Ledger Thanks Aussie Media In Haunting Voicemail

Heath Ledger made peace with Australian journalists his ex-fiancee Michelle Williams claimed had tortured the actor - just three weeks before his death. The movie star left a voicemail message on The West Australian film editor Mark Naglazas' voicemail on 30 December (07) - just before leaving his native Australia, where he spent Christmas (07). In the message, Ledger appeared to have accepted the media who once made his life a living hell - hunting him down for photos and squirting him with water pistols at film premieres. He said, "I thought I'd ring up and just send some thanks out there to the peeps at The West Australian and (newspaper) The Sunday Times and everyone in Perth in general. "I don't know whether it's a conscious thing or an unconscious thing, giving me space and respecting my privacy. It's just been awesome, and I've had the most beautiful time back here and being able to see all my friends and family, let alone the press and the people within the community of Perth, it's been so lovely. "It's really enabled me to be a boy again from home and feel like I'd never left. Like I said, I'm not sure whether it's a conscious decision on the paper's part or not to kind of give me this space, but they have, and I truly, truly thank them for it, and it makes my life a life when I come back here." Ledger was found dead in his New York apartment on Tuesday (22Jan08). The actor's body will be taken back to his native Perth for a funeral.
