It can be a little distressing to have to overintellectualize yourself.
– Heath Ledger
The reason that you dance and sing is to make the audience feel like they’re dancing and singing. As long as you’re having fun with it and giving it 100 percent, they’re gonna feel that.
I never want to feel like I’ve achieved my goal. It’s like Chinese farmers. They never admit that it’s a good season. They feel like they’ll be punished.
I only do this because I’m having fun. The day I stop having fun, I’ll just walk away.
I like to do something I fear.
I’m happy without money.
If you make decisions based upon people’s reactions or judgments then you make really boring choices.
I don’t have that much forward planning about what I want to do next, or in the future.
I’m kind of addicted to moving.
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.
I apologize for my terrible interview skills.
I like to set up obstacles and defeat them.
I feel like I’m wasting time if I repeat myself.
It’s odd, that’s why I don’t like telling people I played field hockey. It’s real big in Australia for guys. But I say I played in America, and everybody goes, ‘Oh, you girl!’
I never took an acting class, so I’ve made all my mistakes on film.
You know, I’m not in a hurry, and everybody else in Hollywood – particularly agents and managers – they’re all in a hurry.
I’m still a kid. I’m like six years old. But it’s just a matter of wanting to get up, it’s just a big journey. I felt like when I left home that I was on a journey, and I still am.
If you’re just safe about the choices you make, you don’t grow.
I generally don’t think most situations can be labeled as black or white.
It’s kind of a rule of thumb for me to self-doubt going into any kind of project. I always think that I shouldn’t be doing it and I don’t know how to do it and I’m going to fail and that I fooled them. I always try to find a way out.
I’ve never figured out who ‘Heath Ledger’ is on film: ‘This is what you expect when you hire me, and it will be recognizable.’
I don’t feel like I have anything to lose, so I don’t really understand what I’m putting at risk.
I’m in control of my life, not anyone in Hollywood.
Anyone that has a job that takes them away from home, I think, can understand the difficulties in maintaining consistency, not only with your family and those you love but with your friends.
I’m just not one of those naturally funny, relaxed actors who enjoy the spotlight and are so good at it.
