Michelle Williams wears hair short in memory of Heath Ledger

michelle-williams-heath-ledger-spirit.jpgLike most actresses, Michelle Williams has had hundreds of haircuts, in every color imaginable. Her current standard, though, is the short blonde pixie cut that she has returned to over and over in the last few years.

Williams says that her daughter doesn't love the cut... and neither do most potential suitors. "What Matilda would love is for her mom to grow out the cropped hair, though that's unlikely to happen any time soon," she tells 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. Of course, the only people who like it are gay men and my girlfriends. Straight men across the board are not into this hair!"

She went for the short locks when she and Heath Ledger were dating. "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," she says.

Excuse us. We're going to go cry now.
