Did You Know?

Personal Quote:

[asked why he hides his looks behind strange wigs, fake teeth and girly squeals] I think it's an actor's responsibility to change every time. Not only for himself and the people he's working with, but for the audience. If you just go out and deliver the same dish every time . . . it's meat loaf again . . . you'd get bored. I'd get bored.

Trivia:

Named beaches on his own island in Bahamas after his once-girlfriend Vanessa Paradis, his children and public figures like Hunter S. Thompson and Marlon Brando. There is also a patch of water named "Heath's Place" after Heath Ledger. See more »

Trademark:

Frequently plays freakishly eccentric outcasts whose oddities are misunderstood by society, and usually have a flamboyant appearance and mannerism. Examples: Edward Scissorhands (1990), Ed Wood (1994), Don Juan DeMarco (1994), Dead Man (1995), Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas (1998), Sleepy Hollow (1999), Before Night Falls (2000), the "Pirates of the Caribbean" films and Sweeney Todd: The Demon ...
