Michelle Williams Says Short Hair A “Memorial” To Heath Ledger

|

Michelle Williams can pull off a pixie cut better than Tinkerbell herself (plus, she looks better in green!), but it turns out the My Week With Marilyn actress keeps her locks cropped for a reason other than her insane cheekbones. “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 tells Elle, explaining that ex Heath Ledger always preferred her with a short cut. No, we aren’t crying; we just got something in our eye! Like a short, fabulous bang!

“What Matilda would love is for her mom to grow out the cropped hair, though that’s unlikely to happen any time soon,” Michelle laughed. “Of course, the only people who like it are gay men and my girlfriends. Straight men across the board are not into this hair!” Far be it from us to disagree with a 6-year-old and 90 percent of men on the planet (allegedly), but we think Michelle’s cropped hair looks gorgeous on her. So amazing, in fact, that we decided to rep for all the other ladies, from Rihanna to Tilda Swinton, Emma Watson to Robyn, who have looked amazingly hot with short hair. Because Monroe herself rarely went longer than a bob, and that’s real.
