This was 17 years ago?!?!
The iconic actress stopped by Watch What Happens Live! on Thursday night to promote her Christmas comedy alongside Mo’Nique and Omar Epps — and in typical Andy Cohen fashion, ended up sharing more than she probably intended!
That’s because a call-in question all about Heath Ledger made for quite the sentimental moment from Gabby!
“God, the first time I met him, he had done a movie in Australia and nobody had really heard of him — he was just this mysterious 19-year-old. He told me and everyone else who was over 21 to meet him at the top of the hotel at this bar, and we walk in, and he’s just got this wild hair. Again, he’s 19, but he’s got a dad drink. He was such a man, such a gentleman, and his girlfriend at the time was like 38. He was great, warm, funny. We had a lot of fun. I thought all movies were like that.”
That sure sounds like the man we know and love!
Rest in peace, Heath.
