Michelle Williams's Short Hair Is in 'Memorial of Somebody Who Really Loved It'

She’s rocked her super-short hairstyle for a while now, and Michelle Williams says she’s not planning to lengthen her locks in the near future.

“What [daughter] Matilda would love is for her mum to grow out the cropped hair,” the actress tells Elle U.K. “Though that’s unlikely to happen any time soon.”

Though Matilda might not be happy with mom’s hair, Williams believes she’s “really grown into” her pixie cut. “I feel like myself with short hair,” she says. “And it’s been a really long time since I had long hair, five years.”

Williams reveals that her decision to go short was an intensely personal one, possibly in tribute to her former partner, Heath Ledger. “I cut it for the one straight man who has ever liked short hair,” she says, “and I wear it in memorial of somebody who really loved it.”

But Williams, who sports longer blonde hair in her upcoming film My Week With Marilyn, says the list of short-hair fans pretty much ends there. “The only people who like it are gay men and my girlfriends,” she admits. “Straight men across the board are not into this hair!”

This cut belongs to her!! Always thought she looked amazing with it!! She grew it out for a while and then she did it again and I was trilled. It’s her look, she rocks it.
