Michelle Williams Keeps Hair Short as a ‘Memorial’ to Heath Ledger

We think Michelle Williams looks gorgeous (and very Marilyn Monroe-esque) with her short hair, and she has a good reason for keeping the pixie cut.

“What Matilda [her daughter with Heath Ledger] would love is for her mum to grow out the cropped hair, though that’s unlikely to happen any time soon,” Michelle says in UK Elle.

“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,” she says. “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,” Williams explains.

Michelle has always been very tasteful and appropriate when discussing Heath. She really does it with the utmost respect.

Williams can be seen next in My Week With Marilyn, which is already generating a lot of Oscar buzz.
