Michelle Williams: I Didn't Expect to Be Dating at 36 with an 11-Year-Old

Michelle Williams looks gorgeous wearing a Michael Kors photo on the cover of Porter magazine’s latest issue, on newsstands December 2.

Here’s what the 36-year-old Manchester By the Sea actress had to share:

On being a single mom to daughter Matilda with the late Heath Ledger: “I know a handful of women in similar positions [to me], it’s kind of like a club. It’s a sh*tty club and we don’t want any new members… and all of the current members are exhausted. But man, oh man, it’s lifesaving to have [them]. My friend Busy [Phillips] and her husband Marc [Silverstein] said, ‘Michelle, you’re in like a blackout zone, everybody is now partnered up and you have to wait for people to start getting divorced.’ Oh my f*cking God…”

On getting into the dating scene: “Talk about a learning process. I think, God, what would I say about it? I feel really sensitive about it and certainly did not expect to be still dating at 36 with an 11-year-old. This is not what I imagined. I’m like a cat, I’m a very domestic creature. I just want to stay home and take care of people. But I’m also happy with myself and just because I might have a desire to be with someone… that won’t lead me to marry the wrong person.”

On finding her life complete: “I watched [Matilda] warm in the sun, in her swimsuit, get on her bicycle and smile and wave as she rode off to go meet her friends. I went back into the house and sobbed because of this incredibly simple moment – common everyday happiness. I really felt like in that moment, like wow, we’ve done it. Not only are we OK, she’s happy. Life has brought us to a place that’s not just surviving, but thriving.”

    Uh, because she doesn’t have a father, perhaps???

  • moonriver

    one can grow up just fine without a father. many children do.

  • Gina

    Just as many children don’t.

  • moonriver

    what’s your point? matilda has no choice since her father has passed and michelle hasn’t married.

  • Gina

    Honey, my point is the same as it was 15 minutes ago. Michelle had EVERY right to be concerned if her daughter was gonna be ok or not.

  • moonriver

    you’re very annoying. and don’t call me honey.

  • moonriver
