Young Heath Ledger Pt 5

Heath Ledger-Patriot003

EG: The story is that you walked out of the first audition.

HL: Yeah, I was doing a really crap reading, woke up on the wrong side of the bed, and I just, I was wasting my time, so I stood up and left, and said ‘I am extremely sorry and extremely embarrassed about doing a lousy job and I got to get out of here.’  And so I stood up, shook their hands and walked out. And I guess they just, were curious, you know rang back and said, ‘Hey come back and show us what you really can do then.’  And I was like ‘fuck!’

EG: Some people are sort of calling you the next Mel Gibson, potentially. How does that feel?

HL: I don’t know, it doesn’t feel anything. I don’t feel anything from it. You know it’s just what people call me, I guess, or have called me.  I don’t know, whatever. It would obviously be an honor, because he’s awesome. But, um, they’ve said that about everyone.

EG:  How would you compare your own relationship with your dad to your relationship with Mel in the film?

HL: Uh, I mean I took similar stands, but you know, my dad is like my best mate.  There are similar comparisons, but you know, only the cliché ones.

EG:  Your parents split up when you were young.

HL: Yeah when I was like ten, I guess.

EG:  Was that hard to deal with?

HL: No, it’s basically just so human, you know.  I’ve dumped out with my girlfriends in the past.  Same deal, bigger scale.

EG: What’s that from [pointing to a scab on his right index finger].

HL: That? That’s from…oh, I did this on an ax, on set. I peeled off a piece of skin. I’ve got a lot of battle scars lately from swords and shit. Sword fighting. Yeah, well there’s a lot of metal, you know, so you’re always chipping yourself and shit.

EG: So you’re looking to do something a little easier next time out?

HL: Yeah. [laughs] Yeah.

EG: I just watched Ten Things I Hate About You, which I thought came out really good.

HL: Did you?

E: Not as much like the Shakespeare as I thought it was going to be.

HL: Well, its not really Shakespeare.  It’s a loose adaptation.

EG: What was working with Julia Stiles like? I’m just about to interview her. It looked like you were having a lot of fun.

HL; Send her my love. Oh yeah, she was really great to work with.  You know, she’s a really smart girl.  She’s really smart, gorgeous, extremely level headed. She just has such a lovely wisdom about her, with her art, with her craft.  In life, in general, she has such wisdom. In a deep way, not like out of a book, she’s got it together in her head and her heart.
