View in slideshow Michelle Williams in GQ.

Michelle Williams showed some skin in lingerie for the February cover of US GQ. The actress is fresh off a big win at Monday's Golden Globes, where she won best actress in a comedy or musical for My Week With Marilyn. She toasted her new statue at The Weinstein Company's after party, but was spotted at LAX yesterday afternoon ready to take off for her next adventure. She opened up to the magazine recently about her experiences channelling Marilyn Monroe. Things also got more personal, as Michelle spoke about Heath Ledger, their first meeting, and more. She told GQ:

  • On why she and Heath were drawn together: "There's an answer that I know, but I don't want to say . . . Our initial meeting, the circumstances of how we first met, were cosmic or something . . . Yeah, a lot of things happened at once. It's a bit like: we had a lot of things to do because we didn't have a lot of time, or something."
  • On dealing with his death: "Moments that were strung like beads on a thread . . . and they were very far apart from each other. I mean, it sounds so silly, but a just-right cup of tea. I spent a lot of time taking baths. A lot of tea and baths — double warm."
  • On giving up the idea of giving Matilda a close sibling: "I really wanted, and I really expected or imagined, that Matilda would have siblings that were close to her age. I wanted that for her. But I couldn't make that happen. And now that she's six, that isn't even a possibility anymore. So something that was making me feel impatient, that's been removed. For whatever reason, that's not our luck, or our path."
