Michelle Williams Covers 'GQ' February 2012

Michelle Williams Covers 'GQ' February 2012

Michelle Williams shows off her amazing body in some sexy lingerie on the cover of GQ‘s February 2012 issue, on newsstands January 24.

Here’s what the 31-year-old My Week With Marilyn actress had to share:

On her and her late partner, actor Heath Ledger‘s attraction to each other: “Our initial meeting, the circumstances of how we first met, were cosmic or something. Yeah, a lot of things happened at once. It’s a bit like: We had a lot of things to do, because we didn’t have a lot of time, or something.”

On Heath’s death: “It was making me crazy. I felt like I was going crazy. It was too much—trying to deal with what had happened and trying to deal with what was at our doorstep. I just felt trapped. And it’s not just me—there’s somebody else who I’m trying to protect [daughter Matilda], and I can’t. I can’t make it stop, I can’t make it go away. Trying to find ways to explain it or shield her from it. It’s like you’re trying to go about your life, and make dinner.”

On how her Dawson’s Creek character, Jen, influenced her: “I wouldn’t say that that would be one of my first qualities as a human being—being sexy. And I think because my character on Dawson’s Creek was sexy… sexualized… sexual…I saw all the negative attention and connotations that can come along with that. And that those things can keep people from seeing you clearly.”

    wow,it dosen’t get more unsexy than this!

  • Mlllllle

    She ruins 10 years of good acting work with those ugly pictures.
    What a shame.

  • Lola

    Now that’s a real woman’s body.

  • Female

    Wow, this is tacky. I love Michelle, but a GQ cover and talking about Heath? Why is she doing this?

  • James

    She looks smoking hot. Great pictures. And you jealous girls out there who always give my posts down arrows because I say good things about female celebrities are really pathetic.

  • Female

    @James: Yes, she looks hot, but she doesn’t need to do this. That’s all I’m saying. Maybe Harvey Weinstein pushed her into doing this all for the Oscar campaign.

  • Alaia

    Jesus, if you want to take your bra off for a magazine shoot, at least do it for a classy publication like W Magazine (see Carey Mulligan). I mean, this is everything BUT that. Awful wig, awful expression.

  • Lana

    Pictures are wondeful, she’s incredibly hot but doesn’t look vulgar. She talks about Heath, so what? I think he would like to see these pictures and would be proud of her and her career.

  • Thai

    “Who knew Michelle Williams had this body?” Answer: Photoshop knew.

  • http://ciceklisirtcantamgitmis.tumblr.com ingrid

    I can’t belive that. All I’m asking is why?? Why michelle did that? It’s absolutely unnecessary. Maybe her body is hot or not, who cares? Even after GG awards, I don’t expect that. ( for oscar campaign) I think Michelle Williams is not like ‘that woman’
    And talking about Ledger? In this magazine?
    What the hell is going on?

  • elle

    Nooo!! Michelle you are a great actress AND you’re gorgeous – but that much was already clear without need for this :(

  • http://www.theinfamouslife.com miss infamous

    WTF?! I would never think she would agree to do something like this? lol tacky

  • Ozzy

    Whatever she does, it’s always wrong. come on, she looks amazing.

  • whaaa

    And Oscar goes to Meryl Streep…this is so tacky. You’re biggest supporters are women, you don’t have to sex it up.

  • ha ha

    We’re all seeing what Harvey saw up close and personal. This is another casting couch fave. Here are her s lutty true colors

  • Teresa

    Can the press still stop treating Michelle Williams like she was Heath Ledger’s widow. Heath Ledger and Michelle were over as a couple way before they made it public in September 2007, and he was happily dating Gemma Ward (and probably had been for nearly a year) and spent Christmas with her in Australia and their respective families and introduced her to everyone there as his girlfriend. At least Gemma has had the dignity NOT to milk Heath Ledger after his death. I understand that Michelle does not get magazine deals without promising to talk about Heath, but this pretence, the way she acts like she was his widow when he had actually LEFT her and was very inlove with fellow Perthsider Gemma, has gone on for far too long.

