When Gabrielle Union went on Watch What Happens Live Thursday night, host Andy Cohen threw in some questions from viewers. One asked Union for her memories about working with the late Heath Ledger on 10 Things I Hate About You. Union remembered the actor fondly, and shared positive stories of meeting him and working with him.

“God, the first time I met him, he had done a movie in Australia and nobody had really heard of him — he was just this mysterious 19-year-old,” Union said. “He told me and everyone else who was over 21 to meet him at the top of the hotel at this bar, and we walk in, and he’s just got this wild hair. Again, he’s 19, but he’s got a dad drink. He was such a man, such a gentleman, and his girlfriend at the time was like 38. He was great, warm, funny. We had a lot of fun. I thought all movies were like that.”

“I’m so glad I got to ask you that question, because I just remembered Bravo plays that movie like once a day,” Cohen said.
