Heath Ledger's New Dragonfly Tattoo

Heath Ledger's New Dragonfly Tattoo

Heath Ledger shows off his brand new dragonfly tattoo while chatting with director Todd Haynes at the screening of their new film I’m Not There at NYC’s Bowery Hotel on Tuesday. (This is the film where Heath and six other actors embody a different aspect of the musician Bob Dylan‘s life and work.)

Heath, 28, recently got a new upper right arm tattoo of a dragonfly, which symbolizes freedom and change (he separated from actress Michelle Williams back in August).

Also pictured: Costars Bruce Greenwood, Richard Gere, Marcus Carl Franklin, and Julianne Moore

    He looks like he crawled out of a dumpster. The neckline on his t-shirt is even ripped. Why would a good looking, well-paid guy dress like this? He looks horrible. Gross.

  • KarenA

    I think he looks great. The tattoo is very nice and his look, that’s just Heath. The face is the same and it’s a very nice one. Thanks, Jared.

  • stephanie Woods

    Heath used to be really cute, but now he’s looking kinda…I don’t know…he’s not aging well. and the tatoo is like, okay.

  • kanoe

    dang, too much fing around and drinking and stuff has aged this previous hottie. Mel Gibson did the same thing too to his looks-was really hot as a young man but lived hard and now he’s a big leatherface.

  • Shimmeringdew

    He’s a good looking man in the face but this dirty not showered look is not becoming of him. But it is his signature style. He needs a new stylist or if not a new one – he needs to hire one all the same.

  • Rita

    a dragonfly??? hmmm

  • ace tomato

    Is he another closeted gay? I know, I know he’s a father. Trust me, that never ruled anyone out.

    The dragonfly is a little uhmm . . . well it’s not exactly manly.

  • feet

    wow
    i didn’t know a mid-life crisis came that early…

  • Julia

  • vitoria

    i also like the new tattoo…
    and come on people, that’s just his style..he looks good…

  • kel

    Heath rocks.

  • les

    Tattoos are trashy. He knows he broke up with the mother of his child. Why does he have to celebrate it with a hideous tattoo.

  • sam

    the ponytail or is it a bun … doesn’t do anything for his looks. He proves that anyone can make it in “Hollyland”

    That`s great~~

    I agree with you #19. Heath sucks and was obviously a kid. He wasn’t ever goint to marry Michelle because he never planned to settle down with her and the poor thing wanted to because she use to call him her husband. I wouldn’t be surprised if that was the reason they broke up; that he was being “pressured” into marraige and he wasn’t ready. He looks like he wants to go back to the broke back days. I always thought there was real chemistry between heath and jake, and I do think it’s only time.

    Michelle got really hot after she became a mama and settled down etc. It’s unfortunate another family is broken up but she can do waaay better than Heath

  • Jim

    There was a terrible picture of him on PerezHilton. Here he doesn’t look quite so awful. Does he do drugs? Dunno. Is the Pope Catholic? You betcha.

  • jerri

    I love Heath Ledger. He is one of the best, if not THE best actor I have ever seen!! He actually becomes the character he is portraying!! I also admire the fact that Heath is Heath. What you see is what you get!! He does not dress to impress, but to be himself!! Love you Heath!! You are awesome!!

  • sc

    These photos are strangely prescient of his early demise. RIP Heath.

  • Sheryl

    I loved Heath But I wish he didn’t die on my Birthday :(
    He can be certain that I will always remember him as I age.

  • http://msn Alex

    you guys that are trashing heath are fucking gay losers if you dont wanna see the tattoo then dont look and dont ruin it for the rest of us

  • Aussie

    Well said, Alex!

  • lmao

    His tat looks HOT!!!!!!!!!!

    The reason he dresses like that is to prove that you don’t have to have designer clothes. I also believe that if you have to spend more than 50 dollars on an article of clothing, I think you are ridiculous. Heath was an amazing actor and person. Remember he left High School to pursue his dream of acting, and landed in Sidney, Australia with only 28 cents to his name. Money wasn’t any object to him.
    Tattoos are a way of expressing yourself. You can show people your personality and your thoughts through tattoos.

  • Pamela

    I sure miss Heath very much. That way Heath dress up because maybe Heath dont want anyone notice him. I love his tattoos. I am planning get one just like one of his tattoos. I have tattoo myself Sun and Moon. RIP Heath.

  • suzanne

    I’m looking for ideas for a Drangonfly tatto for myself. This didn’t help! Something a bit smaller and alot more pretty for me.

    You people that are trashing Heath, it’s unbelievable all the crap you say, you actually think is true! The dragonfly tattoo stands for freedom, not if he’s gay or not. Stupid people. Heath was an awesome actor, but he and Jake had a FRIENDSHIP. Jake is Matilda’s Godfather, not Heath’s lover. If any of you knew anything about Heath you would have known that he HATED the sex symbol status. He wanted to be known for his acting abilities, not his looks. Why would he “dress to impress”? It wasn’t important to him. He was such a handsome man, but his true beauty came from inside. Who he was, not who everyone else thought he was SUPPOSED to be.

    @stacey Watson: great words stacey. I agree with you, he was something special, not just a star in the crowded sky of the showbiz, but something more brilliant.

    @connie:
    It is a beautiful and only he knew why it is inverted, dragonflies mean change in ones life not bad but peaceful ones, much needed.
    Heath you are the star I can no longer see in the sky??? RIP wherever you are…..

    As for the person slagging him down…Why cannot a filmstar dress as he/she pleases…stop your moaning!

  • http://buzznet Marilyn

    @stacey Watson:
    Dito! WHAT SORT OF PEOPLE ARE THESE WHO SLAG A YOUNG,TALENTED, ACTOR, UPCUMING PRODUCER. ALSO A WONDERFUL FATHER TO HIS DAUGHTER. HE WAS SO ILL WHEN HE PASSED AWAY, PNEAUMONIA WAS VERY BAD, ALONG WITH HIS UNABLE TO SLEEP,DUE TO THE FACT HE LOVED HIS DAUGHTER. YOU SHOULD GO LOOK AT ALL THE MOVIES THIS BEAUTIFUL GUY MANAGED TO BE IN, AND JUST SEE HOW GOOD HE WAS BEFORE PASSING SLY AWFUL COMMENTS……….HE IS SO SADLY MISSED BY SO MANY!! RIP HEATH <3
