Heath ledger who was he dating

Insiders reveal to Vanity Fair details about their last days as a couple.

Echoing the sly psychopathy and scary singsong voice of Anthony Hopkins in The Silence of the Lambs (Hannibal Ledger!

), Ledger carries in him the deranged threat of a punk star like Sid Vicious, whom he supposedly took as one of the models for his character.

Ledger seems to have understood that, and brings an appropriate - and riveting - unpredictability to the role.

It's also a neat touch that his makeup, which looked like a slapdash effort from the start, steadily deteriorates, streaking, cracking and peeling away as the film progresses; it's an outward manifestation of his psychological spiral.

His sister Kate told : "Every report was coming out that he was depressed and that [the role] was taking this toll on him, and we're going, 'Honestly, it was the absolute opposite'."It couldn't be more wrong.

He had an amazing sense of humour, and I guess maybe only his family and friends knew that, but he was having fun.

Bale – who is notorious for his method acting, which has seen him lose lots of weight, and, erm, gain lots of weight – explained that even he thought Heath was taking things too far with his demands to be punched."He was slamming himself around," explained Bale.
