Heath Ledger is a Different Stripe

Heath Ledger is a Different Stripe

Style king Heath Ledger takes stripes to the extreme as he reviews his lines for the the new Terry Gilliam fantasy adventure The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus on Sunday in London.

The 28-year-old actor was seen wearing black-and-red-striped fingerless gloves as well as orange-black-gray-and-white socks over his jeans. Top that off with an oversized purple beanie and purple shoes with orange laces… and you’ve got one striped-crazed Heath Ledger!

Model Lily Cole and 2’8″ costar Verne Troyer were also spotted on set. Heath‘s jeans by Ksubi.

10+ pictures inside of Heath Ledger of a different stripe…

    He is a brilliant actor.

  • Nina

    Ok Jared don´t you have anything else to post then this. It so doesn´t matter what Heath is wearing. He can wear whatever he likes. I honestly didn´t know we are still in kindergarten.

  • [~F a m o u s~]

    fcuking bum. lol

  • Helena

    Well considering he’s filming a movie, he’s not ‘copying Johnny Depp’s style’.

  • http://myspace/muffymutt zanessafan-

    He is hot

  • Belinda

    I can’t believe he’s doing another Terry Gilliam movie after The Brothers Grimm.

  • The Arab Aquarius

    to the people shooting down his style or look, its a movie, a charachter. The director controls what the look of the movie is.
    I do like it, and he does have quirky personal style.

    I adore Heath. But he does have issues, I think He was so hot in I’m Not There, then I see him like this and he looks like a homeless person. And even if he is wearing designer jeans, Look at his hands and his fingernails. Does he bathe? Is he having substance abuse issues? What is his problem??? Why does a man who really is a hot looking guy, deliberately make himself totally unattractive. Maybe Michelle Williams dumped him bcz he refuses to wash up. I have a theory. I think he never got over Naomi Watts. I think she broke up with him and everyone he is with kind of resembles her. Even this new skinny model he is supposed to be dating.

    #22, Heath supposedly dumped Naomi for Michelle, that’s why i doubt he isn’t over her. Oh and i don’t think Michelle dumped him, it was the other way around.

  • Buckeyegurl

    I hope this is for a movie, otherwise he looks like a crackhead. Crack is whack Heath!

  • Ina

    I love is style and the way he doesn´t care!

  • black

    Trying way too hard to be cool………..ts, a tragedy….in his age.

    He has more in common with Keanu Reeves than Johnny Depp as far as his appearance off set. Keanu is another guy fighting the hot when he isn’t working.

  • the shiznack

    how the hell is lily cole a model she is such a butta

  • Anon

    Johnny Depp never looked filthy. He looked bizarre. He looked like he was having fun. He looked like he was pulling off a joke, but he never looked physically dirty. Sorry. But I agree with # 22 somewhat. I think Heath and Naomi had a more complicated relationship than people realize. She sent him on his way with good grace. They were still friends. Even after they broke up, he used to ask her for advice. She told him to take the part in Brokeback. He introduced Michelle to her, too. Whether he is still in love with her, or not I couldn’t say. And the model he is reportedly dating looks emaciated. Like a crack version of Michelle. Who was already too skinny.

  • barbara

    Heath and Naomi were still together when she told him to take the part in Brokeback. That i know for sure. But i seriously doubt they are still friends. I read somewhere when he met her in Australia in a restaurant after the break up, she ignored him. That doesn’t sound very friendly to me. They broke up May 2004, the same month he officially hooked up with Michelle, some speculate he dumped Naomi for Michelle. Oh and his new supposed girlfriend isn’t as thin as you describe her #33!

  • Anon

    Sounded like he and Michelle had a mutual attraction for each other during Brokeback Mtn. filming. Wasn’t it after she fall off the sled, they couldn’t keep away from each other, and moved into same trailer? From there it went to travels, nominations, parenting of Matilda. It’s a shame they split, but will always have the little one as a reminder of each other. I think Heath is a different, restless kind of guy.

  • Heathfan12

    I think he looks GREAT. He is doing a movie role. and besides Heath marches to the beat of a different drummer. And I love him for it. He is NOT Hollywood, never wants to be part of that scene. And I think it makes him ever better for it. He is a brilliant actor and a loving caring father.

    I can’t wait to see this movie!

  • chris

    Anon: Do you think anybody with brains gives a f*ck what you think about this, that and the other? And your comment “Wasn’t it after she fall off the sled” shows how grammar-challenged you are. The correct English would be “Wasn’t if after she FELL off the sled:…etc. Apparently you can’t tell a past tense from a present tense. You are a typical brainless celebrity poster, assuming that your opinions about them are of importance to the world. In fact they are important to nobody but yourself.

