Water Pistol Attack Left Ledger in Tears (The Actor becomes the character)
IMDB news ^ | today | staff

Posted on 06/08/2006 9:48:49 AM PDT by Rodney King

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.

Apparently they cast Bareback Mountain with an appropriate actor.

Cowboys don't cry when shot by squirtguns. Sheepboys do.

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.

Who said we wanted him in?

Tell the INS an unwanted, unempolyed alien without any markerable skills is trying to cross the border.

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.

Too bad the Aussie press could not converge lines of fire to make it look like he peed his pants.

"Heath had to go into the cinema and introduce that film soaking wet."

How can a squirt from a water pistol leave someone "soaking wet."?

I know what you mean. It is not everyday someone manages to snap a picture or two of someone else getting squirted in the face with a milky white stream of fluid. At least not in my line of work. :)

finocchio

Ah, a fine italian word they've been using on the Sopranos lately, in regard to Gay Vito. Actually they've been using "finnook", or as Phil Leotardo put it, "finnoik." The word refers to the herb "fennel", and for some reason has meant what you think it means since time immemorial in Italian.

OK, Tom Cruise got squirted in the face before what was it, MI2? He acted like a pansy. Ahnuld got hit viss ahn egg during a campaign stop. What did he do? He ripped off his soiled jacket, handed it to an aide, and kept on going. I really admired that.

Perhaps he was upset the only substance the squirt guns contained was water.
