Ledger wins in my book
In a Hollywood =/= Liberal rant over at AMERICAblog, there's a good quote from Heath Ledger.
"I never thought twice about it," Ledger insists. "For one thing, I never felt like I had anything at stake, and I think if you make decisions based on society's opinions, you're going to make boring choices. What terrified me was self-doubt. I knew that if I was going to do justice to this character, to this story and to this form of love, I was really going to have to mature as an actor, and as a person." [link]
That's an astoundingly mature quote. I applaud Ledger. And while I'm doing that, you guys go read the AMERICAblog rant.
