Heath Ledger burst into tears after paparazzi attacked him with water pistols at the Australian premiere of Brokeback Mountain in Sydney earlier this year, according to his father. The actor's relationship with the Australian press soured during filming for new movie Candy, and the paparazzi decided to have the last word at the January premiere of his Oscar-nominated film. Ledger's father Kim tells the Sydney Daily Telegraph newspaper his heart was broken when his son called just hours after the run-in, saying he wanted to sell his waterfront home in Sydney and move to the US permanently. He says, "Heath had to go into the cinema and introduce that film soaking wet. He cried all night. He rang me and said, 'Dad, that's it - sell the house.'" Ledger's father urged his son to think it over for 48 hours before making a final decision. He says, "Two days later he rang me back and said, 'Dad, it's been 47 hours and 57 minutes - sell the house.'" The luxury property was sold for Aus $7 million ($5 million) in March after Ledger relocated to Brooklyn, New York City, with his partner Michelle Williams and their daughter Matilda.
What a puss.
Apparently they cast Bareback Mountain with an appropriate actor.
HAhahahaha. What a wuss.
Looks like they did a little type casting for "Brokeback". What a whiny little pansy...
Last I'd heard he was a real jerk in public so sounds like karma caught up with him.
Heath's Dad should have treated him like Vito Corleone treated Johnny Fontane in The Godfather:
Johnny Fontane: Oh, Godfather, I don't know what to do. I don't know what to do.
Don Corleone: [shouts] You can act like a man!
[he slaps Johnny]
Don Corleone: What's the matter with you. Is this how you turned out? A Hollywood finocchio that cries like a woman.
[Don Corleone imitates him sobbing]
Don Corleone: What can I do?
Don Corleone: What can I do? What is that nonsense. Ridiculous.
Kind of makes ya wonder if the cast selection selection for "Brokeback Mountain" involved some sort of queer "casting couch"...
He doesn't even have the decency to marry the woman. What a loser.
Dude, you were squirted in the face. Suck it up. Take it like a man.
Hmm. I'm not really comfortable giving this advice to Brockback boy. What an idiot, though. I can just see John Wayne weeping all night if someone threw a tomato at him as he headed into a premiere.
What? People have never seen a wet pussy before?
This is silly. I have no respect for this actor anymore.
what a PUDDING EATER!
Ahh, for the old days. I'd have love to see some photog pull this on the Duke. Probably be crapping flashbulbs for the next month.
Oh please don't come here, whiny baby.
"He cried all night."
