Apr 16 - Heath Ledger spooked Dark Knight crew
 

 
HEATH Ledger was reportedly told to seek professional help for his personal problems while filming The Dark Knight.

The late Australian actor - who tragically died from an accidental prescription drugs overdose in January - was reportedly warned he had become too obsessed with his portrayal of iconic Batman villain The Joker in the upcoming blockbuster.

A source told FOX News: "Heath refused to talk to anyone out of character.

"If you tried to communicate with him normally instead of The Joker, he would just ignore you.

"He would often come to the set to hang out even on his days off, freaking everyone out. Towards the end of filming, he was warned by people that he had gone too far, but it was almost like he couldn't connect with those who cared for him anymore."

Ledger reportedly locked himself in an apartment for an entire month before playing The Joker, who he described as a "psychotic, mass-murdering clown".

Ledger also admitted he had such trouble sleeping while shooting the film he resorted to taking the prescription drug Ambien.

Sources on the set of The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus - the movie Ledger was filming when he died - also claimed the actor could not "snap out" of character and seemed to have "lost sense" of who he was.

So he wasn't playing the joker, he became the joker. That Batman cast is tight. They are all Oscar type performers. RIP heath

It's called method acting, Wesley Snipes does the same hence everyone thinking he's crazy.

Method acting is when you act and think of real life sh*t to make your performance more realistic
This dude just stayed in character man

You guys are such little bi*ches when it comes to talking about dead people. You make harsh jokes and sh*t but always remember to throw in a lil "naw, jk... RIP tho."

LOL... like his dead a.ss can hear you or something and you are gonna go burn forever when you die now cuz you made fun of some dead guy. He was just some dime-a-dozen actor... pull your skirts down...

Oh.... and RIP.... lmao...

Christian Bale did the same thing when playing American Psycho..

Spent months in the gym, and using his upper crust manhatten accent, and thinking about murderous impulses..

Apparantly one of the cast members complained about his mysognistic (anti-women) remarks on set.

No doubt he did the same sh*t for batman..

Maybe Heath took a page out of bales book.

This isn't uncommon. Like, when you hear about actors making demands that people don't look them in the eyes, they are scared to lose their character. My dad's friend was a driver for Tommy Lee Jones and he said the bags under that dudes eyes is from doing this same sh*t. Jones can't sleep at night when he's doing a movie.
