow. I don't have a day planner and I don't have a diary. I completely live in the now, not in the past, not in the future. — Heath Ledger

I like to see films that come out with lower budgets because you're forced into using your imagination. You don't have everything at your fingertips. You have to create it from scratch. — Heath Ledger

I've never had high expectations of my work and I certainly am not going to let that plague my thoughts. I'm just going to continue to choose what feels right for me at the time and go with it. — Heath Ledger

My mom and my dad never pushed me into performing. They never prohibited me from trying anything, or being anything. They never restricted me in any way. For which I'll be forever grateful. — Heath Ledger

The first memory I have, anyway, I guess - I think it was my second birthday and the cake came out with the candles and I was very excited and I was, like, "Oh! A cake!" and then my cousin blew out the candles. I was so disappointed. It just broke my heart. And so that's stamped in my brain. — Heath Ledger

I do think that drugs and alcohol have been glorified and exoticized in such a way that it gets into the art world. — Heath Ledger

But the paparazzi are quite malicious and vocal and really rude, ... And they camped outside of my house, so I started throwing eggs at them, lobbing them at rocks next to them. — Heath Ledger

The Australian sense of humor is very dry, sarcastic, and very undercover. Like if I tell any jokes in America, people just think I'm serious! So I just quit telling any jokes whatsoever. — Heath Ledger

I'm sure drugs and alcohol perhaps would inspire new thoughts, but it's certainly not something that I use as a tool or a mechanism to create. — Heath Ledger

I feel like I've never been in a film that people have liked before. — Heath Ledger

You have to be willing to be manipulated in the first place because you can either recognize that in your director and then fight it because you don't trust them, but I'm not going to let them manipulate me. Or you think they're on to something and that they're manipulating something out of you which is interesting and new. — Heath Ledger

The Oscars are a really strange concept to me, that films and acting can be competing against each other. We're not running the same race. It's like we're all doing different sports in fact. — Heath Ledger

I have never had great expectations of my performance or of a film. I try not to think about the outcome. If you look that far ahead, it sort of taints your choices as an actor.

Then, once a project is done, I tend to forget about it until it comes out. — Heath Ledger

There is no Yoda-there's no one who points you in the right direction. You've got to figure that out by yourself. — Heath Ledger

I do keep pre-occupied. — Heath Ledger

I'm not a big fan of western movies and I really don't like cowboy-indian movies. I have never watched them. — Heath Ledger

I don't even want to spend the rest of my youth doing this in this industry. There's so much more I want to discover. — Heath Ledger

I wasn't going to have fun doing a teen movie again. — Heath Ledger

I never really cared much for Hollywood or movies. But the curiosity for filmmaking, and expanding myself as an actor and my curiosity for people and portraying them, just has grown. And that's from simply being involved in the industry. But it was never a goal of mine as a kid. — Heath Ledger

I didn't want to raise my child in Hollywood. — Heath Ledger

I like to do something I fear. — Heath Ledger
