Fashion Disaster: Heath Ledger

June 25th, 2007 // 33 Comments

What happened to Heath? The Editors discuss his (hopefully) temporary lack of hotness after the jump.


Lisa: Heath Ledger spies a photog snapping a pic of him on set whilst he reprises the role of “Eldin the house painter” on the film version of “Murphy Brown.”

J.Harvey: He’s like that guy who hangs out in the coffee shop downtown and thinks his band of extended psychedelic guitar jams that go on for a mind-numbing half hour is awesome and the rest of sociey is full of poseurs and he’s jabbing his finger of insecurity at us for being cattle. Get a job!

Cara: Sweet Jesus! What is going on there Heath? I loved him and his kooky style…I even love Heath candy bars. But this just looks like the creepy guy who drives the ice cream truck around my old hood and always asked if I would like to lick his bomb pop.

    He looks like he lost his job as an actor and is painting houses in the meantime, till something else shows up

    What happened to Heath Ledger? Michelle Williams is what happened to him. He just can’t be bothered to look hot for her…so she finds somebody else.

    The shades, the ragged hair and the “point”… this guy is looking more and more like David Lee Roth. All he needs is a pair shiny spandex pants and the ability to yell “JUMP!” while doing a crotch splitting toe touch.
    Even the mess on his pants screams David Lee.

    Uhh, has Heath Ledger ever been attractive anywhere outside his accent? Cause I’ve never seen it. A young, poc-marked man who’s already losing his hair, and who smokes…Ick!

    LOVE the new site design but with its spiritedly-bright colouring, I’m having a harder time hiding how much time I really spend on here! It’s pretty difficult to pass off a bright green and orange “document” as a pleading.

    Only twice have I thought Heath was hot past the accent – when he ‘sings’ in 10 Things I Hate About you & when he hugs Jake G. from behind in Brokeback Mountain.

    i’d still tap that…

    People are so picky. He has been working on a movie and wants to relax a bit. Why do celebs have to be dressed fit to kill all the time? I have often heard him say he likes to not be noticed so easily and that is why he does this a lot. His hair is like that for his movie, just like other actors get shaggy looking sometimes because of their movie roll. Just because a guys hair starts to receed does not mean he is not still hot. Let the guy relax a bit and not have people bothering him.

    I think he is hot no matter what skinny, fat, hair, bald, etc. I would have him any time. I think he is great.

    everybody’s got the Ray-Ban Wayfarers these days

  9. Kel

    He’s hot. I dig the shades. You socialites need to get a life.

    Am I the only one who sees the second coming of David Lee Roth here?

  14. knotslaning

    Um, I don’t know how many of you live in Brooklyn but this is pretty much how the dudes dress. I like the rugged, artistic, paint-on-the-pants type. It means there is more to this guy than just movies. Keep it up Heath!!!

  15. jenna

    forget david lee roth he channeling Kurt Cobain, any who Heath is still hot. maybe he should try out for kurt in the movie thats in the works

  16. dean

    i think he looks pretty foxy. he’s got a good look goin on.

  17. NJ

    Does he have on Matilda’s sunglasses?

  18. I think he’s hot there. Great hair waving in the breeze. Nice laid back. Great shoes . . . Playful banter with the razzi . . . looks very relaxed and rested.

    Hell, how do you dress when you run out for a coffee or an errand?

    Heath Ledger looks hot in movies, with all the lighting and makeup and digital stuff going on, as most actors do, but in real life he’s UGLY.

    Jude Law is also receding, but he has a beautiful face, even when he’s out and about. Heath Ledger is receding (practically bald without his hair weaves) and is UGLY when he’s out and about. That’s the difference, one is 28, bald and ugly, the other is 40, also bald BUT handsome.

  20. I don’t care what he wears, heath ledger is hott!

  21. Linda

    I still think he is HOT HOT HOT. He looks happy and relaxed. Like some one else said how do you look when you run out for coffee? Do you take a couple of hours to get ready. Who knows maybe he is doing some work around the house and had an urge for a cup of coffee. People are so critical. After all he is not getting ready to walk the red carpet.

He doesn’t look old or ugly. He is even doing some joking with the papps so he must be in a great mood.

BE REAL.

  24. Linda

    Oops, didn’t mean fot that to go on 3 times. SORRY

    I just get so stired up when people put him down so much. He looks great to me.

