Why Is Michelle Williams's Hair So Short?
Because she gets it cut like that.
Michelle Williams keeps her hair short as a tribute to her late ex, Australian actor Heath Ledger. In December 2011, while promoting My Week With Marilyn, she opened up to Elle UK (via HuffPo) about her pixie-cut look, saying, “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.”
While we seriously doubt Heath was alone in his love of Michelle’s closely cropped hair (hello, Jason Segel obviously digs it), we are totally misty-eyed knowing that she sticks with the style in memory of The Dark Knight star.
“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 added.
