Michelle Williams loves her short hair.

Former Dawson’s Creek beauty Michelle Williams covers the December issue of British Elle. The actress who is set to star in My Week With Marilyn, talks about her pixie-styled haircut.

Williams reveals that one reason she keeps her cropped do is because of her daughter’s late father, Heath Ledger. “What Matilda would love is for her mom to grow out the cropped hair, though that’s unlikely to happen any time soon. I cut it for the one straight man who has ever liked short hair and I wear it in memorial of somebody who really loved it.”

Williams adds, “I’ve really grown into it – I feel like myself with short hair. And it’s been a really long time since I had long hair, five years. Of course, the only people who like it are gay men and my girlfriends. Straight men across the board are not into this hair!”

Take a look below at Williams‘ hair throughout the past five years!
