Michelle Williams: My Subconscious Was Interested in Serious Roles

Michelle Williams: My Subconscious Was Interested in Serious Roles

Michelle Williams steps out on a beautiful day in New York City on Tuesday (May 31).

The 30-year-old Meek’s Cutoff actress recently chatted with the Arizona Republic about her string of serious roles.

“It wasn’t anything premeditated at all,” Michelle said of choosing the roles. “I guess it was just what my subconscious was interested in exploring for the last couple of years.

“I’ve heard enough now in the past few months from people I respect, from friends and strangers on the street, saying like, could you do something not as harrowing? And actually, I think there’s something to that – I’m interested myself in what else would excite me,” Michelle added.

    I like how short she keeps her hair but I wish the color was a bit softer, the platinum blonde color makes her look older.

    I don’t think she lives in Brooklyn anymore, I think she and Matilda moved upstate to the farm and Matilda is still in school. She’ll be finished at the end of June. Just in time to go with mom (hopefully) to Michigan while Michelle shoots the OZ movie

    I hope we’ll get a photo of her with her mom.

    Such an arrogant as*. I remember when she used to give photographers (who are just trying to make a living) the middle finger. Not a nice girl.

    @Brainy box: Look everybody at that vile Brainy box/ simy alanes, how unintelligent, despicable & pathetic her Katie Holmes adulation is.

    Photographers who make a living?!?! If they really wanted to make a living then they could just get another profession and not stalk celebrities! Would you like it if a random photographer was invading your privacy and taking pictures of you while you’re with your daughter? I think not.

    I think the one that’s arrogant here is you, and you clearly need some common sense.

    Like seeing Michelle but would love to see Matilda. It’s been far too long, 9 months or something. To see that part of Heath living on would be nice.

    Yes, that’s correct. Photographers also have a right to feed their children. Celebrities choose to do what they do.

    I want to see Matilda too. I bet she has grown a lot, almost 6 years old now.

    @Chris: what’s that, how to trap men by ditching the pill?
    Poor Matilda will find out the reason why she came into the world. I feel bad for her.

    Lexi Says:


    Again, they should choose another career if they want to feed their kids. And you might be mistaken, I’m not talking about actual photographers, but I”m talking about those paparazzi.

    What do you think will happen when the child is old enough to ask their parents what they do? I think “Oh, I take pictures of celebrities, even if they don’t like it, and that’s how I’ve been able to support you all this time”, being the answer will not set well for the kid.

    Most paparazzi don’t even get made that much, so if they wanted to support their kids I think their are millions of other jobs out there.

    Kids should be off limits and if Williams has to handle the stalking, the photographers should have to handle the dissing, #15.

    Right, #18.

    Michelle and Larry Says:

    That photo of Heath Ledger before he passed away said everything.
    He went from sexy and content to having had some VERUCA SALT
    destroy his life.
    Her father Larry is the scum that helped Michelle go after Heath Ledger
    for custody.
    How dare Heath Ledger date a beautiful supermodel and make his Veruca Salt jealous of Gemma Ward.
    You can’t make someone love you. Michelle believed that
    Heath Ledger was hers. He was not meant for an actress that appeared like a child in a gown standing next to him on the carpet.

    Heath still loved Michelle. Gemma was just a fling and it wasn’t a serious relationship. She said that. Her own sister said that He was depressed because He and Michelle broke up. I love Heath but even Him wasn’t an angel!

    Celebrities are well compensated for any paparazzi pictures. It goes with the turf. They choose to be in the public eye. The paparazzi are hardworking people who have a right to make a buck. Boo hoo poor celebrities having another of their endless vacations disturbed.

    Lexi Says:


    Okay, but sometimes it gets to the point where it’s too much and they should stop.
    Btw, it’s not like the paparazzi only take pictures of stars when they’re out on vacation, they also do it when they are just out with their kid.
