Heath Ledger has been gone now for five years, but his legacy will live on for years to come. Ledger’s sister Elana Rosa teamed up with Naomi Watts’ photographer brother Ben to create this t-shirt for charity, the very first product that will be sold with the approval of his estate and family.
According to E! Online,
The tee features a photo—taken by Ben Watts in 2004—of the Australian thesp in chill skater mode in Los Angeles. That was right around the time Ledger was shooting the based-on-a-true-story skateboarding movie Lords of Dogtown.
Heather Ledger’s father spoke out after the Dark Knight Rises theater shooting, “Heath loved skateboarding and wanted to do a shoot he enjoyed,” Watts recalled to Reuters about the day he took the picture, calling it “a really enjoyable day and definitely one to remember. At one stage we were towing him with a car going like 40 miles per hour through the L.A. River, it was amazing.”
For those of you wanting to get your hands on one of these limited edition t-shirts, one will cost you $110. All proceeds are going to go to charity with part going to a scholarship fund set up in Ledger’s name as well as his favorite charities.
