Melbourne, Oct 26 : Late Aussie actor Heath Ledger had led a very romantic life, according to a new book by Janet Fife-Yeomans.
'Heath, a Family's Tale' has revealed that the actor had a number of relationships, notably with Heather Graham, whom he started dating after he split broke-up with Christina (Cauchi).
Ledger and Heather had met in a club in Prague, although it took a few months before their affair found its way into the gossip magazines, and the fact that she was nine years older than him, he was 21 then, made no difference to him.
Graham called him the love of her life and stated that she was lucky to know him.
"Heath is a great guy. I feel really protective of him, so I don't want to say too much. But he's an incredible, amazing person and I'm really lucky to know him," she said.
But within a month his relationship with Graham came to an end and he moved on to the next woman, who was once again older than him by at least ten years.
Ledger met co-star Naomi Watts in 2002 while shooting the Australian film Ned Kelly, and the pair started seeing each other.
"It is a new chapter. I feel like the luckiest girl in the world," said Watts.
After two years of being together the two split up and went their way with friends saying that it had nothing to do with Watts' getting clucky.
Soon after Ledger fell for another co-star, while filming 'Brokeback Mountain' in 2004, 24-year-old Michelle Williams, and in the final week of December of that same year, he had asked her to join him for Christmas in Australia.
There was a romantic dinner and a ballet performance at the Opera House before they flew to Perth to spend Christmas with his family, and they even went off to the hippie haven of Byron Bay.
"It's very romantic. It's very spiritual," Ledger had said of Byron Bay.
The similarity in their ages somehow helped the relationship between the two to move on quickly, and they began talking about having babies together.
"Very early on in our relationship, we talked about having babies together. I always knew I would be a young father," he said.
"We just fell very deeply into each other's arms. Our bodies definitely made those decisions for us. I mean, the second you acknowledge (having a child) as a possibility, the body just inevitably hits a switch and it happens," he stated.
