Michelle Williams Talks About Heath Ledger, Finding New Love


Even before Heath Ledger‘s tragic death last year, Michelle Williams had shown herself to be an impressively classy, stunning and intelligent woman – and by not selling out her grief since his untimely passing, we girl-crushed on her even more. Now she’s gracing the front cover of Vogue looking gorgeous and has spoken about how she dealt with the pain of losing her daughter Matilda’s father.

“After the first year, the pain is less intense – it’s less immediate. But the magical thinking goes away too. And that’s a whole new reckoning. But every time I really miss him and wonder where he’s gone, I just look at her,” she says.

Michelle also opens up about finding a new relationship after Heath – she dated director Spike Jonze last year. “I thought falling in love again was the only thing that was going to save me from the pain. This erroneous idea: It just makes things more complicated.” We hope that nearly two years on from Heath’s death, this cool lady finally finds some peace and her own happy ending. [Photo: WireImage]

Heath’s Ex Michelle Lands Hot Indie Director

Good for Michelle Williams. The girl undoubtedly has had what one might call a shitty year, so it’s nice to see that she’s found love with one of Drew Barrymore‘s many rejects, Spike Jonze. The dude is every indie girl’s fantasy, as the director of skateboarding videos (and, oh, amazing movies like Adaptation) and the ex of alt-chick idol, Sophia Coppola. Also, he’s Oscar-nominated, ladies, and apparently treats Michelle and her elfish little daughter extremely well.

“Spike had a gentle way of just being there for Michelle. There was no pressure for her to spend time with him – he just wanted to be a loving, supportive shoulder for Michelle to cry on.” Yep, that’s a source dishing on their romance. Apparently all these people are poets in their spare time, too.
