Michelle Williams Speaks on Heath Ledger, Can't Find Meaning in Actor's Death

by at . Comments

Michelle Williams is still struggling to find meaning in the passing of ex-husband Heath Ledger.

In an interview with Nightline that aired last night, the Blue Valentine star said: "I can find meanings in things and people and relationships that have sprung up and friendships that have strengthened. I found a lot of meaning in that... but not in ‘why.’”

Williams battled back tears at many points in the discussion, touching on a range of subjects that included the months that followed Ledger's death, as well as the state of the couple's child, Matilda.

Excerpts are below.

On the years after his death: “In a strange way, I miss that year, because all those possibilities that existed then are gone. It didn’t seem unlikely to me that he could walk through a door or could appear behind a bush. It was a year of very magical thinking, and in some ways I’m sad to be moving further and further away from it.”

On providing Matilda with a normal childhood: “It’s going well. We’re doing a good job of it. It is of more importance to me than anything in my life. I would rearrange anything to make that possible. If something starts to encroach on that it’s going to be removed from the equation.”

They were never officially married because she didn't want to marry him like that. They were committed for Matilda. I'm glad she is doing better. I lost my husband the same way a year later and still coaping.
