The Daily Hotness: Heath Ledger

Today would have been Heath Ledger’s 29th birthday (it’s also the 40th Anniversary of Martin Luther King’s death, lest you think we’ve forgotten what’s really important). While we’re still so sad that Heath left the world in such a tragic and unexpected way, we can’t wait to see his final contribution to the film industry in the upcoming Batman: Dark Knight. The Joker is suddenly one sexy bastard. [Just Jared] Keep reading »

    Michelle Williams Asks For Peace And Privacy

    A couple days ago I wrote a post about my shameful fascination with Michelle Williams in the aftermath of Heath Ledger’s death. After remaining mum while weathering the non-stop harassment of paparazzi, she has issued a statement through her publicist, saying:

    “Please respect our need to grieve privately. My heart is broken. I am the mother of the most tender-hearted, high-spirited, beautiful little girl who is the spitting image of her father. All that I can cling to is his presence inside her that reveals itself every day. His family and I watch Matilda as she whispers to trees, hugs animals, and takes steps two at a time, and we know that he is with us still. She will be brought up with the best memories of him.”

    You’ve got it, girl.

    Heath Ledger: Our Fascination With Celebrity Grief

    I can’t decide who I’m more disgusted by: the paparazzi who camped out in front of Michelle Williams’ Brooklyn home and snapped a photo of her with baby Matilda, the gossip websites who bought and posted both the pictures and the video (Us Weekly and TMZ, we’re talking about you), or myself, for actually giving them what they wanted for it — page views. Needless to say, Heath Ledger’s death has been eating at me and lots of other women I know, but I’ll only speak for myself.

    Outside of the fact that I clearly get a lil’ too much out of watching the lives of celebrities, this particular event is hitting kind of hard. I watched the tape of Michelle Williams arriving home, surrounded by paparazzi, with a sad fascination with the pain she must be going through, because I can’t imagine it myself. Obviously Heath was talented, but more than that, he was young and he was a father. I don’t know many 20-something fathers and I certainly don’t know anyone in my age group that has died so suddenly and with that much to lose. Maybe it’s the fact that kids and marriage are not far off in my future and the thought of losing someone at this age, and having a child, is an unimaginable tragedy. Watching Michelle gives a little glimpse into what that might be like. Her pain doesn’t give me pleasure, by any means, but I’m truthfully very sad for her and strangely curious to see how she handles it, as if it might reflect back what I would do and feel in the same instance.

    Star Couplings: Eva Longoria Gets Inked

  • File this one under biggest mistakes ever — Eva Longoria Parker got her hubby Tony’s jersey number tattooed on her neck. Worked for Angelina and Billy Bob! [DListed]
  • The latest rumor surrounding the death of our beloved Heath Ledger is that he was dating Mary-Kate Olsen and that’s why the masseuse who discovered his body called the pint-sized mogul who was thousands of miles away first instead of 911. Ugh. [US Weekly]
  • Britney is back together with her pap boyfriend, Adnan Ghalib, despite the fact that he gave a really creepy interview about her to Entertainment Tonight. I am so over this poop. [Perez Hilton]
  • Star magazine is reporting that Jamie-Lynn Spears is going to give her baby up for adoption. HA! Like she would be that smart. [DListed]

    The Daily Squeeze: Lady On A Leash, Protests At Heath’s Funeral, And Sexy Church Billboards

  • A British woman is upset because she and her boyfriend weren’t allowed to board a bus – because she was being led around on a leash. Maybe she should keep the S&M in the bedroom. [Asylum]
  • Members of the Westboro Baptist Church plan to protest at Heath Ledger’s funeral, saying Heath’s role in Brokeback Mountain made him a “fag-enabler.” So nice of them to bring the doom, gloom, and total effing nuttiness to an already tragic affair. [Queerty]
  • A church in Jacksonville, FL, is using super sexy billboards to attract people to its series of sermons on sex in Christian life. “[God] wants us to have great sex, but he wants us to have it in his parameters,” the church’s pastor said. Like that time we boinked in the confessional? [Local6.com]
