Busy Philipps Traveled to Be with Michelle Williams on 10 Year Anniversary of Heath Ledger's Death

Busy Philipps flew to be by her best friend’s side during a difficult time.

The 38-year-old actress visited Michelle Williams on the 10-year anniversary of Heath Ledger‘s death on Monday (January 22). On her Instagram Story, Busy revealed that she was heading out of town, and posted a few photos of her flying out of town.

Later, Busy posted a photo of her with Michelle. Michelle and Heath were once engaged, and had a daughter together named Matilda, who is now 12.

Heath tragically died back in 2008 in his New York City apartment.

Our thoughts are with Heath‘s loved ones during this time.

    Could these people stop using Ledger’s death. Come on Williams wasn’t even dating Ledger when he died. I understand remembering Ledger for his daughter’s sake. But this public need to show how much they missed Ledger is just too much look at me for caring bs.

    oh please. it’s been 10 years and they weren’t even together anymore. michelle let’s other people do the milking for her, just like she did with the stupid salary difference for All The Money In The World.

  • moody

    I hate how Michelle let’s other people to the milking for her. Just like she did with her salary for the movie.

  • soyeahsowhat

    i thought she just got engaged? i know it’s her daughter’s dad, but it seems in poor taste to be hanging on to the memory and milking it. move on

    it’s insanely cruel and heartless to judge them for how they process and exorcise their grief. it doesn’t matter if michelle and heath were together at the time or not – everything else aside (including the fact that he was, y’know, the father of michelle’s daughter) he was their FRIEND. losing ANYONE close to you is unbelievably difficult, and this is a more than reasonable “sharing” of what they felt on the 10th anniversary of his death… smh bitterness is truly so ugly

  • Sansa Squad

    one snap on her friend’s insta story with a vague caption (that’s not even about him, necessarily – it’s about them and how they’re surviving) on the 10th anniversary of his death doesn’t exactly seem like “milking it” but okay

    Busy is doing too much; she’s almost making a mockery of it with this overshare. I also feel like she lives vicariously through Michelle.

  • Jaclyn Shortt

    People are nasty. It’s become pretty apparent in the years since his death that she left him because he had a drug problem and she left him for the sake of their child not being brought up in that environment. That doesn’t mean she didn’t love him when she left, she made an impossible decision for their daughter. I can’t imagine how difficult it must be for the other parent of your child to be dead and how heartbreaking it must be to watch your kid grieve. How horrible of her to want her best friend to be with her and mark the passing of someone who had a huge impact in her life. There’s nothing wrong with what was shared, I guarantee if they treated it like just a normal day people would be salty then too.

  • Jaclyn Shortt

    Busy and Heath were friends. If the father of my kid died, I’d hope my best friend would care enough to talk about it.

  • alex

    I’m with MICHELLE and BUSY because nobody,in the show business, has remember HEATH LEDGER:IT’S A SHAME….FUCK OFF TO THAT KIND OF PEOPLE WHO WORKS IN THE SHOW-BUSINESS BUT THINK TO BE IMMORTAL…….POOR STUPID,WOMAN OR MAN WHO BELIEVE IN THIS!

  • moody

    I don’t think Heath & Michelle were on speaking terms when he died. She got herself pregnant and trapped Heath.

  • Gina

    Talking about it is one thing; posting tacky & attention-seeking pics on social media is another. The post she did the other day about hearing a song that always reminded her of Heath was sweet, but this, is overkill.

  • wearing

    dumbasses judging people whose shoes they’d be too weak to walk in.

  • wearing

    it’s funny that you use the word stupid when you yourself aren’t so bright

  • briansbottom

    “Got herself pregnant”? LMAO I haven’t heard that phrase in ages. Just how does one get oneself pregnant???

  • briansbottom

    I can’t believe it’s been 10 years. I won’t judge Michelle or anyone else over how they grieve. Who cares if she wasn’t still with Heath? He was the father of her child, and she obviously still cared very much about him.

    My good friend Charlize, from Denver, paid off her academy grants entirely, and what’s a lot more amusing, would be the fact that she was able to do it by working online 90 minutes a day, making use of specified instruction they showed there. When I asked her frankly what she was working on, she gave me this site

  • moody

    You have sex with a man you want and get pregnant. It’s quite simple.

    @disqus_tiDzHOIka0:disqus It really isn’t though. It was legit only two things she posted…Busy has never shared anything regarding how she or Michelle spends Heath’s death anniversary until NOW. Busy is clearly the more open of the two, and Michelle gave her a go ahead for this one instance since an entire DECADE has passed since Matilda’s father died. If Busy or Michelle wanted to share that with the public/their fans that is their choice. Get a grip.

  • #GoBuyUnbreakable

    @Sansa Squad Someone with brains, wow! Don’t go on Daily Mail though, the ignorance is far worse smh. >w<

  • Amber

    Agreed.

  • Gina

    Oh I have a grip, on the fact that Busy loves showing us that her best friend is Michelle Williams. I also have a grip on the fact that her second post looks redundant & staged, which is why it comes off attention-seeking. I stand by what I said; you typing words in all caps isn’t gonna change that & your temper tantrum isn’t gonna change that either.

  • Sansa Squad

    Ugh, I can only imagine – people are so hateful. It’s insane to me that all this outrage comes out of one 10-second photo on an Instagram STORY (not even a post!!! Truly could not be more lowkey!!!) shared by people who actually *knew* Heath, unlike any of the people complaining…
