Having recently opened up about her ex-boyfriend and father of her child in a deeply personal episode of Nightline, it seems that Michelle Williams now regrets giving the interview about Health Ledger. When chatting with the Daily Beast, a frustrated Williams explained, “I just had an experience with Nightline that got edited in such a way that seemed as if I did go too far. It was a three-hour interview that was edited in such a way that was devastating to me.” In addition to producers whittling her words down into sound bites, Williams seems to blame herself in part for saying too much in the interview about ex Heath. “I mean, I am still such the-good-girl. I want everybody to like me. I want everybody to be happy. I want to please people. So that desire in the moment overrode that ‘me’ that is on top of myself, that ‘me’ that is on top of a situation,” Michelle said. Well, if her Golden Globe nomination is any indication, liking Michelle Williams isn’t a problem for the general population, regardless of what she reveals about her personal life.
Chopped-up and reassembled as it may be, it sounds like much of the sentiment expressed in the interview remains true. When asked how her feelings about Ledger might more accurately be expressed, Williams muses, “How do I talk about this? I experienced a lot of loss after his death. I lost my city because of all the paparazzi descending upon us. I actually lost my journal during that time, oddly enough. I literally couldn’t hold on to anything. It felt as if things were literally slipping through my fingers. Things were just streaming away from me. I lost my sense of humor. I’m still sort of looking for that.” Hey, give yourself a break Michelle. Until your funny bone resurfaces, we’ll be happy to act as a back-up for you.
