Michelle Williams Tells Marie Claire Reese Witherspoon Offered Her Good Advice 2011-01-12 17:30:00

Michelle Williams Tells Marie Claire About the "Hole" in Her Life and Thanks Reese For Her Good Advice

Michelle Williams smiled big for the February cover of US Marie Claire and the accompanying photo shoot. Their interview is the actress' latest about Blue Valentine, after she attended a weekend Q&A. She took last night off from chatting, though, to hit the National Board of Review Awards with Ben Affleck, Jennifer Garner and more. Michelle spoke to Marie Claire recently about her work, losing Heath Ledger, how yoga helped her heal, and Reese Witherspoon's good advice. She said:

  • On Heath's absence from her and Matilda's lives: "Very obviously, for me and for her, there's a hole in our life. Of course the natural inclination is to want to fill it and make it disappear, but what I've come to recently is that it's impossible. Nothing will fit in that hole because what we want back we can't get, which is this one person. I'm not going to rush anything and scamper around like a mad person and make myself crazy. I'm trying to be respectful of the absence. I'm not trying to fill it up. It is what it is."
  • On her and Matilda's idea of perfect guys: "I don't know what my version of a relationship or marriage is yet, because the typical model seems a little broken to me. At the same time, I was raised on all those princess fairy tales and I'm a romantic; I want to be a one-man girl. I took Matilda to Disney World recently and we saw all the princesses, and then she turned around and said, 'OK, now I'd like to see where all the princes are.' The Disney person said, 'Nobody has ever asked me that before. There aren't any princes here, honey.'"
  • On getting advice from Reese Witherspoon: "To give credit where credit is due, I was sharing a difficulty I was experiencing with Reese Witherspoon, and she said, ‘Yes, I understand, but think about how much more difficult this would be without the luxury of a reliable, steady income."
