Michelle Williams doesn't claim she's figured out a perfect work-life balance. In fact, the 34-year-old actress tells Elle U.K.'s April issue that working and simultaneously raising 8-year-old daughter Matilda leaves her "feeling pretty exhausted." "I feel like I'm so good at raising a kid when I'm not working," says the Cabaret star. "I don't forget anything. I've got everything covered. It's a real luxury to have a moment when I'm not scrambling. I feel like most of my life, I'm trying to do two things at once, both to the best of my abilities." Sadly, Matilda's father Heath Ledger passed away in 2008, leaving Williams alone to bear the »

When it comes to choosing godparents, people often pick those closest to them to inspire and provide guidance to their child. So it's no surprise that most celebrity kids end up with very big stars influencing their upbringing. Steven Spielberg is godfather to a pair of huge stars, Drew Barrymore and Gwyneth Paltrow, and Nicole Richie's got two superstar goddads of her own. Michelle Williams's little girl, Matilda Ledger, calls Jake Gyllenhaal and Busy Philipps her honorary parents, while Courteney Cox looked to Bff Jennifer Aniston to take the role of godmother to her daughter, Coco Arquette. See more sets of surprising celebrity godparents, including Elton John, Hugh Grant, and Lady Gaga, when you scroll through now. »

I want to like Kelly Reichardt more than I do. She has a firm grasp over the tone and look of her films, but they just never grab me like I think they should. I still need to see her latest film, Night Moves, and maybe that one will change my mind. Regardless if I like her films or not, I am still interested in what she makes, which brings me to the subject of this article. Kristen Stewart has signed up to join Reichardt's next film alongside Michelle Williams and Laura Dern. This may not excite some people, as there is a fairly strong anti-Kristen Stewart group out there, but I am on the side of really liking her. People just need to leave Twilight behind forever in their memories and look to her other stuff. Her performances in things like Adventureland, On the Road, and Still Alice »

Night Moves director Kelly Reichardt does not yet have a title for her new drama. But she has still been building an impressive cast of previous collaborators and new faces, with Michelle Williams, Jared Harris, Laura Dern, James Le Gros and Sara Rodier all aboard.

Did you know that Kristen Stewart made history a week ago? The 24-year-old actress became the first American woman to win a prestigious Cesar Award, France's own version of the Academy Award. She also won it for an English-speaking role. Think about that for a second. This honor hasn't been bestowed upon Meryl Streep, Michelle Williams, Sigourney Weaver, Natalie Portman, Glenn Close, Susan Sarandon or any other globally acclaimed American actress over the past 30 years. No, it was Kristen Stewart who broke the French's reticence to reward anyone but their own. Stewart, an actress who continues to (mostly) put studio work behind her following a string of acclaimed performance in indie films over the past year. That career path continues with her next endeavor, the "Untitled Kelly Reichardt Project," In case the name is unfamiliar to you, Reichardt is an acclaimed director whose movies include festival favorites "Night Moves," "Meek's Cutoff" and "Wendy and Lucy. »

Looks like most of those rumors turned out to be true. The director of modern minimalist classics like “Wendy & Lucy,” “Old Joy,” “Meek’s Cutoff,” and “Night Moves” — that latter film we just placed on our 50 Best Films Of The Decade So Far list — a new Kelly Reichardt film is always cause for celebration. And so we greatly anticipate her upcoming project, an untitled, vignette-driven drama set in small town Montana. And the already-terrific cast just got even better. Kristen Stewart, coming off two great performances in “Clouds of Sils Maria” and “Camp X-Ray,” has joined the film. According to Deadline, she will portray a lawyer from Boise, Idaho who takes a teaching job several hours from her house. Stewart’s character develops a friendship with a local woman who’s auditing her class. Michelle Williams “stars” (or just might be the biggest name in the cast), and the cast also includes Laura Dern, »

After the Twilight saga ended, Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson seemed headed on similar, yet different paths. While Pattinson went on to somewhat successfully follow an indie path, hitching star on David Cronenberg's wagon numerous times since the series' final entry; Stewart seemed to have diminished returns on her indie quest. With the first Cesar handed to an American actress on her mantle, Stewart's luck looks to have changed for the better... and her next project could continue the streak, as she's joined Kelly Reichardt's latest project. Deadline announced that Kristen Stewart has joined the Night Moves director's latest drama, which is untitled at the moment, but has some award nominees in its canon. Stewart will be co-starring with Michelle Williams and Laura Dern in this project about, "a series of vignettes that revolve around the lives of people in small-town Montana." Her segment would be about a »

Sometimes ideas that are good on paper just don't work out in execution. Case in point: "Suite Française." A World War II drama/romance starring Michelle Williams and Matthias Schoenaerts sounds awesome, but the movie from director Saul Dibb ("The Duchess") quietly premiered for industry types at the American Film Market and is now being released internationally while it still awaits a stateside date from The Weinstein Company. Call it what you like, but it looks like the studio is feeling less hopeful about the film's prospects. A new dubbed, French trailer (via Michelle Williams Online) has arrived for the film, offering a glimpse at some new scenes along with UK TV spot. Co-starring Kristin Scott Thomas, Sam Riley, Ruth Wilson, Margot Robbie ("The Wolf of Wall Street"), Alexandra Maria Lara, Tom Schilling, Eileen Atkins, Lambert Wilson, and featuring a score by Alexandre »

The Weinstein Company's World War II film The Imitation Game managed to pick up an Oscar for adapted screenplay at last night's ceremony. This year, they have Woman in Gold coming out in May, which has WW2 elements, and Suite Fran?aise coming out at some point later this year. My guess is they are going to vying for a late release, hoping to be apart of next year's award season. For those in the UK, the film opens on March 13th. I am not terribly excited to see yet another World War II-set film, but when a cast includes Michelle Williams, Kristin Scott Thomas, Matthias Schoenaerts, Margot Robbie, and Ruth Wilson, it is hard not to get my expectations high. The film is directed by Saul Dibb, whose last film was The Duchess. I know a lot of people thought it was just a rote costume drama, but I enjoyed it quite a lot, »

When it was announced that Jon Stewart would be leaving The Daily Show, the Internet responded in turn by nominating some viable candidates (you can read our list here). At the top of most packs was Jessica Williams, the 25-year-old black comic who has been the show’s most surprising correspondent addition in years and has proved herself to be acerbic and hilarious when talking about issues related to feminism, Beyonce, or black hair.
In fact, Hot Tub Time Machine 2 even includes a scene set in 2025 where Williams has nestled comfortably into the hosting chair. If the Cubs can win the World Series in Back to the Future 2, that prediction is good enough for me!
Williams however, despite being very humbled, tweeted that she was “under qualified” for the position, presumably with the idea that she’s only 25 and has a whole career ahead of her to do whatever she wants. »

Filmmaker Kelly Reichardt announced a new movie this week and while details are under wraps (or were), the untitled drama reunites her with her “Wendy & Lucy” star Michelle Williams. But there’s more. Laura Dern, Jared Harris (“Sherlock Holmes 2,” and “Mad Men”) and James Le Gros have joined the cast. Some details have reportedly surfaced too. What’s it about? The movie is reportedly going under the title of the “Helena and Montana Story.” Helena is Montana’s capital city, and it’s apparently a Robert Altman-like take of lives of small town folk that has a structure apparently akin to “Nashville” and “Short Cuts.” That’s the rumor anyhow. Film Divider also said Kristen Stewart was being eyed for a role, but THR's report suggests that didn't pan out. Or at least, maybe that deal hasn't gone through yet. We'll have to wait and see... Speaking of Laura Dern, »
