Gemma Ward Page 1
Gemma Ward was unquestionably one of the hottest models of the mid-aughts, walking for every major fashion house, covering nearly every international Vogue (including the model-averse American edition), and landing campaigns for everyone from Prada to Dior. In fact, she was near the top of her game when she abruptly left the industry in 2008, leaving behind legions of fans to move back to her hometown of Perth, Australia.
Once a model, always a model? In Gemma Ward‘s case, not quite. After watching her serenade a sailor in Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, we’ve been waiting with not-quite-bated breath to see her transformation into a roaring Twenties stunner as Catherine in Baz Luhrman’s adaptation of The Great Gatbsy.
Gemma Ward may have less than a few minutes of screentime in the recently released Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, but that doesn’t mean the fashion press (us included) hasn’t been feverishly covering every last tidbit of her role.
Though the two were rumored to be dating before his death in January of 2008, Gemma Ward has just now for the first time spoken publicly about her relationship with Heath Ledger.

Gemma Ward, who is set to appear in the upcoming “Pirates of the Caribbean” movie, has made the model-to-actress transition that so many beautiful young women attempt and few are able to manage. Let’s just hope she can keep it up.
It’s a well known fact that models are their own breed of humans, with especially elongated limbs, luminescent skin, and arresting features which may vary from doll-like to alien-esque to sex-kittenish and back again. But what’s even more fascinating about these strange, vaunted creatures is that while the originality of their looks is what gets them paid, they have an eery tendency to look, well, strikingly like each other. And so, here are seven sets of long-lost model twins who have us seriously questioning our eyesight when it comes to their remarkable resemblance.
Remember a few years ago when Gemma Ward dominated the modeling business? The doe-eyed Australian beauty had magazine covers galore and campaigns with major brands of all stripes and colors. And then she disappeared for a while. But now she’s back with a small speaking role in the new Pirates of the Caribbean movie.
