Heath Ledger @ Venice Film Festival 2007

Heath Ledger @ Venice Film Festival 2007

Despite reports of a break-up from actress Michelle Williams, Heath Ledger was pretty much all smiles in his camouflage Ray-Ban Wayfarers at the I’m Not There photocall during day 7 of the Venice Film Festival on Tuesday in Venice, Italy.

Williams‘ father, Larry, recently told Australia’s Daily Telegraph: “We have known about their troubles for a while but it’s always a very difficult thing in life when these things happen. I know Heath and Michelle still care about each other deeply and are very committed to being great parents to their daughter.”

Apparently the pressures of work caused their break-up: “You can never be stunned by what happens in Hollywood – I learned that when we were dealing with Michelle‘s career when she was younger. Michelle was grown up at 16 and, just like Heath, her life has had an extremely fast pace to it. I feel tremendously for her and for him, and hope they will find what they want in life.”

    that sucks. they were a cute couple, i liked them together.

  • [~Famous~]

    single and happy. two fug people shouldn’t be together.

  • http://- slm

    That man seriously isn’t cute. And his not that much of a talented actor neither, diasappointing on both fronts when you really think about it.

  • anon

    He has a great body and i think he’s a good actor. Didn’t like his and Michelle’s attitude when they were together. I think it’s better they broke up!

  • http://www.ilsvont.com ils vont…

    Gee you think he is working for RAYBAN? All he wears are varying shades of shades from RAYBAN.

    I think Heath looks cools in his sunglasses. To me, he looks different than in his other pictures for some reason.

    Check out my work at home jobs site:

  • Ashley

    He looks really good.

  • Belinda

    he’s ugly now but he deserves better. But then again he’s an azz and so was Williams.

  • Gusu

    He was great in “Broke back Mountain.” Should have won the oscar. The hat worked well for him in that. Now he looks so ordinary

  • juju

    Sorry nothing attrative about this guy, plus he dresses like he buys his clothes at a second hand store. Michelle is very pretty but she was picking up his bad habits, looking like a bum.

  • Pandora

    Gusu — I agree. That was the last time I thought there was anything remotely cute about the guy. Initially, he and Michelle seemed happy — he w/ the glow that comes w/ a newly established relationship, and she with the glow of a pregnancy of the kind that hooks a man. But, as we see, it doesn’t. Neither has looked happy for a long time and she in particular looks morose ALL of the time.

    Probably best that they split, but I feel sorry for theit little girl, of course.

  • Seb

    Oh GOD NOOOO, you need to have me be your personal Assistant Heath. I for one would never let you leave the house looking as horrible as that.
    Wanting to blend is one thing, but I don’t know if you really blend there….

  • WTF

    Oh my god I remember when he was sorta hot. What happened???

  • me

    “Oh my god I remember when he was sorta hot. What happened???”

    Michelle Williams happened!

  • oh bummer

    My guess is his career isn’t going so well and he has nothing else to fall back on. He’s trying to hang on for dear life to an acting career that is just about dead.

    Nothing lasts forever. These stars should always prepare for the famine, especially when they grow older and lose their looks. Heath was never a really big star like Brad Pitt or Tom Cruise, so he should know better. It’s quite sad.

  • CRAZY_HO

    @ #9,

    Sorry, but the Oscar was not Heath’s! He was good, but the guy that won was way better!

  • me

    @15, are u serious? Heath’s movie I’m Not There just came out and he is filming The Dark Knight (the sequel to Batman Begins) at the moment!

  • magnus

    Biggest actor in Hollywood by the end of July next summer.

    Guaranteed.

  • Gusu

    #16. The guy who won was good. I like him. But he won for lisping good. It is harder to do a young guy aging, with a deep inner turmoil over repressed sexuality and give a good performance without ever having a chance to exaggerate. Movie was subtle and multi-layered. Harder to show your talents doing a physically fine person. he made audience feel for him without crying or acting out. heck, he hardly spoke in the movie!!

  • Eva

    Better knitwear than Sienna’s.

  • CRAZY_HO

    First he hooked up with his momma, NAOMIE HARRIS..

    Then he hooked up with his sour grandmother, MICHELLE WILLIAMS..

