Celebrities Love of Sheepskin

What Do Mila Kunis, Tom Hardy and Matilda Ledger Have in Common? A Love for Sheepskin

It may not seem like Mila Kunis, Tom Hardy and Matilda Ledger – the daughter of actors Heath Ledger and Michelle Williams – would have much in common, besides their celebrity status, of course, but there is one thing that links the three of them together…their love for sheepskin! Whether they are filming a new flick, or, in Matilda’s case, heading into school with Mom, Mila Kunis, Tom Hardy and Matilda Ledger all seem to prefer comfortable sheepskin garments to more extravagant attire.

During a long day of filming her latest movie, Bad Moms, in New Orleans this past January, Mila Kunis slipped on a pair of luxurious sheepskin boots to grab a quick lunch with her co-stars on set. Obviously a big fan of the comfortable footwear, Kunis has been spotted wearing shearling boots on numerous occasions, including while enjoying a romantic walk with her husband, Ashton Kutcher, and while heading to the set of her breakout film, Black Swan, way back in 2009.

Tom Hardy is also a big fan of sheepskin, and, while filming his movie Animal Rescue in New York City last year, the actor donned an attractive blue coat with a comfy sheepskin lining. There was also the stylish shearling bomber coat Hardy sported for an Esquire UK photo shoot last spring, and that iconic trench-style sheepskin coat he wore as Bane in The Dark Knight Rises. Even when he’s not in front of the camera though, the actor tends to gravitate towards the comfort of sheepskin, and who can blame him?

Even 10-year-old Matilda Ledger has the sheepskin look on lock, donning a pair of tan shearling ankle boots while heading to school with her mom, Michelle Williams, in New York City this spring. The spitting image of her late father, Heath Ledger, Matilda is just as fashionable as the Dark Knight star was before his death, and she apparently has the good sense to choose a pair of boots that are both comfortable and stylish for a walk around the city with Mom.