    I have lost respect for the press who are too lazy to get their facts right, and for Michelle and her publicity mad behaviour.

    Michelle, show a little of respect to Gemma Ward, will you!!!! And to Heath!!!

  • Teresa

    Oh and two more things:

    Berenice Bejo deserved the Golden Globe, not Michelle, for her wonderful performance in The Arrtist.

    The photos in this article are TOTALLY photoshopped. Sexy Michelle is most certainly not. She has a truly awful APPLE body shape.

  • Laila

    heath’s friends said that heath MISSED MATILDA AND MICHELLE for example aloi or kappur. you can’t get over it, you always post the same things under every article about michelle. maybe heath had a good time with that model, but she was just a fling, her sister even said that he was depressed over his split with michelle, and their friend, michelle and heath’s , kelly hill confirmed that they met in january and talked about their relationship. ups.

  • BloodbuzzOhio

    @Teresa: Berenice and Michelle weren’t even in the same category, moron.

  • Teresa

    THAT’S A LIE, HEATH’S REAL FRIENDS NEVER SAID THAT, THE PRESS MADE THAT UP JUST LIKE THEY MADE UP LOADS OF STUFF ABOUT HEATH AFTER THE SPLIT AND THEN HIS DEATH.

    HEATH’S FATHER-FIGURE FRIEND, TERRY GILLIAM HAD THE GUTS TO SPEAK UP ABOUT THE TRUTH ABOUT HEATH AND MICHELLE, AND NICOLA PECORINI, AND THE OTHERS HAVE KEPT QUIET.

  • Tabs

    Not digging the GQ cover…could have been a little more tasteful, however, she has a good body. Really not into bashing women and their bodies…we get enough of that from society (well except for LeAnn Rimes…geezus!!!) Most of the movies, and actors who has been nominated for awards I haven’t seen their movies yet so I cannot give an objective opinion on who should win. But its great to see that out of all the Dawson Greek actors she has emerged as the most sucessful. Correct me if I’m wrong, but isn’t this the 3 movies she has been nominated for. Brokeback Mountain, Blue Valentine, and now My Week With Marilyn

  • Anne

    Maybe Michelle is not a widow, but she and Heath were together for more than 3 years and broke up only 5 or 6 months before he died. They had a baby together. Many memories and plans. Something went wrong, ok. But people often get back to each other. They didn’t have that chance. I see it like she still loves him. And it’s beautiful.

  • He

    I guess you guys think Michelle can strip down and simulate sex scenes in her films but can’t do it tastefully for a lad magazine?

    She’s just showing the world what she is able to do professionally that no one knows about because they don’t watch any of her films. The public, as seen here, still associate michelle williams with a fragile girl who needs protection from men even at the ripe old age of 31.

  • ADL

    I wish she hadn’t done this photoshoot, but whatever.

    Also, stop attacking her for talking about Heath. This interview, along with every other interview she’s had, the journalists (and media in general) are incredibly obsessed with trying to get something about him out of her in their interviews, just for the novelty.

    I encourage everyone to read the interview, its quite nice, but the writer is kind of an ass for being totally obsessed with trying to nail her with a Ledger question.

  • Laila

    but unfortunately, Nicola Pecorini said that he believe that Heath died of a broken heart, and as he said “it’s romantic but tragic”. Kapur said that ” Heath was going through a difficult separation from his girlfriend Michelle Williams” and he never seen him so depressed. but it’s not all.
    kelly hill said that heath and michelle met in january, heath told her that the was the happiest with matilda and michelle. unfortunately, you don’t have more arguments, besides what gemma said. i have a lot yet. they’re not anonymous, all these things said people who has a name and knew heath.

  • ha ha

    Heath was s crewing every hot female celeb breathing before during and after michelle. He just hap’d to knock her up. Doesnt mean she was more special than the others but if she needs to tell herself that, ok. The whole cosmic thing is just lol delusion!

  • Marieke de Graaf

    YOWZA! That is one hot woman.

  • sweetness

    This is called MILKING.

    If Heath Ledger were still alive she’d have been out of his radar it would be laughable.

