Michelle Williams Opens Up About Life As A Single Mum And Finding Love Again

The actress gets heartbreakingly candid in a new interview

Michelle Williams has opened up in a candid new interview about the heartbreak she felt when she moved out of the Brooklyn home she once shared with Heath Ledger.

Speaking to the Wall Street Journal, the Manchester actress admits she struggled to let go.

“At that time, I was inconsolable, because I felt, ‘How will he be able to find us?'”

“This is where we lived, and he won’t know where we are,” she continued. “And now I can’t believe I thought that. Maybe that’s what’s making me cry is I feel sad for the person who thought he won’t be able to locate [us].”

Health Ledger died at the age of 28 after an accidental overdose leaving behind daughter Matilda, whom he shared with Michelle.

Michelle, 36, also opened up about life as a single parent and the struggles she faces when it comes to parenthood and relationships.

“It’s hard to romanticize romance when you’re 36,” she says. “When you’ve been a parent for 11 years and you’ve done it alone, you don’t have romantic ideals, because you have a practical understanding that you can do it by yourself. The romantic idea of meeting your person and having a storybook family life that looks like the model you grew up with – that doesn’t really exist for me.”

“I’ve not gotten married because I have not had a person to whom I would — so I have not let my sense of conformity or duty override my instincts.”
