Miley Cyrus certainly has a type and she is quick to tell the world what she likes. The singer took to Instagram on Tuesday and shared several photos of Heath Ledger. Miley wrote the word, “Type” on each of the pictures.
Now that she revealed the late, great actor is the kind of guy she likes (Ledger was a lot of people’s type) and it is safe to assume that her current boyfriend, Cody Simpson, is her type, it is logical to draw comparisons between them. But what did “The Dark Knight” actor have in common with Simpson?
The most obvious comparison is that they are both Australian. Heath was born in Perth and Cody was born in Gold Coast. Those cities are on the complete opposite sides of the continent and are separated by over 4,000 kilometers but for the sake of this article, let’s say they have a similar place of origin.
Heath starred in several Australian movies and tv shows before his big break out role in the 1999 movie, “10 Things I Hate About You.” He was 20-year-old when he worked on that project. Cody came to the United States for work much younger, he put out his first album at the age of 15.
Miley is into more than just geography and accents though. Simpson and Ledger both have nice blond hair. The two stars have styled their hair differently to match the fashion of the time but they both look great with short or long hair.
They are both considered tall, Cody is 6′ and Heath was 6’1″. The two Aussies also have a similarly athletic build which obviously tickles Cyrus’ fancy. Simpson showed off his broad shoulders and solid chest while slow dancing in a video that Miley shared on social media.
Ledger was a great actor and Simpson is a great musician so the practiced different artforms but they are/were at the top of their respected fields. Cyrus clearly likes the artist type.
Their passion for their work is another comparison that can be drawn between Heath and Cody. Ledger’s passion came across when he committed himself to the role of the Joker and it is clear that Simpson is passionate based on the make-out sessions they share on Instagram.
Miley’s ex, Liam Hemsworth also matches most of the Heath Ledger comparisons. He is Australian, he is 6’3″, a passionate actor, and has great blond hair.
After Liam and Miley split, the “She Is Coming” singer had a brief fling with Kaitlynn Carter. I know what you are thinking, Kaitlynn does not match any of those qualities other than the hair color but sometimes you have to branch out to figure out what you want.
Miley seems to have figured out that she wants Cody and she proved it by taking the 22-year-old to her brother Braison’s wedding this past weekend. Miley shared several photos from the wedding and some featured Cody posing with her family.
“My baby brother got married on the most stunning sunny Tennessee day standing on top of the same hills where we grew up playin….,” Miley wrote in the caption of her post. “I love you Braison. So happy for you & Stella.”