  • chris

    “Look at his hands and his fingernails. Does he bathe? Is he having substance abuse issues? What is his problem???” says Anon.

    Dear Anon: Why don’t you ask him directly? Don’t have his telephone number? Then ask his agent. Or is finding out who his agent is a bit too complex for you? Maybe you would get some answers to your idiotic questions.

  • Perthgirl

    I’ve read in the internet that he was seen out and about with Lily Cole, all over her, but now they say he’s with Gemma Ward, who is also from Perth, like Heath and they spent the Christmas holidays together. About Heath and Naomi. I think he didn’t want to break with her but because time was running out for her to become a mother and he wasn’t ready to take that ‘step’ of marrying her, which she expected if they were to form a family, at least an ‘engagement’, he knew he had to let her go….his way of doing it was to get involved with Michelle Williams….which broke Naomi Watts heart, and even more so when months later, the spiteful Michelle got pregnant on purpose, shortly after hearing how Heath had turned up at a restaurant Naomi was eating to talk to her. She freaked out and got herself pregnant. It’s natural that they broke up, he wasn’t ever that into her, not like he was into Naomi. Michelle proved to be a bit of a shit anyway. Most ex-fans hate her now, because her attitude totally changed and she took her personal frustrations with Heath out with everybody. I love Heath. He isn’t perfect, does plenty of mistakes, but he has paid for it and whoever. Anybody was and will be better than Michelle Williams, who sucked all the sexiness and happiness out of the guy. Even the BBM board hate her now.

  • tami

    #39, that must have sucked for Naomi. They break up because he’s not ready for fathrhood and then goes and knocks up Michelle Wiliams. I can imagine how Naomi must have felt like.

  • Anon

    Sorry Chris,,,, I am the one who accidentally hit the”a” in the word fell. I suppose you never make a mistake? BTW, there are different “anons” posting here., #33 isn’t me. I doubt any of us have the real scoop on the Heath / Michelle relationship, nor Naomi and him. Although the things I wrote had been in news stories and interviews with them and other people on the set of the movie.

  • Christina Bengtson

    How to contact Heath Ledger personal directly.

  • another anon

    Sorry… I had to comment. Dumb highlights of the thread:

    “Ok Jared don´t you have anything else to post then this. It so doesn´t matter what Heath is wearing. He can wear whatever he likes. I honestly didn´t know we are still in kindergarten. ”

    “disgusting and he has issues. ”

    “sorry Ledger you cant copy the style
    of Johnny Depp! ”

    “I hope this is for a movie, otherwise he looks like a crackhead. Crack is whack Heath!”

    “Trying way too hard to be cool………..ts, a tragedy….in his age.

    —————–You´re not Johnny Depp————————————— ”


    Newsflash… movie! It’s a movie!! Amazing. His image is as the Director pleases. He’s not trying to be cool or Johnny Depp. He’s trying to play a character. If the character looks cool to you then maybe it worked.

    Sorry, I don’t normally comment on stuff like that but the idiocy there was overwhelming.

    This is Gilliam’s next movie and it’s going to be great. I read a version of the script.

  • anon

    LOL nope, not for the film. These aren’t the costumes for Parnassus. These are rehearsal pics, and the cast is in their own clothes.

    Personally, I LOVE it; it’s darling! Who knew people were still wearing leg-warmers! LOL Heath just has a quirky sense of style; although I don’t see why anyone would really care.

    Heath’s actually a really clean person, just doesn’t spend a lot of time coiffing and sometimes doesn’t bother to shave. But he is washed. He smells softly masculine (really sexy) with a hint of ciggy. He’s also very well grounded, and in a one-on-one situation, he listens intently, speaks thoughtfully & intelligently, and very softly. He pretty much has himself together and is fairly self-assured in who he is, doesn’t really worry what anyone else thinks, and lacks affectation and pretention.

    He’s also a brilliant businessman, which few people know.

    As for the Naomi issue. Waaay off. What people THINK happened in both his last relationships is not even close. The tabloid stories and blogger’s comments are far more salacious and I’m sure more fun for everyone, but they’re completely off the mark.

  • anon from above (#44)

    Above post ^

    I am not any of the previous anons. ;)

  • chris

    #44 Nice to know you are so intimate with Heath that you know how he smells. Now did you smell every nook and cranny of his, or just get a general whiff as he brushed by? LOL

    SO SAD..

    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!

    Mary Frye (1932)
