Aussie actor Heath Ledger's latest movie role as a junkie is wreaking havoc with his surfing hobby - because he can't go out in the sun.

The hunky KNIGHT'S TALE star is currently getting into character for his new film CANDY and admits living at the beach in Sydney, Australia is fast becoming torture - because he can't go out during the day.

He says, "I have to stay pale. I still go to the beach, but early, around seven (am), for a walk."

And he's also regretting his decision to buy a home in East Los Angeles - because he lives too far from the beach when he's there.

He adds, "It would take me too long to get to the ocean."