  25. popinstop

    Jude Law is hot? What planet are you on?
    Heath is hot. He has that NATURAL smile not the fake one of Judes. Heaths accent is sexy. Judes is all plumb in the mouth. Most British people dont talk like Jude Law. An does Jude have morals. NO
    Get a life.

  26. i love you heath ledger yourr burning hot.
    i loved you in “10 things i hate about you.”

    i read this artical and pretty astonished by how people are when some one is alive i wonder if you guys who are so contradicting and so lame mean wat you say now in his passing, just becasue he or someone is in the public eye does not mean they have to lok perfect 100 percent of the time..i bet none of you do and dress up everytime you go out,, put your self in his role with the stress they are unedr from the public, with their jobs and life in gen and all you can do is bytch becasue he is not your type or his jeans are the wrong colour..just becasue so one is famous does notmean they have to dress how we you should think..maybe a late post but better late than never..have a look at your own lives before contradicting someone you dont even really know. RIP Heath Ledger

    Wow what shallow monsters most of you are. He was taking a break from filming the “Dark Knight”.If you were a fan you would know that the hair with the yellow dye and makeup smeared in it still, is from him dressing up as the joker so you and others can be entertained for 2hrs.Why should he put on a 3 piece suit to go grab a coffee? If gross papparazzi did not stalk him we would not even see this photo.Stupid selfish people drove him to insomnia then to pills.You want to know who is responsable for his death? WE ARE! I would give up ever seeing another image of him anywhere if it meant bringing him back to life. Sleep well Heath.May your family get peace.

    Jolie and Sahara: wtf is your problem. Had Heath Ledger NOT died, would you be here espousing how horrible fashion reviewers are for critiquing an evidently poor wardrobe choice on the part of HL? Only in retrospect, can you say, “You ‘shallow monsters,’ how dare you! Can’t you see it was for his movie?” At the time the original post was written, how would anyone know that he was on set for the movie – one that was still a year away from being released? If you look at it from just a pinpoint perspective without knowing this, then yes, he looks pretty darn insane in that getup with that hairdo. Don’t get so high and mighty in your late-coming knowledge.

  31. wtf

    does no-one seriously have nothing better to do then spout off a load of shit about how ‘ugly’ heath ledger looks because he hasn’t spent the whole day slapping on some ‘nicer’ clothes for all you judgemental fuckers who need about ten layers of foundation to cover the marks on your skin. he aint on show for you to judge and study like an object

  32. Michelle

    I just want to say that all of you who sat there and insulted the way Heath Ledger dressed are some of the most insecure, conceited, arrogant, stupid little shits out there.

    NOBODY IS PERFECT. For God’s sake, you are all better than that. Or maybe you’re not….no, probably not…but anyway, could you try to find it in yourselves to realize “Who cares if someone is wearing a weird outfit? WHO CARES?”

    Because I KNOW that none of you really care at all. And if you don’t, then don’t bother leaving an insulting comment.

    And for all of you who loved Heath for his hotness, well take a look. He’s always hot. Even in this picture I see my Heath as flawless. He beats to his own drum, which I personally respect and find very attractive.

    And besides, I really don’t care what he looked like every second of the day. I love him any way he is.

    But now that he is gone, there is no point in dwelling on his appearance or the clothes he wore. It just doesn’t make sense. Focus on the qualities in Heath that you all loved. Maybe his voice, acting, movies, smile. Remember Heath for the good, and not the bad.

    Rest in peace, my dear Heath. And I hope all of you learn.

    Hey CW the answers to your questions are:Yes I would have been here defending Heath BEFORE he died.I have been a fan since he did a tv show on Fox when he was just 17.Yes I knew as well as others that when this photo was posted he was filming DK. I belong to a couple of HL sites/chats and they post photos and this one was up with “HL taking a break from the DK” under it! There is also Google alerts you can sign up for that sends info on whoever or whatever DAILY.You have no idea on being a true fan at all! Or how the internet works. I live in BC Canada and I knew 7 months BEFORE he did Brokeback Mountain that he would be in Fort Mcmurray Alberta filming it.That is how I was able to meet this sweet man.My point was, yes he is not dressed that nice, but why does that matter so? Its dumb to judge people on how they look.I will ALWAYS defend Heath Ledger from all the SHALLOW MONSTERS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Like you.