    He is lucky he is 28 and manages to look like 35 and not 45!

    Heath, please hook up with a chick with life!

  • CRAZY_HO

    The only way that bore Michelle Williams could snag Heath Ledger is by trapping him with a kid! Classic Reese Witherspoon.

    The men will always leave in the end.

    Think about it, why would young girls with great careers ahead of them get pregnant in this business? Especially so soon after starting to date the guy? What, their protection worked before, but not then?
    Entrapment!

  • baly

    Probably the reason of the split is that Heath would not marry Michele. It works for Jennifer Garner for entrapping Ben Affleck by getting pregnant right away.

  • Go Halle!

    #22

    True, true, true – everything you said.

    I hope that doesn’t happen to Halle Berry. She is finally pregnant and I am so happy! I hope Halle and Gabriel have a lasting relationship. They’re so pretty.

  • mona

    i agree with #3-slm, he is not that cute.
    BUT . . . HE IS A GREAT ACTOR.

  • Anon

    Heath is gonna start looking good again now. LOL!!! I like his outfit. It is very “retro” looking consistent with the movie he is promoting. “I’m Not There” is about the life and times and music of Bob Dylan.

  • pancakebottom

    He used to be cute but those dirty clothes and his kid brother’s coat are not nice. Those are the clothes u put on a scarecrow.

  • Peach

    What has happened to Heath. He used to be cute. Is it – that he’s not aging well? Or what?

    And he seriously needs a stylist or a new stylist…

  • bataglio

    that b_tch MW was busy flipping photogs off last summer… this summer, after the breakup, she dyes her hair and is all smiles for the photo ops.

  • mamacita

    they broke up because he’s dating to Adriana Lima.

  • giselle

    wat went wrong he was so hot before and now he just so not!!!!!

  • Anon

    Heath has lost the baby face and has grown into a very sexy, handsome man. He has killer bone structure and a very attractive face. He has zero “fashion” sense and tries to maek himself look unattractive with facial hair and crappy clothes, but he fails. At least he dressed up for the festival screening of his film! LOL!!! I don’t mind the prop, but I wish Heath would drop it with these costumes and props, bcz, the junky clothes are costumes and props. If he wants to be normal and not be standing out, he needs to get a pair of jeans, a fresh looking t-shirt and a neutral looking blazer and get his hair groomed. My guess is that the hair is still long bcz of Dark Knight (Batman.)still shooting.
    He does look relaxed and happy, tho. I hate that he and Matilda will have to divide their time together. She is SO adorable. Looks like her daddy.

  • yourtvmama

    There’s nothing worse than a balding guy with long, stringy hair, desperately trying to hang on to the strands he’s got –covering them gingerly with a hat to “camouflage” it. He should do a Bruce Willis and shave it off or get a buzz cut. It shows a lot more confidence and I think he can pull off the buzz cut well. What he’s got going on now makes him look super-old. He also needs a tan because his palor looks unhealthy. What the hell happened to him? OLD!

    It’s kind of ironic, since Michelle Williams keeps looking younger and younger. She’ll be a fetus again soon.

    Maybe these two were just toxic together and are actually nice people when they are apart?

  • 123

    I swear he still looked good at the Venice Film Festival in 2005 when he promoted BBM. Since then his looks went downhill.

  • janine

    it’s true that he’s dating to Adriana Lima.My bf knows his manager and she proved it right.

  • ERIN

    HE NEEDS TO LOOSE THE SHADES, THAT SHAPE DOES NOT WORK FOR HIM AT ALL.

  • axe

    is he really dating to Miss Lima?If it’s right,that sounds awesome.They are both amazing looking!

  • old man

    Do not stand at my grave and weep,
    I am not there, I do not sleep.

    I am a thousand winds that blow.
    I am the diamond glint on snow.
    I am the sunlight on ripened grain.
    I am the gentle autumn rain.

    When you wake in the morning hush,
    I am the swift, uplifting rush
    Of quiet birds in circling flight.
    I am the soft starlight at night.

    Do not stand at my grave and weep.
    I am not there, I do not sleep.
    Do not stand at my grave and cry.
    I am not there, I did not die!
