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.

Good for Heath! The paparazzi can be jerks here as well, but I haven't heard of water pistol stories like that, not from a whole herd of them at the same time. I like reading that Heath has feelings and can be sensitive, like a true artist. Great personality, he's butch but also has a heart. No wonder God is blessing him with fame, fortune and a beautiful wife. john.bryant3@cox.net
