It’s been almost a decade since one of the hottest actors to ever grace the silver screen’s life was sadly cut short due to drug abuse, which is apparently only cute in the movies. I’m talking, of course, about Heath Ledger, the aussie heartthrob who burst into our lives by singing “Can’t Take My Eyes Off Of You” to Julia Stiles in 10 Things I Hate About You. Heath managed to do something most men can never dream of doing, aka “keep our attention,” through a long career or very good movies like A Knight’s Tale, Brokeback Mountain, and your college ex’s favorite, The Dark Knight. It’s not often that a man can play both Jake Gyllenhaal’s gay cowboy lover and The Joker and still be our #1 Hollywood crush, but Ledger managed to do it. And we’ll forgive him for both being in a movie with Anne Hathaway, and for spawning the “Why So Serious?” meme that still tortures us all to this day.
Sadly, in 2008 Heath’s
hottness talent was cut short, and we were all left wondering when we’d ever get a taste of his incredible body acting abilities ever again. However, thanks to a new documentary on Spike TV, we will all be able to bask in Heath’s incredible Australian Accent/Good Bone Structure combo once again with their upcoming documentary I Am Heath Ledger. The trailer is out now, but I suggest you grab a few tissues and a comfort animal before diving in. The mere sight of Heath’s freckles is enough to make any self respecting straight human with even a casual interest in sex with men totally lose their shit.
We warned you.
