As 10 Things I Hate About You celebrates its 25th anniversary, the film’s poignant moments and enduring impact still entertain audiences. Julia Stiles’ tearful poem reading, penned for Heath Ledger’s character Patrick, remains a powerful reminder of the film’s timeless romance.

Krumholtz respectfully declined to divulge details about Ledger, emphasizing the privacy of their friendship. He acknowledged Ledger’s sweetness and friendship, emphasizing the importance of respecting his privacy, especially since his passing.

In the film, Ledger’s character is pivotal in the scheme devised by Michael and Cameron, played by Joseph Gordon-Levitt, to win Bianca’s heart by dating her sister Kat.

Gordon-Levitt, notably, maintains a connection with Krumholtz, and occasional reconnections with Keegan. While Krumholtz admires Union’s talent, he humorously remarks on the challenges of getting her attention on social media. However, his fondness for his former castmates remains evident, particularly for Oleynik, with whom he sporadically keeps in touch.

Beyond their roles in 10 Things I Hate About You, Gordon-Levitt and Ledger found success in Christopher Nolan’s films. Ledger’s iconic portrayal of the Joker in The Dark Knight earned him posthumous acclaim, including an Oscar. Meanwhile, Gordon-Levitt’s character, John Blake, played a significant role in The Dark Knight Rises, hinting at his future as Batman’s successor.

As the film’s anniversary prompts reflection on its enduring legacy, it’s clear that 10 Things I Hate About You continues to resonate with audiences, showcasing the timeless allure of Shakespearean romance reinvented for a modern audience.
