Prepare for a tug on your heartstrings: Michelle Williams recently opened up to the British version of Elle about her sometimes puzzling pixie cut. According to Telegraph, the actress spilled that “straight men across the board are not into [her] hair,” but she keeps it short “in memorial of somebody who really loved it.”

Michelle cut her hair five years ago “for the one straight man who has ever liked” it. At the time, she was married to actor Heath Ledger, who she split from in 2007. Heath died less than six months later, but Michelle clearly still misses him. And, in spite of daughter Matilda’s preference for longer hair, Michelle says growing it out is “unlikely to happen any time soon.”

In the meantime, we’d like to see anyone try to criticize her short cut now.
