Michelle Williams Secretly Marries Phil Elverum!

Michelle Williams Secretly Marries Phil Elverum!

Michelle Williams has confirmed her marriage to musician Phil Elverum in Vanity Fair‘s new issue!

Here’s what the 37-year-old actress had to share with the mag…

On her relationship with Phil: “I never gave up on love…I always say to Matilda, ‘Your dad [Heath Ledger] loved me before anybody thought I was talented, or pretty, or had nice clothes.’ Obviously I’ve never once in my life talked about a relationship…but Phil isn’t anyone else. And that’s worth something. Ultimately the way he loves me is the way I want to live my life on the whole. I work to be free inside of the moment. I parent to let Matilda feel free to be herself, and I am finally loved by someone who makes me feel free.”

On her advice about finding love: “Don’t settle. Don’t settle for something that feels like a prison, or is hard, or hurts you,” she says. “If it doesn’t feel like love, it’s not love.”

On why she’s talking about her relationship and marriage publicly now: “I don’t really want to talk about any of it. But there’s that tease, that lure, that’s like, What if this helps somebody? What if somebody who has always journeyed in this way, who has struggled as much as I struggled, and looked as much as I looked, finds something that helps them?”

FYI: Phil performs under the name Mount Eerie. In the article, the writer points out that Phil suffered a huge loss when his wife, Geneviève Castrée, “was diagnosed with inoperable stage-4 pancreatic cancer.” She died in July of 2016. They had one daughter together. Phil and his daughter moved in with Michelle and Matilda in Brooklyn, New York.

    oh poor you and your struggles.

  • namers

    Projection much?

  • lulubelle

    excuse me, did you read what she said? she said “What if somebody who has always journeyed in this way, who has struggled as much as I struggled…”

  • KS_in_TP

    Everyone has their struggles and their journeys. Just because someone is famous with a good career doesn’t mean they don’t have struggles. Good for her respecting marriage, respecting herself and her daughter, and not settling for a trash relationship.

  • briansbottom

    I love Michelle. She seems so down-to-earth. I’m glad she found love. And she’s a good mom – look how she keeps her daughter out of the spotlight. Congratulations, Michelle and Phil!

  • KS_in_TP

    What a way to support and encourage women. Mocking them.

    Good grief. This is 2018.

  • nicpace

    her advice on finding love, don’t settle for something that’s hard and hurtful. Girl, no relationship is easy or painless. She should know by now, she did settle for Heath and his addiction. Was she saying that those times are easy and full of happiness? She’s happy now I’m happy for her, but giving advice on relationship, I don’t think she has the best example..just my opinion

  • lulubelle

    I don’t have to support and encourage EVERY woman on the planet.

  • A Ristodemos

    Has everyone lost the father of their children to drug addiction?

  • lulubelle

    she didn’t lose her father and she was talking about herself.

  • cuzjcacjo

    how long have they been married?

  • A Ristodemos

    You do not understand what I am talking about. Heath was the father of her child, who died. You must not have been aware.

  • lulubelle

    Yes, I’m well aware of that. And she wasn’t with Heath anymore when he died. What I quoted was her talking about HERSELF not her kid.

  • KS_in_TP

    Oh, that’s how your feminism works. Selective. I see.

  • lulubelle

    Yeah, selective. I don’t support strippers, hos, and women who I don’t respect. You don’t like that, too bad.

  • KS_in_TP

    Wow, you keep digging yourself in deeper. So it’s “I’ll respect you if I feel like it” — so much for universal respect for humanity and all living things — they can just go fuck themselves, right?

  • lulubelle

    So I guess if Hitler were alive you’d respect and support him, because, after all, he’d be a living thing. I’m not digging myself anywhere, YOU ARE.

  • KS_in_TP

    Hitler is dead. Idiotic example.

  • KS_in_TP

    Also, using that man as a point of reference in a topic about your bizarre disrespect of Michelle Williams — oh fuck it. You’re an idiot.

  • Jo

    She’s probably talking about other relationships she kept private in between Heath and her new husband.. and she’s absolutely right, if it’s a square you can’t fit it into a round hole. I don’t think she’s talking about a person who you love and begins hurting *themselves*

  • Max

    Wow Mahbelle you must be a terrible, judging and bitter person. And very disrespectful. You know nothing about Michelle Williams and her private life and struggles. What does it matter what her relationship to the father of her child was when he did. They are connected forever, they have a child together. Of course it’s a struggle and a key moment in her life when this person dies.

  • mahbelle

    STFU. you’re so annoying.

  • Max

    or what? you don’t like people calling you out for your disgusting behavior? well tough luck bitch, because we ain’t gonna stop.
