Michelle Williams & Spike Jonze Step Out

Michelle Williams & Spike Jonze Step Out

Director Spike Jonze keeps his arm wrapped around actress girlfriend Michelle Williams after a romantic dinner in Brooklyn on Saturday. The couple was also spotted getting cozy together in L.A. earlier this month.

Michelle, 27, and Spike, 38, met when Michelle auditioned for Where the Wild Things Are, which Spike directed. Jonze recently produced the actress’ upcoming film Synecdoche, New York.

Jonze, who was last romantically linked to Drew Barrymore, was previously married to fellow filmmaker Sofia Coppola — they called it quits in 2003.

  • [☆I n F a m o u s☆]

    …..` disgusting bish.

    she’s covering her face cause she feels ashamed..

    … never liked her.

  • t

    Not sure what you think she has to be ashamed of? Good for her. There’s nothing wrong with her moving on with her life.

  • fresh

    good for them

  • Na

    I’m glad she’s moving on, but I miss Heath. They were so cute together. <3

  • LD

    Good to see her out and about with someone new. She was broken up with Heath at the time of his death and he probably put her through hell beforehand.

  • camila

    you’re right LD no one can repleace Heath :(
    But at least she has to try to move on it’s not good to live in the past..

  • peta

    moving on too quickly, eewww

  • hay ho

    she’s covering her face because she hates getting her picture taken. she has nothing to be ashamed of you judgmental twat, get back into your cage. she hasn’t had a serious relationship in one year she deserves to be happy.

  • tia

    ugh. i NEVER liked her. even when she was on dawsons creek.

    heath ledger was way too good for her.

  • Riley

    she is ashamed lol otherwise she wouldnt be covering her face….she NEVER does so why start now?

  • LOLA

    How is she moving on too quickly?? she broke off things with heath ledger like October/november 2007…its been a lot of months now, honey. She’s not going to stay single forever you know, its her life and she needs to start seeing ppl!

  • Halli

    Apparently the guy is a bad husband. Just watch Lost in Translation. I think that was a big F-CK YOU to Spike Jones from Sofia Coppola.

  • b

    good for her!!!

  • http://kwanzoo.com/social-trivia Liz

    Ah, so they ARE dating. Much happiness to them both.

  • hay ho

    heath ledger was a junkie he wasn’t too good for anybody.

  • me

    I think she is covering up her face because she dislikes the paps. There is nothing for her to be ashamed of.

    I hope she is happy with him.

  • sol

    Great for her!!!It’s not like she’s getting married she’s just starting to go out and find some happiness.I adore her and was sorry when she got separated from heath but come on, before he sadly passed away he went out with lots of women and at that time she was never seen with a guy!!She can’t mourn forever because it’s not healthy for her or her daughter.Mathilda needs a happy mom!

  • sol

    and she covers her face beacuse she always hated paparazzis ,just search for older pics and you will notice the habit.

  • valerie

    she always covers her face in paparazzi pictures, not just here.

    she and heath were broken up way before his death. they announced they were broken up late 2007 but she has said that they were broken up long before they announced it.

    before heath died he was linked to like 15 girls and michelle was alone. she hasn’t done anything wrong ,its not her fault her daughter doesn’t have a father. she’s moving on with her life. we didn’t know heath so you can’t really say that she didn’t deserve him. i’m sure he would have wanted her to be happy.

    so stop judging her.

  • tina

    always been mean so nothing new from her

  • just saying

    Michelle has moved on with with her life. Unlike Chinnifer Maniston (who you all love so much) Michelle isn’t moping around about her ex.

  • Kealyn

    It feels a bit strange to see her without Heath.
    But I’m not judging her. If see is ready to move one, then I respect that. But I hope she keeps Heath alive for her little girl. Matilda needs some love from her regarding her father.
    But I think she does that :).

    I’m happy for her.

