Australian actor Heath Ledger was slated to become one of the greatest performers of his time. With standout performances in "Brokeback Mountain" and "The Dark Knight," (which garned him dozens of awards and accolades), Ledger was well on his way to cinematic greatness. However, part way through filming "The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus," he was found dead in his New York City apartment. His death was mourned worldwide and had Hollywood greats like Daniel Day-Lewis paying tribute to the legend.
In celebration of what would have been Ledger's 34th birthday (on April 4), we are taking a look back at an old photo of the star. In this snapshot from 2000, we see him attending a premiere with his then-girlfriend, Heather Graham. The pair is decked out in early aughts attire -- she sports a knee-length leather skirt and high boots, while he wears a black leather jacket and wide-leg trousers. Though it's already been five years since his death, Ledger will always be remembered for his raw talent, amazing charisma and daring sense of style.
