Gemma Ward, the Australian model who Heath Ledger was rumored to be dating before his sudden death is finally speaking out about the late actor in an interview with The Sydney Morning Herald.
Although making a clear point to not speak about her personal life during the interview, Ward does reveal this about Heath:
"I think he operated from the heart. He really, really knew that if he was going to make a decision to be in a film, then he needed to be really committed to it."
And Heath's advice for her:
"He wasn't afraid to fight with people involved, he wasn't afraid to perhaps piss people off. He told me to always be a punk and stand up for yourself."
