Michelle Williams is All Smiles at Cannes

Michelle Williams joins costars Catherine Kenner, Philipp Seymour Hoffman, and Samantha Morton at a photocall for their film new film, Synecdoche, New York at the 2008 Cannes Film Festival on Friday in Cannes, southern France.

Synecdoche, New York is about a theatre director named Caden (Hoffman). After the inception of his new play, he discovers that his various autonomic functions are shutting down one at a time. The movie goes into themes such as the nature of family, of home, and of male-female relationships, all while blurring the nature of reality and representation in a nature consistent with the earlier work of Charlie Kaufman. Keener plays first wife Adele, Williams as his second wife Claire and Morton as his mistress Hazel. Variety has the first review.

    This is the first time I can clearly see Matilda in her mom. It’s also nice to see Michelle smile after such a horrific and sad experience.

    Thanks JJ

    I’m so glad to see her smiling and enjoying life. She’s a strong woman, a great mother, and a genuine soul. Thanks for posting all of these great photos of her. She’s one of my favorite people!

    (And, the fact that she and Matilda have the same haircut is adorable!)

  • Sherylsp

    I don’t mean to sound rude or insensitive here, but DAYUM, homegirl looks beyond worn out! How old is she again? Poor thing’s obviously had a lot of stress on her lately…but then again, I know it’s not easy to raise an infant on your own. I wish her well—compared to her other creepy “Dawon’s Creek” co-stars, she appears to be carving out a strong career niche for herself, with or without a famous celeb spouse/SO.

    She seems so strong, I am very happy for her and I know she is a great mother for Matilda.

  • Indiana

    Lovely girls.

    Nice that an actress is an actress and leaves her personal life at home.

    Michelle goes out of her way to be private… unlike some fame seeking people also at Cannes this week.

    IT IS SAD THAT MICHELLE WILLIAMS FINALLY COMES OUT TO PROMOTE A MOVIE AND SHE IS OVERSHADOWED BY HEATH’S DEATH… WE MEDIA WILL DO THE SAME THING WHEN THE BATMAN
    MOVIE COMES OUT… IT WILL BE A HEATH LEDGER MOVIE…

    WHY CAN’T PEOPLE LEAVE MICHELLE A LONE… SHE IS DOING A GREAT JOB WITH MATILDA .. AND SHE DOES NOT NEED TO BE REMINDED OF HEATH NOW… WHILE BEING AT THE CANNE FILM FESTIVAL FOR THE FIRST TIME..

  • Helena

    I can’t wait to see this film.

  • Tealeaf

    She looks cute, more talented then ScarJO

  • Vivi

    Love her chloe blouse and cute skirt! so adorable

  • AI

    Honestly, you can see the toll Heath’s death took on her. She looks like she’s aged 10 years in the last few months.

  • Ely

    This girl looks so old before her time; like an old widow. No need for all that

  • Roch

    I love Michelle ♥

  • tam

    She looks pretty!

  • Carrie

    Michelle has a beautiful face! Hopefully, she’ll meet a wonderful man who will be a father to her daughter.

  • Yes

    She was always more talented than Kathy Holmes ! She is one of the most underrated actress of her generation.

  • Helena

    She’s definitely more stylish and talented than dullface Katie Holmes.

    It’s good to see this brave woman handling the separation from Ledger, then his untimely death. The daughter is a spitting image of her dad, so it must be really difficult for Williams to be reminded of Ledger. She is slowly adjusting and in silence mourn the death of Heath Ledger. She faces the future with such optimism. She does not want to be portrayed as a victim. She is a survivor. No pity party for this talented actress.

    That I call bravery !

    She is also a confident woman – as far as skills goes – she is able to tackle controversial characters, and leaves those hohum roles to others. What confidence that she walks with pride as a single actress at red carpet events. She does not need a man to feel her worth as a woman.

    That I call – confidence !

  • levett

    she looks gorgeous. my fovorite actress.

  • kia

    she looks so pure, innocent, amiable, sweet, like an angel

  • deliah

    She looks beautiful and just has an amazing smile. It’s nice to see her smiling again.

  • siobhan

    that guy is the same guy she was taking a stroll with as seen in a paparazzi pic posted in michellewilliams.hollywood.com
    labeled Michelle and Matilda in New York-May 27, 2007. He’s even carrying the same bag.

    Os fãs brasileiros de Heath Ledger estão insatisfeitos com esta atriz.. A Michelle não apoiou o Heath , nem o ajudou na sua dependencia química. A Michelle foi egoísta. Afastou a filha do pai, o Heath entrou em depressão profunda após a separação. Michelle é desumana, não deu a mão ao esposo,ela o abandonou. A Michelle deveria ter seguido o exemplo de Nicole Kidmam, que cuidou da dependencia química do esposo. Hoje Nicole está grávida e feliz com o marido recuperado.A diferença entre Nicole e Michelle é: A Nicole ama o marido,porém, a Michelle nunca amou o Heath.
