I hate the way you talk to me, and the way you cut your hair.

I hate the way you drive my car, I hate it when you stare.

I hate your big, dumb combat boots and the way you read my mind.


I hate you so much it makes me sick — It even makes me rhyme.

I hate the way you’re always right. I hate it when you lie.

I hate it when you make me laugh — Even worse when you make me cry.

I hate it when you’re not around. And the fact that you didn’t call.

But mostly I hate the way I don’t hate you — Not even close, not even a little bit, not even at all.

– Kat’s poem  to Patrick

Nineteen years ago, everyone fell in love with an American romantic comedy film that modernised William Shakespeare’s late 16th century comedy “The Taming of the Shrew.” Everyone rooted for bad boy Patrick (Heath Ledger) when he wooed uptight Kat (Julia Stiles) to be his date for the prom.

At the time, everyone was reciting the poem that Kat recited for Patrick.

Before Heath Ledger became the appalling Joker in The Dark Knight, he was once this high school heartthrob and the brooding type who sang “Can’t Take My Eyes Off of You.”
