Matilda Ledger is a Flower Girl

Matilda Ledger is a Flower Girl

Michelle Williams and soap star Kane Manera hold hands with her daughter Matilda, 3, on Wednesday (March 18) in Brooklyn, New York City.

Matilda was seen carrying back a pot full of flowers. How cute!

Michelle recently told UK’s Observer about a possible move across the pond. She shared, “I don’t want to make my life any more complicated. I don’t want any more paparazzi outside my door. I want it to get better as my daughter grows up, not worse. If it makes a difference, if doing smaller movies means less of that stuff, then I’ll adjust my life so that we can still have a life in the city and not totally disappear. If not, I think they have laws in France – I’ll go there.”

FYI: Kane has been playing Grady Foley in CBS soap Guiding Light since June 2, 2008.

    Pretty sure the “mystery guy” is Kane Manera. He’s been on Guiding Light and spoke at Heath’s memorial service. He’s an Aussie.

    I think Michelle is one of the best celebrity moms. Her kid is always dressed weather appropriate, never has a pacifier or a bottle and walks on her own most of the time. Very refreshing.

    Little Matilda looks healthy and full of joy.
    Her mother is a good mother to protect her child like this, AND to appreciate her daughter’s efforts to put on her jumper by herself.
    Funny how the man and Matilda have both the kids’ bandage on a finger. It shows how involved friends can be what happends to this little girl. Indeed a very good example for Katie Holmes, how she should give Suri more space to grow and develop herself in a kids’ way!

    karinefrench @ 03/19/2009 at 7:59 am Sure there are laws in France but the paparazzi don’t even abide by the law.
    True but they are definitely much more respectfull about the kids pictures than anywhere else. Especially when you don’t live in Paris. They don’t go after kids mlike they do in the US and the UK and if a pic is taken they blurr the kid’s face in magas.

    I’m beginning to really like Michelle. She seems down to earth not a media-***** and a good mother to try to shield her daughter from the spotlight. Matilda looks so happy.

    kvb Says:

    Never forget that Princess Diana died in France with the paparazzi in hot pursuit so mom’s rambling is senseless. I don’t like the paparazzi but then I’m here looking at photos with taglines so go figure, eh? The actors/actresses who are not over-the-top pursued are the ones who set a foundation with the paps (with an occasional friendly smile, etc.) What’s she going to do raise her daughter like Cristina Onassis’ daughter was raised? I think Michelle is a good actress and has a beautiful face but there has always been something very sad and complexed about her and it has nothing to do with Ledger’s death. So far, it would appear she is a decent mother to their daughter who appears to live in her own world and is adorably learning to care for herself, i.e. the freedom to dress herself, etc.

    Decent mother of course she is.. she was before Heath died.. He was
    not allowed to see her before he died.. That is why he was showing everyone her pix.. and saying how much he missed her.. WILL MICHELLE EVER GET PUBLICITY ON HER OWN.. AND NOT ABOUT


  46. 46
    Mousse Says:

    @Raphael, oh I do dear defender of the Cruises. You obviously cannot read children’s body language and I even think you have no children. Otherwise you would see what everyone sees when you look at Suri and then look at little Matilda here and other celebrity kids who are playing and being who they are meant to be: just kids.
    Wait and see untill we’re 10 years further….

    Brooklyn neighbour Says:

    I personally can’t stand Michelle Williams. She has been rude to friends of mine. Heath couldn’t stand her, nor her him in the end, so it must be one of life’s ittle ‘punishments’ that Matilda looks just like Heath. Heath was a lovely guy, very popular in the neighbourhood, unlike Michelle. I’ve seen her around with Spike Jonze and she seems totally into him, much so than she ever was into Heath, though I guess by the time they had moved to Brooklyn there wasn’t much love there between them anyway, especially from Heath’s part. Lately there is a rumor in the neighbourghood that she’s going to marry Spike Jonze as she wants to do things properly this time and give Matailda a little sister. Another rumor suggested that a couple of months ago her nanny told her where to stick it in a huge row and I don’t blame her if that is true. I feel sorry for Matilda. Heath would have been a much better influence on her than Michelle Williams would ever be. Trust me, she seems to have serious issues.