    She’s so cute and an excellent actress, too. It’s good to see that the majority agree that it’s good that she’s moved on. She did split with Heath Ledger nearly a year ago (late August). It’s not as if they were a couple when he died.

    Who are you to judge?

  • Regina

    “Apparently the guy is a bad husband. Just watch Lost in Translation. I think that was a big F-CK YOU to Spike Jones from Sofia Coppola.”
    —————
    What the hell is that supposed to mean? They split in 2003, the same time the film was released, it had nothing to do with Lost in Translation. I also never saw any undertones suggesting Jonze was a bad husband?

  • renee

    1) Michelle Williams split from heath ledger months before he died because of his partying and drug habits, which would undoubtly affect their child.

    2) Michelle Williams HATES the papparrazi

    3) If she didn’t cover her face, this photo will be on all the tabloid magazine covers come next week, so it was a good idea to cover her face.

    4) Ashamed of what exactly? That she is moving on and starting a steady relationship??

  • casey

    good for her <3

  • tutu

    heath ledger was way too good for her.

    Exactly.

    Their on-set hook up wouldn’t have lasted more than a few months hadn’t she tried to trap him by getting pregnant but alas, it didn’t work.

    She has every right to date and anyway they broke up almost a year before his death. But she’s a bitch who thinks so much of herself. Honey if you weren’t Heath Ledger’s baby momma nobody would care about your ass.

  • billie

    ahh… yes, “lost in translation” is a big slap in the face to spike. they were together when she was making the film, and even if they were not, the character is still based on him. and the dumb blonde character was based on cameron diaz, who comes across as a crass, stupid actress.

    i think it’s great that michelle is moving on, i just don’t know if i trust spike. he seems like an opportunist. he dated sofia, married her, i don’t think her last name hurt and now off of all of the publicity of heath. i don’t know, maybe there’s nothing there, but i think he is attracted to a type of fame that certain women bring.

  • Anon

    I’m not a fan of her. There was something about her I didn’t care for when she was WITH Heath, and I never thought they would last. I mean OK. She did Dawson’s Creek. But she wasn’t in the same league with Heath. Who really heard of her so much before she went with him? Once she lines up picture jobs with Hugh Jackman and then Martin Scorcese and Leo, they break-up. Right this minute I am thrilled to pieces that Matilda is here, but when she came up pregnant in this day and age, I got very suspicious of her. Then she keeps Matilda in Sweden for Christmas and he goes to Australia, from here in London. Why didn’t she let him be with his baby for Christmas? It’s not so far at all from London to Sweden. He could have stayed in a different hotel just to spend time with Matilda.
    We talk about Heath being bad, and I’m sure he was a handful, but I don’t think she is a prize either. Not at all. I find all the “Poor Michelle” stuff rubbish. I hope sweet Matilda isn’t subject to lots of different “uncles” as she is growing up. That child needs a happy, kind person who is there for her. Michelle better be thinking of this baby she got and not only herself. Spike sounds like he has made the rounds.

    I completely agree.

  • lene

    Moving on too fast?
    Is that a joke?
    They broke up months before his death.
    She deserves to move on with her life! she doesn’t deserve getting bashed over it!
    Good for Michelle. So happy for her. : )

  • naty

    First of all when heith ledger died they were far from over, so why she is a bitch? He is dead and she is alive, and they were done months before.

  • lene

    She got great movie offers because of Heath?
    O H P L E A S E !
    She got Brokeback mountain before she even got together with Heath!
    And the offers after was because of her oscar nomination!!!!!!!
    SHE GOT TO WHERE SHE IS, ON HER OWN!

    Actually, I would care about Michelle if it weren’t for Ledger’s death. She’s a talented actress. Who are you to say that she cares about only herself? She has a daughter and seems to devote a lot of time to her.

  • lala

    Very well put, Anon.

  • WTF?

    Only losers hate. She’s just a woman like any other woman who is a single mother. She’s an academy award nominated actress and has someone new in her life. End of story. Some of you people are ridiculous.

