Michelle Williams: Matilda & Me Time!

Michelle Williams: Matilda & Me Time!

Michelle Williams keeps a watchful eye on photographers as she takes a stroll around New York City on Sunday afternoon with daughter Matilda Rose, 2.

The 27-year-old actress recently gave an interview in the April 2008 issue of Elle. Here’s what she had to say:

On Matilda being her greatest treasure: When I have too much free time, that’s when things start to get a little messy. [Tears pool in eyes, then she smiles.] Matilda’s the prize. She’s bigger to me than any relationship, bigger than the awards. She’s what came out of it.”

On Matilda being a Brooklyn baby: “She’s such a New York kid. That’s what she’s thinking about: going home. Every morning we go to the coffee shop. She’s ready to go back and get her bagel, and I’m ready to get a really good cup of coffee.”

On the shock of hearing that Katie Holmes was dating Tom Cruise back in 2005: “I was shocked. [My actress pal Busy Philipps] called and said, “You’re never going to believe who Katie’s with now.” And I’m like, “Who?” And she said, “Who’s the biggest movie star you can think of?” I said — this is embarrassing — ‘Tom Selleck?!’”

  • amy

    Heath will live on in his beautiful daughter, Matilda, who looks exactly like him. It must be a comfort to all those who loved him.

  • suzy

    paps should leave her alone.

  • Nina

    Even though I love any story about Michelle or looking at her pictures, she’s such a unique person in this industry, the paps really need to leave her alone, she needs to be left alone-she doesn’t ask for this attention. Geez.

  • laurie

  • faye

    I love Selleck! Big NRA guy and BIG Republican in this liberal Hollywood. Dont like Michelle though because of her nasty atttitude and treating her fans like garbage.

  • anna

    Matilda is so cute.

  • lene

    hahahhahahaha, Tom Selleck. LMAO!

    I bet Busy laughed her ass of when she heard that one:p

  • Ivana

    AAAAAh, litlle Mathilda looks like her daddy, so sad and heartbreaking!!!

  • LD

    I’ll really miss the Heath and Matilda pictures. I wasn’t a huge fan of Heath’s films (all I’ve seen is BBM and TTIHAY), but for some reason Matilda/Heath sightings were my favorites.

    Maybe it’s from the angle of the pictures, but I see a little less of Heath and more of Michelle in Matilda now. Before it was all Heath. I was always very iffy on Michelle but in every interview she comes off as very normal and down to earth. She doesn’t give the canned answers like most actors/actresses do.

  • lm6o

    pity all you want but there’s nothing admirable about her.

    Being a widow and private person does not equate great human being.

  • OMG


  • marine

    michelle and mathilda is very beautiful

  • Micky

    She looks like her daddy.Really beautiful.

  • Lainey

    something off about her personna.

  • jkl

    Funny comment about TC. Apparently, Katie is the only one in the world who thought Tom Cruise was “the biggest movie star ever” (her very own words) in 2005.

  • Alison

    Matilda is so precious – she looks so much like Heath.
    I think Michelle’s answer of Tom Selleck is hilarious. See it even threw Michelle who Katie was dating…..

  • choux

    Matilda is soo beautiful, she looks so much like Heath! Michelle breaks my heart, Matilda probably doesn’t know what has become of her dad!


    They’re like Gilmore girls…

  • lulu

  • Pat

    Michelle is a great mom. Matilda is lucky to have her, since she won’t have her daddy around.

    I wondered about the ring on Michelle’s left hand. Could it be one she got from Heath?

  • amy

    heath and michelle were one of my favorite couples, so down to earth.. gotta love em’
    I love watching matilda shes so cute :D but i feel so guilty.. its pretty obvious michelle doesnt want the photagraphers up her nose and i understand that.. i think we should leave them alone cuz its hard enough as it is right now and i dont think matilda should grow up with this kind of attention