  48. 48
    sw Says:

    Yes,sure. Matilda must be so much happier than Suri!
    A farherless child can have the better of lives as long they are aloud to button their own coats

    At least the Cruises are actually MARRIED and together taking care of their kid as a real family

    MW seems to be a good mother, there is no need to trash Katy Holmes to afirm that.

    nyny Says:

    i use to think michelle williams would be one of those actresses on those teen shows that would have theirtime in the limelight and be completely forgotten. whenever you see katie holmes, you still think dawson’s creek. unfortunately she hasn’t done much to break out of that mold besides being tom cruise’s wife.

    michele williams is a really promising actress. she hasn’t been with every guy on the planet, she’s not in it for the publicity or money it seems, because she always chooses smaller indie films, she lives in ny, far away from the attentionseeking washed up ‘actors’ in hollywood.

    annnddd….she and her kid are occasionally seen. pretty rarely. matilda is always dressed appropriately, like a little kid. she isn’t a flaunter of her riches like suri cruise, who is always dressed in luxury labels.

    i think heath ledger would be proud.

    Lurker Says:

    To Brooklyn Neighbour,
    What was your point exactly? So she’s been rude to your friends at one time.. big deal. Who has not been rude at some point or another. Does that disqualify her as being a good mother? Who are you to judge whether Keith would have made a better parent than Michelle? From what we can see.. which is not much… she is doing a darn good job with her little girl.

  52. 52
    Annie Says:

    Funny how we never hear about Suri and Matilda
    playdates, since their mothers have played with eachother in the same tv show for years.
    Youd think those kids would be the best of friends..
    Specially since they both are living in New York..

    cassie Says:

    Love this family. Michelle seems to be a very smart and caring mom. Always putting her daughter first and giving Matilda the chance to grow up being a normal kid. Love little Matilda’s fashion sence too. Did you all notice her sweater. And the photo of her crossing her feet. So cute.

    sally Says:

    #52 – that’s because they’re not friends. And just a guess, but I don’t think michelle would want suri and matilda playing together anyway – it would be a field day for papparazzi. I mean she has enough trouble walking to the store to buy a potplant or coffee!

  59. 59
    laura Says:

    #47, coincidentally, i used to live two blocks away from her in boerum hill. she came into the coffee shop i worked at a few times. she always seemed very nice, very polite.

    as for the neighborhood comment.. her neighborhood isnt so tightknit that everyone knows everything about each other. i know for a fact that the neighbors that she is associated with are nice people. and i also know, a lot of boerum hill people unassociated with her would be happy to run their mouths to the media to gain a dime, your “friends” being one of them.

    Briony Says:

    BrooklynNeighbour – I’ve also heard Michelle isn’t very nice at all, that she can be very pretentious and that the people who actually truly brought Matilda up were actually Heath and the nanny (his tall blonde woman who hasn’t been seen lately.) because Michelle just couldn’t cope with the ‘stress’ of looking after a baby and because she was more interested in working in crappy films then looking after the child she was only too happy to have when she was trying to trap Heath. When you think about it, where would her carreer be if it wasn’t because of her getting pregnant with Heath? Nowhere. Now she’s latching on to Spike Jonze and relying on him to get her jobs in the film industry. The only people I feel sorry for here are Heath’s family who have to do the act of their lives in order for them to have contact with Matilda. This Kane guy probably has to do ‘the act’ too, just to keep an eye on Matilda for Heath.

    “briony”, you are clearly the same person and i pity your ignorance. what you hear isnt necessarily what is true. go spawn your lies elsewhere; you can’t possibly think that people will actually believe/change their minds about michelle from half-ass attempts at rumors?

    in any case, im glad michelle is her mother and not you.

    Heath NEVER loved Michelle Says:

    Thank you for your comment. I completely agree with you.
    He had to fake it because he became STUCK WITH MICHELLE.
    Michelle deliberately got herself pregnant before the movie
    Brokeback Mountain was released to the theatres.
    Heath felt PITY for her NOT LOVE after she tumbled off of a sled
    for a scene in Brokeback Mountain. He was being the good samaritan. Michelle took advantage of that.
    I am so disgusted with anyone believing she was his “true love” she was not.

    Heath wanted Naomi Says:

    I would like to add that Naomi watts had dumped Heath just before he
    started filming Brokeback Mountain. He was upset about it and
    not only that he was stuck on the deserted set of Brokeback Mountain
    with no choices to meet anybody. He was not looking to become a
    dad with this calculated teenager wanting a boyfriend.
    Who did Michelle go out with before Heath Ledger?
    I cannot find ANYBODY. He was the first attractive guy she met.
    She is average. Tons of lipstick is the only reason anyone notices her
    at all. Heath had male supermodel looks. She could not compete
    with him and instead took advantage of him being a good samaritan.
