Frasi Heath Ledger
„Quando qualcosa mi sta bloccando la testa o c'è preoccupazione nella mia vita, vado a sedermi su Marte o qualcosa del genere e guardo indietro sulla Terra. Tutto ciò che puoi vedere è questo piccolo puntino. Non vedi la paura. Non vedi il dolore. Non vedi il pensiero. È solo un granello solido. Quindi niente conta davvero. Semplicemente no.“
„Ho chiaramente un'immagine nella mia mente. Ho sicuramente un asso nella manica. Voglio essere molto minaccioso. The Killing Joke è stato la prima cosa che mi ha aiutato. Penso che possa essere l'inizio del Joker. Scommetto che quel libro spiega un po' da dove lui venga fuori, ma non troppo. Da quello che ho raccolto, non ci solo molte informazioni riguardo al Joker ed è lasciato così.“
„Joker è a tanto così dal non avere alcuna coscienza dei suoi atti. È un completo sociopatico, un clown inumano e omicida di massa. Chris mi ha lasciato assolutamente libero e questo è divertente perché Joker non ha alcun tipo di limitazione: può fare o dire qualunque cosa. Non c'è nulla che lo intimidisca e sostanzialmente tutto quanto è un grande scherzo.“

„When anything is blocking my head or there's worry in my life, I just go sit on Mars or something and look back here at Earth. All you can see is this tiny speck. You don't see the fear. You don't see the pain. You don't see thought. It's just one solid speck. Then nothing really matters. It just doesn't.“
As quoted in an interview in Vanity Fair (August 2000).
„Having a child changes every aspect of your life — for the better, of course. The sacrifices are large, but what you get in return is even bigger than the sacrifices you make. I feel, in a sense, ready to die because you are living on in your child. Not literally, not ready to die — but you know, that sort of feeling in a profound way.“
November 2007 interview remarks quoted by Susan Chenery, "Who Is That Man?" http://www.theaustralian.news.com.au/story/0,25197,23097733-15803,00.html, In Touch Weekly, January 23, 2008.
„I'm in control of my life, not anyone in Hollywood. I only do this because I'm having fun. The day I stop having fun, I'll just walk away. I wasn't going to have fun doing a teen movie again. I don't want to do this for the rest of my life. I don't. I don't even want to spend the rest of my youth doing this in this industry. There's so much more I want to discover.“
As quoted in an interview in Vanity Fair (August 2000).
„It's like anything in life, visualizing the old man you're going to become: As long as you have a clear picture of that — the life you want to lead — eventually you'll probably get there.“
Quoted in Variety (December 2005).
Variante: It's like anything in life, visualizing the old man you're going to become: As long as you have a clear picture of that — the life you want to lead — eventually you'll probably get there.
„No amount of money changes what I do between 'action' and 'cut'… Before I got into the industry, I never imagined I'd have anywhere near the money I have now… I don’t need any more. It's not that I don’t want the money, it's just that I would have been really happy sitting on a beach or surfing every morning… I never had money, and I was very happy without it. When I die, my money's not gonna come with me. My movies will live on – for people to judge what I was as a person. I just want to stay curious.“

„Most of the time you don't even know they're there. Now, that's the scary thing. It's really strange and invading, but I'm still working it all out. I try to not let it bother me. And if I want to swim naked in my pool, I'm still going to do it. I certainly don't want to feel that I have to change everything in my life that I do to cater to them. I just won't let it happen.“
Speaking on his problems with the paparazzi, as quoted in the National Post (May 2001).
„I don't have a technique. I've never been a believer in having one set technique on how to act. There are no rules and there is no rulebook. At the end of the day, it all comes down to my instincts. That's the one thing that guides me through every decision professionally. Socially, also. That's my technique. Yeah, you read through the script 100 times. I guess I have little characteristics about myself. Sometimes, most often than not, once we start shooting I won't look at the script at all until we finished shooting. It's kind of like it's been imprinted in my head during rehearsals. You just let it go.“
As quoted by Reel.com (May 2001).
„All of this is so insignificant. In the grand scale of things, there have been so many before who have been in this position. I'm just another one. Life is so short. It's like we're already gone, really, in retrospect.“

„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.“

„Please respect our need to grieve privately. My heart is broken. I am the mother of the most tender-hearted, high-spirited, beautiful little girl who is the spitting image of her father. All that I can cling to is his presence inside her that reveals itself every day. His family and I watch Matilda as she whispers to trees, hugs animals, and takes steps two at a time, and we know that he is with us still. She will be brought up with the best memories of him.“
