Sienna Miller

This definitely gives special meaning to the phrase "giving one's shirt off one's back"—or, in this case, one's blue-checkered PJs.

Sienna Miller poignantly recalls the time when she and her Casanova costar, the late Heath Ledger, went out one night with her mother while shooting in Venice.

"It had been pouring with rain and Heath ran out in the middle of St. Mark's Square and we were running around, and I slipped over on my arse," she tells the U.K.'s Telegraph. "He picked me up and everyone started laughing. We all ran back to his flat and he gave me these dry pyjamas to get home in."

The actress inadvertently held on to them for two years, until last November, when she says Ledger came by her home for a visit.

"He was having trouble sleeping, I gave them back, to help him sleep. When he died, I was so sad that I didn't have these stupid pyjamas anymore, so his father found them to give to me."

Miller has since brought the sleepwear with her to Prague, where she is currently working on the action flick G.I. Joe, along with a CD featuring the music of her friend Tarka Cordell, who also passed away earlier this year.
