Heath Ledger Decides Against Gay Candy This Time

LedgerA line from the new Heath Ledger film Candy inspired laughter from the audience at a recent screening at which Ledger was present according to NYDN's Rush & Molloy. Ledger's character suggests to his girlfriend (Abbie Cornish) that he start turning gay tricks in order to support his drug habit, but decides against it: "I wouldn't know what to do. [Gays] want muscle hunks. I'd be hopeless."

Ledger apparently thought the dark movie needed "some comic relief" as well, and provided some to a male audience member after the show who asked him if he was wearing underwear. His response? "I'm going commando right now." Apparently it's a Brokeback thing.

  2. I saw this film recently at the Calgary Int'l Film Festival. Acting wise, very good. Addiction wise, okay. My friend who works in addictions as a nurse had some minor beefs with this part. But we both enjoyed it. And yes, that line got a few chuckles.

  5. It was also kind of funny when he asked his gay "friend" and supplier for "technical advice" i.e. "do they expect you to get a stiffy"?
