Heath Ledger against ad ‘whoring’

HledgerHeath Ledger is just as disgusted as his fellow Aussie pal Russell Crowe about actors appearing in ads. Heath—yeah, the guy from The Four Feathers and 10 Things I Hate About You—calls it “whoring ourselves for millions of dollars.” (Some might say the same about some of Heath’s film projects, but that’s another matter). Ledger is so opposed, in fact, that he almost had a falling out with Nicole Kidman (the star of the mega mini-movie for Chanel No. 5) when he said it was “sacrilegious” for movie stars to be in ads. On a side note, do all Australian actors hang in groups? Must they all be of the same mind-set in order to get along?
