Michelle Williams Says Raising Her Daughter Without Heath Ledger "Won't Ever Be Right"

29 November 2016 8:59 AM, PST | | See recent Popsugar news »

Michelle Williams is one of Hollywood's most private celebrities, but she's always been incredibly forthright about the ups and downs of being a single mom to 11-year-old daughter Matilda. Since the death of Heath Ledger in 2008, Michelle's former boyfriend and Matilda's father, the Certain Women actress has been raising their child on her own and discussed how it's affected her dating life in the latest issue of Porter magazine. Luckily, Michelle has the support of close friend Busy Philipps, whom she shares a hilarious (or hilariously depressing?) anecdote about, and is creating plenty of Oscar buzz for her role in Manchester by the Sea. Check out what she had to say ahead, and to see the full interview with Michelle, buy the latest issue of Porter, which hits stands on Dec. 2.

Michelle Williams Says Raising Daughter Matilda Without Heath Ledger 'Won't Ever Be Right'

29 November 2016 6:35 AM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Michelle Williams admits that her life at 36 isn't what she imagined.

In an interview with the December issue of Porter magazine, the actress opens up about raising her daughter, Matilda, without Heath Ledger, who died in January 2008 when his daughter was just 2 years old. "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," Williams explains. "I would be able to go totally down that line of thinking were it not for Matilda not having her dad. You know, that's just something that doesn't… I mean, it just won't ever be right."

The Manchester By the Sea star adds that being a single mother is a constant challenge. "Talk about a learning process. I think, God, what would I say about it?" she says. "I feel really sensitive about it and certainly »

If you’ve not yet submitted to the fact that Christmas starts the day after Halloween, or, at the very latest, the day after Thanksgiving, prepare for this clip of Busy Philipps and Jason Biggs to shove you gently into the holiday spirit.

Philipps has partnered up with Diy mecca Michael’s for a series of celeb-studded and seriously festive craft-offs. Her first video saw the actress facing off with recently anointed domestic diva Snoop Dogg, to make some glittery ornaments. Spoiler alert: Snoop’s fascination with glitter glue is not to be missed.

15 November 2016 9:45 AM, PST | | See recent news »

Michelle Williams‘ only child with the late Heath Ledger, daughter Matilda Rose, recently turned 11 years old — and she has a lot of love for one particular subject.

“She is just into animals. Real ones and stuffed ones. Saving them and sleeping with them,” Williams told People Monday night at the Los Angeles premiere of her film Manchester by the Sea.

“We have a zoo in our apartment. We just added a cat to our dog and our fish. I feel like that’s a small petting zoo. I could get 50 a visit.”

Freaks and Geeks: Why Busy Philipps Isn't Hot for a Revival

28 October 2016 8:15 PM, PDT | | See recent TVSeriesFinale news »

Freaks and Geeks fans may have to spend the weekend chanting, "Kim Kelly is my friend," to maintain their collective Zen. Busy Philipps is not keen on the idea of a Freaks and Geeks TV show reunion. Linda Cardellini, John Francis Daley, James Franco, Samm Levine, Seth Rogen, Jason Segel, and Martin Starr also starred in the 1980s-set coming of age comedy drama.While doing press for HBO's Vice Principals, which will intentionally end after its second season, Philipps told Pop Sugar she is "wary" of revivals, referring to them as "retreads." She says Paul Feig, Judd Apatow and the rest of the writers did the best they could to provide a satisfying ending that could serve as a series finale. Given »

Busy Philipps Isn't Sold on a Freaks and Geeks Reboot: "People Want to Move On"

28 October 2016 4:00 PM, PDT | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

It's almost impossible to keep track of all the reboots and sequels hitting the big and small screens lately. Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life will be here before you know it, Prison Break is coming back to raise your blood pressure yet again in 2017, but the one show you probably won't be seeing resurrected? Freaks and Geeks. The one-season wonder is a fan favorite, practically a poster child for the canceled-too-soon genre — but isn't that part of why we love it so much? Thanks to the Digital HD release of Vice Principals season one, we got to speak with Busy Philipps about why she actually loves that her current show is only formatted as two seasons. She made some great points about the importance of letting things go, especially when it comes to TV. You won't find her campaigning for a Freaks and Geeks reunion. "I feel wary of that track. »

Why the slow knife of Jody Hill is one of comedy's deadliest tools

12 September 2016 1:10 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Since the first time I saw The Foot Fist Way, I have been a fan of the work of Jody Hill and Danny McBride. They have a number of other regular collaborators who are part of the wonderful work they’ve created together so far, and you can’t talk about them without also talking about Ben Best or Shawn Harwell or John Carcieri or David Gordon Green or Tim Orr or Joseph Stephens, because they’re all part of what I love about Observe and Report and Eastbound & Down and now Vice Principals. I’ll have more to say about this season once it comes to a close next week, but today, I am struck anew by why I have such a strong reaction to the films that Jody Hill has directed, and I think I finally have a handle on it.
