Patrick Verona (Heath Ledger - "10 Things I Hate About You") will forever be one of the biggest 90's movie heart-throbs to ever have been created. He was a portrayed as a "bad boy" but he was genuine, caring, kind, funny, honest, romantic, and not to mention handsome... What's not to love? There are so many times that Patrick Verona proves to be one of the most swoon-worthy characters to come out of any film. From saying the words "hey there, girly", to taking care of his drunk date, to serenading the girl he likes. I have narrowed it down to the 10 most Patrick Verona swoon-worthy moments that were given to us in "10 Things I Hate About You".
