Someone just bought a piece of the late Heath Ledger.

The actor's busted old and dirty jeans he wore in Brokeback Mountain just sold at auction with the winning bid being somewhere around $21,000.

Nate D. Sanders Auctions sold the 34 x 36 inch Levi's 501 XXs along with a pair of leather gloves that had "Ennis," his character's name, written on them in black faded marker at a price twenty times the original asking amount.

Wowsa.

Considering Heath later went on to win an Oscar posthumously, we can only imagine how much these will be worth in years to come.

Michelle Williams Pixie Cut Short Hair

Awww. This is both really sweet and really sad.

When Michelle Williams isn't wearing wigs for roles, she dons her super cute pixie cut. But not everyone is a fan of it. Her daughter hates it, men aren't attracted to it, etc..

But all that's okay because it's a way for her to memorialize the love of her life — Heath Ledger.

The Marilyn actress explains:

Gemma Ward Opens Up About Heath Ledger

At the end of 2009, model Gemma Ward stepped out of the spotlight after being scrutinized for her weight, but apparently it was more than that.

In a recent interview, the Aussie says Heath Ledger's death was the real reason behind her decision to leave..

Gemma explains:

"I have taken a break from the media spotlight for the past few years and it was something spurred by Heath's death. (Heath and I) first met in New York and we were both struggling with things that I won't get into, and we bonded over that.

I kind of met him at first and said, 'Listen my mum's living with me right now and I'm kind of going through a hard time and I'm not interested in having a serious relationship with somebody right now' and he was like, 'You know, um, let's just be there for each other through these hard times we're both going through'. And we developed a relationship and we started seeing each other."

Once they became official, the two spent the Christmas of 2007 together in Perth.

"The time we spent in Perth was incredible because we were both from Perth and it was also a time when it was beautiful in Perth and both our families were there and we met each other's families. We were able to not be in any kind of a spotlight and not have to be meeting with people or be hounded by press or anything. We lived in a magical kind of world where we weren't intruded upon."

Less than a month later, Heath was found dead in his New York City apartment.

So sad.

Michelle Williams Opens Up To Vogue

| Filed under: Heath LedgerMichelle WilliamsLady GaGaVogueMario Testino

Shot by one of Lady GaGa's favs, photographer Mario Testino captured Michelle Williams looking simply gorgeous in Vogue's October issue.

It's nice to see her looking happy and smiling!

During the interview Michelle opens up to the mag about Heath Ledger's passing and how life has changed.

Below are some of the highlights:

Coping after Ledger's untimely death:
"I was holding it together by a string and a paper clip in the fall and winter. I didn't know if I could keep it all together… You console yourself by saying it's all a deepening process. But it's wired. After the first year, the pain is less intense; it's less immediate. But the magical thinking goes away too. And that's a whole new reckoning. But every time I really miss him and wonder where he's gone, I just look at [Mathilda.]"

The happy times:
"Brokeback Mountain was an unrepeatable moment in time, a very charmed time in my life. I was in love; I was in a movie I was proud to be a part of, and with a beautiful brand-new baby. Everything was good in that moment."

Dealing with the paparazzi presence:
"It's because of this tragedy that there's more paparazzi. That is hard to be graceful and understanding about… It's hard to be the man and the woman in that [paparazzi] situation. Heath always used to do that for us."

On waiting so long before she started to do interviews:
"I didn’t know what my boundaries were for a long time, which made interviews feel very unsafe. I can talk about grief, because that’s mine; about single parenting; about trying to balance work and kids. But what I don’t have to talk about is what happened between Heath and me in our relationship."

On dating while having a daughter:
"I obviously don’t know how to [date with a child, but] I’m falling more and more in love with her and I think she deserves the bulk of my attention. We’re lucky. I can work. She can go to a good school. There’s a lot there for her. And she can know her dad in so many ways, and so many of his friends who will be able to tell her so many stories. His friends, his family — they were a big part of his life, and they will be a big part of her life."

Falling in love:
"I thought falling in love again was the only thing that was going to save me from the pain. This erroneous idea: It just makes things more complicated."

What the future holds:
"I feel hopeful and grateful. For a while I thought we had lost everything. It makes you want to love better and live better and treat people better. There is a great Gloria Steinem quote — and I’m paraphrasing — ‘Become the man you want to marry.’ I’ve taken that on. What qualities do I find attractive, and can I find them in myself? What am I missing? Can I be that for myself?"

Love the shots.

You're looking fabulous 'bb!