  • busy

    I don’t like it. It looks cheap., She looks like she is advertizing for a brothel, the Mustang Ranch, in Nevada or something like that.

  • WWWW

    @sweetness: that interviewer asked her about him. everyone says she’s milking his name but still are curious about him and interested in their relationship. she didn’t say anything special. anything wrong.

  • mel

    @Mlllllle: I sort of agree with you but she relly wants that Oscar and this is all about the campaing.

  • WWW

    @sweetness: hmmm.. this interviewer asked her about him. everyone says she’s milking his name but still are curious about him and interested in their relationship. she didn’t say anything special. anything wrong.

  • Elana

    She’s cute.

  • [~Fug Face Man!ston~]

    …Ugly pictures. Nothing sexy about her.

  • mel

    @sweetness: Are you serious? She’s one of the best actresses around and extremely talented. SO SO TALENTED that even looking nothing like MArilyn Monroe she pulled it off and got her essence. Her performance is nothing short of brilliant.

  • sweetness

    Hey she wants that Oscar so if talking about her dead ex bf will give her edge…go for it. it’s called milking to take advantage. it’s not a crime it is what it is.
    Just because an interviewer asks her about him does not mean she has to respond..she could say that’s private and move on.

  • GQ Trash Cover

    @sweetness:
    She did the same thing last year. She milked her story of woe about Heath to win sympathy votes. First of all Michelle can NEVER change the truth that she went after him RUTHLESSLY for sole custody and that is the only reason Heath Ledger became so depressed.
    IT HAD NOTHING TO DO WITH HEATH MISSING MICHELLE.
    How would you feel if someone was out to get you through making up
    stories about the terrible influence you were and not fit to be your daughter’s father. She was ready to RUIN him. Heath Ledger loved his child but I am sure he never wanted one with Michelle but that did not stop him from being a very responsible father. Heath was being bombarded with Michelle’s lawyers and she must have ran to daddy for more and more suggestions to destroy his reputation. After he passed away she wants sympathy? Nice try Michelle but that will never happen. This girl better stop acting as if they were married and that he
    loved her because he most certainly never did. His family should have
    gone after HER for threatening sole custody based on NOTHING but
    her spite that he never loved her and went out with his friends to push
    Michelle away and escape her.

  • Lily

    oh why Michelle why would you pose in your underwear? I thought you were one of the classier ones. ah, I know- you were inspired by MArylin Monroe but you are nothing like her

  • Missy

    How can you know who he loved or not?
    I’m Heath’s fan. But i don’t think he was an angel. And we don’t know what happend in their relationship. It’ even isn’t our business. One thing that i know is that, that michelle is a great mother. And that’s why i respect her.

  • kari

    I too, am so sick of hearing her talk about Heath. Her speech at the Golden Globes was sickening. She is not the only single mother out there whose daughter lost a father. They were never married, they were broken up and that is that. She needs to move on and quit using his death to make us all feel sorry for her.

  • Charlie

    I love her as an actress, she’s VERY talented, but I just hate it that she has to bring up Heath in every interview. Every interview is the same. He’s missed, but it just seems that they’re using his memory to sell magazines. It’s just really disrespectful. He deserves better than to be used like this, it just does not seem graceful.

  • RedRover

    I see no problem whatsoever with her GQ photos, good for her for shaking things up a bit. However some parts of that interview were a little uncomfortable to read. Why didn’t she just put the kibosh on some of those questions?

  • The Nanny

    @Missy:
    The hired nanny and Michelle’s family are the ones that take care of that child and it was Heath that let Michelle have her way letting her continue
    making movies while he became Mr. Mom.
    Michelle’s plan worked at least for little awhile until he just couldn’t take it anymore and had to leave her.

  • RedRover

    Ignore previous comment, I don’t care that much… although I seemingly care enough to post another comment… weird!

  • RedRover

    I meant… ignore my previous comment… damn typos.

  • RedRover

    Wow the animosity between all the Heath and Michelle fans reminds me of the Askars-fandom… just had to say that… again.

  • RedRover

    I hope I get a thumbs down for me last comment… that would really make my day :)
