Gemma Ward Bans Questions On Personal Life & Modeling At First Public Appearance In 3 Years (VIDEO)

After opening up about her relationship with Heath Ledger last month, model-turned-actress Gemma Ward set some strict rules for her first public appearance in three years at a press conference to promote her play "The Ugly One" on Wednesday.

Reporters were banned from asking about her personal life or her career as a runway model, and were limited to only posing one question, according to Australia's Nine News and Perth Now.

The 23-year-old told the crowd, "It's nice to have a job that you're laughing the entire way through the day," and that she's been spending time with her family playing ping-pong, chess and guitar.

The play opens March 18.
