I think this is such a sweet story. 

SIENNA MILLER has a special way of remembering her late pal HEATH LEDGER - she wears a pair of pyjamas the actor once gave to her.
The British beauty starred opposite Ledger in 2005's Casanova and the pair became close, socialising with each other after the film had wrapped.
And Ledger gave Miller the comfortable bedwear when she got soaked after falling in the rain after a night out with him and her mother in Venice.
She tells Britain's Telegraph magazine, "Heath and I had this amazing night out in Venice with my mother. It had been pouring with rain. Heath ran out in the middle of St. Mark's square and we were running around, and I slipped over.
"We all ran back to his (apartment) and he gave me these dry pyjamas to get home in."
And the star repaid the favour two years later, when the Brokeback Mountain star struggled to sleep while staying at her house.
She explains, "When he came over to my house last November, and he was having trouble sleeping, I gave them back, to help him sleep."
Ledger, who was found dead at his New York apartment in January (08), was said to have struggled with sleeping, which led him to overdose on the prescribed medication which killed him.
And Miller was so devastated after hearing about Ledger's death earlier this year (08), she asked the tragic star's father Kim to send the pyjamas to her so she would have a keepsake to remember him by.
She adds, "When he died, I was so sad that I didn't have these stupid pyjamas anymore, so his father found them to give to me."




thats sweet and very sad...

What a sweet story Sienna has. I know how much we all love the Heath pajamas Ethan owns from BBM, and they weren't even really his own. I hope she holds onto those forever, it almost worries me that she travels with them, but what I love most of all about the story, is the fact that as heartbroken and depressed as Heath's dad Kim must have been, he still went out of his way to make Heath's friends feel better by finding and giving them things that ment something to them <^(

I love that too Jess. That man has been so gracious to everyone, the general public included through a horrific, uninimaginable time.

Ledger Tribute Planned For Premiere
10 June 2008 6:43 PM, PDT

The premiere of Heath Ledger's final complete film will be dedicated
to the actor - and his family will be the special guests at the event.

The actor's family will make the trip from Australia back to New York,
the city where the star died from an accidental overdose in January,
for the screening of Batman Begins sequel The Dark Knight on 14 July.

Christopher Nolan, the film's director, has also created a memoriam to
the actor, which will be shown at the end of the movie.

http://www.imdb.com/news/ns0000002/#ni0246628

(P.S.:You can find this news at the end of the page)
Ennis’s eyes gone bright with shock, mouth opening then closing again. “Love?” Ennis said finally, voice strangling in his throat.

Jack smiled sad. “Yeah, Ennis. Love.” Leaned forward and kissed Ennis’s temple, whispered, “What’d you think it was, all this time?”

Oh, you're right, I forgot the word 'premiere'.  I'm disappointed but I hope WB will put it up on the official website for us to download after the premiere.

2013??  Jeez.  Actually, my good friend's mother is like best friends with both Wuorinen and Mortier, and we're fantasizing having front-row seats.

Heath ensured daughter would be wealthy:

Like the "source" said, he knew what he was doing. I'm pleased to know he ensured not only his daughter's future, but her mother's too.
