Mel and Heath

Heath Ledger Interview
By EC Gladstone

EG: What’s the last movie you saw?

HL; Uh, Man on the Moon, actually, on the plane. It was alright.  You know, Jim Carrey was good.  I don’t know much about um, Andy Kaufman, because we didn’t really get a lot of him in Australia.  So I don’t really have anything to run him off.

EG: Listen to any music?

HL: Oh loads I mean, my favorite kind of stuff, I guess, is like Pixies, and Beck, and uh, like Jefferson Airplane, and Janis Joplin, and The Doors. Led Zeppelin.

EG: What’s the last CD you got.  Anything new?

HL: Um, I can’t remember the last one I bought. I haven’t bought any CD’s in Prague – did I?  Actually I bought the David Holmes CD.  He’s awesome. He went around New York with a DAT machine and recorded all those people in the streets, and mixed it. It’s really good.

EG: Any words of wisdom about keeping your head on straight?

HL: Work as if you don’t need the money, love as if you’ve never been hurt, and dance as if no one’s watching.

EG: Who said that?

HL: “I don’t know, its uh… I did. I just said it…[Laughs]

We continue at The Patriot premiere Party. Heath’s just been congratulated by Cher, and is holding a beer in one hand and a cigarette in the other.

EG:  When you first got the Patriot role, were you nervous about working with Mel?

HL: Yes I was, funnily enough.  Funny you ask me that question again, that’s funny.  No yeah, you’re right, I was, I was very nervous, only because it was Mel Gibson, a guy that I always looked up to I guess you could say, it was Mad Max.  And, you know, he puts you at ease straight away, he cuts through the ice, he makes you smile, makes you laugh, and you’re comfortable all of a sudden.

EG:  How did you get that bond with him that really seems like a father and son thing?

HL: We didn’t you know, go fishing or anything to like create a father and son thing, it just kind of happened, it was like a mutual thing that we both understood. It just formed.

EG:  What’s your relationship with your own dad by comparison?

HL: Oh, its wonderful, and he’s here, he’s here somewhere.

EG: Yeah, I want to meet him.

HL: No, you won’t. [laughs]

EG:  [as fireworks are starting] How does it feel to be surrounded by all this American-ness.

HL: Pretty boring.  No I’m just joking.  Its fun, man, it’s festive.  You really do feel it. You can’t help it. Right now, it’s like the perfect moment, to ask me that question.  As the fireworks are spitting up.

EG:  You’re learning guitar now, is that right?

HL: Yeah!

EG:  What kind of stuff are you playing?

HL: Well, now right now I can play a little bit of Doors and…. I’m just getting there, you know, I mean I can jam right now with my basic chords,and I am slowly learning songs.  It will be a while.
