2007 (RTL TV Croatia) I have to confess that I’ve only discovered Heath Ledger about three months ago.
The film is set to hit theaters on October 20 – be sure to catch the movie when it’s released!
John Belushi, Jayne Mansfield, Marilyn Monroe, and Bruce Lee died in their thirties; Natalie Wood and Montgomery Clift are still considered to have died young in their forties.
Looking at those names, it is a queasy and dizzy experience to realise how they are saturated now with the early death tragic aura that has yet to seep into Heath Ledger - for all the world as if everyone at the time knew what was to happen to Clift or Dean, as if their lives were chronicles of deaths foretold.
She's the sort you could easily imagine confiding everything to over a beer; and you believe Heath Ledger (who plays her junkie lover in the new drama Candy) when he says, "I love her. And he loves building and pulling things apart, so he had room for his toys." The way Cornish describes it, her childhood sounds blissful. A heavy dreamer, Cornish claims that the night before her final audition for Candy she dreamt she was using heroin in real life. They shot a mini-documentary, which they later distributed among the Candy crew.
She's like my little sister." When it came to the casting of her other new movie, A Good Year, a rustic comedy set in Provence, she was sought after by none less than the film's star, Russell Crowe - though she seems unimpressed by this. Put this attitude down to Cornish still being a good old-fashioned farm girl at heart. "The whole day was spent with my hands in the mud, and with animals, helping nature and seeing life," she says. "Seeing people who were still involved with the drug ... If you can start to empathise with it, then you can start to understand." Cornish is not so masochistic that she needs to play characters like Candy all the time, however.
