Michelle Williams opens up about Heath Ledger

By Sean O’Connell As an actress, Michelle Williams has no problems peeling back the layers to bare the souls of the characters she plays. Watch the conflicted spouses she embodies in both “Brokeback Mountain” and “Blue Valentine,” and marvel at the raw intensity she brings to the surface of each role.

But when it comes to her own private life, Williams is understandably reserved. So it’s worth noting that the actress chose to open up recently about her late mate Heath Ledger, and how his sudden death affected her personal and professional existence.

“I’ve found meanings around the circumstance, but the actual event itself still doesn’t … I can’t find a meaning for it,” Williams revealed to Nightline. “I can find meanings in things and people and relationships that have sprung up and friendships that have strengthened. I can find a lot of meaning in that, but not in why.”

Williams goes on to say that the year after Ledger’s death remains a complete blank for her, though she remembers relying on Joan Didion’s 2005 book, “The Year of Magical Thinking,” to get her through the toughest moments.

“It was a year of very magical thinking, and in some ways I’m sad to be moving further and further away from it,” Williams said. “ I know I got kind of obsessed with that for a while, the before and after. A lot of things died. … There’s a line from a book that gave me so much comfort and it said, ‘When you’ve truly lost everything, then at least you can become rich in loss.'”

Williams can be seen in “Blue Valentine,” in theaters now.
