20 Photos That You'll Have To Look At Twice To Fully Understand
The whole world was shocked upon the untimely demise of this very talented actor, Heath Ledger who died of cardiac arrest about ten years ago which was stimulated by an acute intoxication resulting from consuming a combination of prescription medication and sleeping pills.
He was survived by his adorable daughter, Matilda. The world knew how much he adored his daughter! While talking about her, he had once said,
"Matilda is adorable and beautifully observant and wise. Michelle and I love her so much. Becoming a father exceeds all my expectations. It's the most remarkable experience I've ever had—it's marvellous,"
Gerry Grennell who was Ledger's dialect coach and a friend also revealed about the same. He even told how badly he missed his daughter and his family in the final days of his life.
Matilda was born on October 28, 2005, about a year after Ledger and Michelle began dating. They met each other on the sets of Brokeback Mountain.
In the year 2007, the couple decided to part ways, although they remained friends until the untimely demise of the actor.
Matilda was just 2 years old when Ledger passed away, hence, Michelle kept her protected in every way she can. She kept her out of the public eye!
Michelle even released a public statement after the death of Ledger highlighting how she wanted some privacy that she deserved! It said, "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 in the best memories of him"
Later in 2016, in an interview, she told about how she raised Matilda all by herself in all these years and what all challenges she faced, she said, "In all honesty, for pretty much everything else, I feel like I'm a believer in not fighting circumstances, accepting where you are and where you've been. In pretty much all senses but one," Williams said.
"I would be able to go totally down that line of thinking were it not for Matilda not having her dad. You know, that's just something that doesn't... I mean, it just won't ever be right.”
Matilda is surely growing up gorgeously having the same energy as that of Ledger and Michelle is still trying her best to protect her baby daughter who's 12 years old now from the media fanfare!
Although Michelle tried keeping her out of the public eye, her photos have been widely circulated in the media. Here's her picture from the year 2015 while she was going to the school camp!
Doesn't she look absolutely adorable in this picture?
You can't help but notice how much she takes after her father, the legendary Heath Ledger, not just in her energy, but in her looks as well!
