Michelle Williams will never be able to get over the death of Heath Ledger.
In a new interview with Porter magazine, due on stands Dec. 2, Williams opens up about raising her young daughter as a single mother.
“In all honesty, for pretty much everything else, I feel like I’m a believer in not fighting circumstances, accepting where you are and where you’ve been. In pretty much all senses but one. I would be able to go totally down that line of thinking were it not for Matilda not having her dad,” the actress said. “You know, that’s just something that doesn’t […] I mean, it just won’t ever be right.”
Williams said that in order to cope with the difficulties, she has turned to other single parents to help her get through it all.
“I know a handful of women in similar positions [to me], it’s kind of like a club. It’s a shitty club and we don’t want any new members […] and all the current members are exhausted,” she said. “But man, oh man, it’s lifesaving to have [them].”
Ledger and Williams started their three year relationship in 2005 after meeting on the set of “Brokeback Mountain.” They welcomed their daughter Matilda in October 2005. Ledger died of an accidental drug overdose at the age of 28 in 2008, one year after their amicable split.
Williams is currently singer and admitted that dating has been a learning process as she is currently raising Matilda, 11, by herself.
“This is not what I imagined. I’m like a cat, I’m a very domestic creature,” she told the magazine. “I just want to stay home and take care of people. But I’m also happy with myself, and just because I might have a desire to be with someone […] that won’t lead me to marry the wrong person.”
