After Heath Ledger passed away unexpectedly from an accidental prescription drug overdose in January 2008, celebrities spoke out about the famed actor who left us far too soon. One actor who remained silent was Christian Bale.
Actor Christian Bale co-starred with Heath Ledger in the blockbuster movie “The Dark Knight”, which earned Ledger an Oscar for his performance as the Joker. Now, Christian Bale is breaking is silence about Heath in an interview with Esquire Magazine. Christian Bale refused to watch the news after Heath Ledger died, fearing the speculative content and constant gossip would tarnish his memories of his friend. “I paid no attention to it. I knew him, I knew the family and why the hell would I sit there listening to idiots who don’t know anything at all? I literally didn’t read anything, didn’t watch anything (after he died)” he told Esquire. “If I happened to be watching anything that came on, I switched over straight away. It’s incredible the way the voyeuristic outlook is accepted as news.”
Bale is still mourning the passing of his friend who he felt had a passion for acting as intense as his. “Many times I’ll work with actors and I can tell they’re thinking, ‘What are you doing? Why are you going that far with it?’ or ‘You’re nuts!’ With Heath, I could feel him going, ‘I love it! It felt like we were really pushing each other on, to the limits of where you can go with it. He was a good guy. There’s not a lot of actors who I stay in touch with. But Heath was one of them.”
I was SHOCKED when I read on PageSix this morning that supermodel Stephanie Stephanie Seymour is getting a divorce. I had no idea there was trouble in paradise.
Supermodel Stephanie Seymour is getting divorced from her wealthy businessman husband, Peter Brant, after 16 years of marriage. The couple have 3 children and split their time between the Hampton’s and Greenwich, CT. Who can forget Seymour’s 90’s relationship with Guns N Roses front-man Axl Rose which resulted in her starring in two of their video’s. Seymour was a longtime model and Victoria’s Secret Angel before meeting Brant, who was married and had five children. Brant is an avid art collector who plays polo, owns thoroughbred racehorses and publishes Interview and Art in America magazines.
Seymour filed for divorce two months ago and now the battle begins as her soon-to-be ex-husband is not playing nice. A friend told PageSix that Stephanie came home and discovered the locks had been changed so she’s sleeping in the maid’s quarters. The pair is due in court in Greenwich, CT on Monday and this is expected to be a bitter brawl since Brant is accusing Seymour of being an unfit mother and challenging her for custody of their three children Peter Jr., 15, Harry, 12, and Lilly, 4. To be continued…..
And to think this man could have been President
