Michelle Williams: Daughter Matilda Is My 'Stabilizing Force'

Michelle Williams: Daughter Matilda Is My 'Stabilizing Force'

Michelle Williams leaves an office building on Friday (November 18) in New York City.

The 31-year-old actress recently sat down with Reuters to chat about her latest movie, My Week With Marilyn.

“I’m not in as needy of a place, although I think I was when I played the [Marilyn Monroe] role. I found myself becoming far more dependent and clingy in a way that I had never done before,” she explained.

“Luckily, I have a stabilizing force, which is my [6-year-old] daughter [Matilda],” she added. “I often think, if Marilyn had a kid, she would have pulled through, I really do.”

FYI: Michelle is wearing a Tibi white tuxedo jacket with a Stella McCartney printed palm tree shirt.

    I love the fact that if Michelle is ever photographed it is with her daughter.

  • wait…

    “If Marilyn had a kid, she would have pulled through..”……..Heath Ledger died of a drug overdose just like Marilyn did and them having a kid together didn’t save him either. Not trying to be mean- just strange of her to say given the circumstances in her own life.

  • Fran the fan

    I know what she means but it is a little bit of a silly thing to say… I’m guessing she didn’t fully think it through before she spoke.

  • who cares

    Can someone please put something out there that we don’t already know not to be mean but come on

  • Peapo

    Haven’t seen any pics of Matilda in a long, long time. It’s good that Michelle and the paps are keeping her out of the public eye. Good job Michelle!!

  • wicked wench

    I know what she means. There’s something about having to be responsible for rearing this little person and having to be a role model that matures the soul. I know it did for me. I even wrote a poem about it.

    Michelle seems like a good person but she does get some of the lamest press headlines. Is there a secret cabal of reporters that have it out for her?

  • Ivan

    This current headline isn’t bad but some of the others have been pretty lame… wanted to clarify my earlier statement before I get jumped on.
