Heath Ledger is misunderstood

But sometimes, it's worth it:

"I was promoting a film ["10 Things I Hate About You"] with Julia Stiles so I went on the 'Regis and Kathie Lee Show,'" Ledger told celebrity researcher Baird Jones at the premiere party for "The Ring," which stars Ledger's girlfriend, Naomi Watts. "Regis innocently asked me what I did Down Under for Christmas fun, so I told him that me and my mates liked to put on our thongs and grab weenies and look at the girls go by, and that was our perfect way to male bond."

Needless to say, his confession had quite an effect.

"The whole audience just went silent and Regis was all frantic gesturing for a commercial break," Ledger recalls. "On the break, my movie's publicist came rushing over, saying, 'Heath, what is this, some kind of crazy practical joke? You're on national TV!' So I explained to her that in Australia Christmas is our summer and thongs to us are flip-flops not G-strings and I had just meant putting hotdogs on the barbie."
