Mrs Carter: Heath loved Michelle’s shorty funky hair, but is it time to let go of the style now that he’s gone?
When Michelle Williams decided to chop off her long blonde locks for a short pixie cut, not too many people were crazy about her hair style, but the one person who loved it was her ex Heath Ledger and although it has been over three years since his passing, Williams still keeps the cut in memory of him.
Michelle’s daughter Matilda, 6, is also not a fan of the short hair and hopes that her mother will grow it back long, but Williams feels that that the hair cut makes her feel like ‘herself’ and she plans on keeping it. She said;
“What Matilda would love is for her mom to grow out the cropped hair, though that’s unlikely to happen any time soon. I’ve really grown into it. I feel like myself with short hair. And it’s been a really long time since I had long hair, five years. Of course, the only people who like it are gay men and my girlfriends. Straight men across the board are not into this hair! I cut it for the one straight man who has ever liked short hair and I wear it in memorial of somebody who really loved it.”
Heath Ledger passed away in 2008 at the young age of 28.
