t's shocking to think that it's been exactly ten years since Heath Ledger passed away. The versatile Oscar-winning Australian actor/director brought to life the iconic role of Batman's The Joker, made us weep in 10 Things I Hate About You, and sent our hearts a-flutter in A Knight's Tale. He was supremely talented - it's kind of bizarre to think of Hollywood without him.
We're taking this time to reflect back on all the moments that Ledger stole our hearts. And let's be real: there's too many to put on a list, but we'll try our best.
When he wore this leather jacket.
And looked so sweet and serene doing so. Little baby Heath, looking like a curly-haired cherub.
When he half-smiled for the camera.
There’s no denying this man was as beautiful as he was talented. Which is why he continually stole our hearts role after role.
When he teared up emotionally.
Ledger could move you with every part he played. Whether he’s a knight or a cowboy, you felt for him.
When he smelled a giant sunflower.
Sunflowers and Heath Ledger? Sure, yes, were in. What we wouldn’t give to be the person lying down in this scene!
When he smiled like this.
We can barely handle this precious content. His little grin is everything. It’s like walking into a literal ray of sunshine. (Is that too much?)
