The actor's relationship with the Australian press during filming for new movie CANDY Down Under, and the paparazzi decided to have the last word at the January (06) 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/GBP2.8 million) in March (06) after Ledger relocated to Brooklyn, New York City, with his partner Michelle Williams and their daughter MATILDA.

my two cents

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