    Are you insinuating that Michelle only got movie offers because of Heath’s death? Bitch, please! Not only was she cast AFTER she broke up with Heath Ledger, she has been around longer than Heath Ledger and has made better films than Heath Ledger.

    I loved Heath Ledger, but it was only recently that he got great film roles post-Brokeback Mountain. Before that he had A Knight’s Tale, The Sin Eater, The Four Feathers and Ned Kelly. They weren’t very good. Granted he was in 10 Things… and Monster’s Ball, but in no way did Michelle suddenly just get noticed because she was with Heath. Ever heard of the little show Dawson’s Creek, too?

  • lala land

    “Not only was she cast AFTER she broke up with Heath Ledger, she has been around longer than Heath Ledger and has made better films than Heath Ledger.”

    Next you’re gonna say she’s a better actor that Heath Ledger. Yeah right, pffft!

    “Ever heard of the little show Dawson’s Creek, too?”

    Yeah cause a shi**y little show like that would get you to work with the likes of Scorsese, Philip Seymour Hoffman, DiCaprio, etc. Dude get with the program!

  • Bla, Bla, Bla

    gosh i did like her at the time she was on dawson creek…… and i never really heard of her until she was with heath…and i gotta admit it, personally i could never, ever move on after a man like heath O.O good for her, i think she shouldn’t live in the past, thats not good at all. Moving on is the only way out so….good for her. but heath was definitely the best……maybe imitated but NEVER DUPLICATED

  • isabella

    half the people posting on this thread are so pathetic.

    stop judging someone you don’t know — you don’t know her, you didn’t know heath, you didn’t know anything about their relationship, you don’t know what she went through after his death, and you don’t know anything about her and anyone new she might be connected with.

    stop deciding for michelle what she should be doing, if she was too good for heath, if she got movie roles because of him — instead, why don’t you focus on your OWN pathetic fucking lives, okay?

    even if michelle wasn’t in the “same league” as far as movie roles and acting went, that DOES NOT MEAN ON ANY GROUNDS that he couldn’t date her. he can date WHOEVER he wants — a doctor, a salesclerk, a singer — she doesn’t have to be some top-notch actress, and personally i liked seeing him with someone not just because of status and name.

    but when you talk about something you know NOTHING about, it just makes you look stupid, so i’d suggest just keeping your mouths shut if you don’t have anything worthwhile to say.

    ———————————————————————————————-
    People who actually care to go to movies others than the blockbusters.I took notice of her in the indie flick Dick (and was not alone) way before she met Ledger.A small guy in the business called Wim Wenders obviously heard of her too since he gave her a difficult and touching role in Land of Plenty.

  • serenity now

    isabella – STFD and stop telling people what to say or do, yeah?

  • !

    they split way before heath passed away
    it’s def. great to see her move on with her life

  • Mimi

    Why were the pictures removed?

  • lea

    now that she is dating spike, her image will be bad. she is a weird woman. who really doesn’t care heath and will be a bad mom

  • remember da truth

    All you Heath lovers need to get a grip. She was the love of his life, no one else ever mattered to him as much as she did. And you don’t “trap” a guy with pregnancy anymore, either — Heath was ECSTATIC to be a daddy. All of you are so enamored of a drug addict that you aren’t thinking realistically.

    Heath’s parents knew that Heath had done her wrong and were still very friendly with Michelle after the breakup. Obviously, she still loved him but his drug use was out of control and his mood swings were no good for Matilda.

    Good for her to be out and about. Her talent has shown and her lack of desire for the tabloid fame of some, her refusal to speak about Heath and exploit his misfortunes, her private life being kept private — this all speaks well of her. I’ve not been a fan, but she carries herself with class.

    Also, she covers her face because the flashbulbs are difficult to see through. Obviously, you people have never been near all those photogs and don’t know what it’s like. It’s a natural reaction to shield the eyes.
