Heath Ledger, he was one of my few friends in the industry. Many times I’ll work with actors and I can tell they’re thinking, ‘What are you doing? Why are you going that far with it?’ or ‘You’re nuts!’ With Heath, I could feel him going, ‘I love it!’ It felt like we were really pushing each other on. He was a good guy. There are not a lot of actors who I stay in touch with. But Heath was one of them.
He actually did it.
Christian Bale, you are a hero.
“He’s the hero Gotham deserves, but not the one it needs right now. So we’ll hunt him. Because he can take it. Because he’s not our hero. He’s a silent guardian, a watchful protector. A dark knight.”
—The Dark Knight, 2008
