Naomi Watts has paid tribute to late actor Heath Ledger on what would have been his 39th birthday.

The actress, who once dated the Australian actor, posted a photograph of the pair on Instagram to mark Ledger’s birthday on April 4.

“Happy birthday to this darling heart,” she wrote.

“We will never forget you… #heathledger #rip.”

Ledger died of an accidental overdose of prescription drugs in January 2008. He was 28.

Watts also posted a message on Instagram in January to mark the 10th anniversary of his death.

“He was a true original,” she said at the time.

“Heart always on his sleeve, with the most powerful charisma, strength, humor and talent. I will never forget his gentle spirit.”
