Michelle Williams Details How Tabloids Have Impacted Her Life

Michelle Williams is all about love on the cover of Elle magazine’s January 2017 issue, on newsstands December 13.

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

On how the tabloid onslaught made it impossible to experience an authentic life: “If you feel like people are watching you, it’s impossible to have an authentic experience of being alive,” Williams says. “There’s a performative aspect and a guardedness, and that’s just death. I don’t know how to live like that, and I don’t know how to give a life to my child like that.”

On how she’s naturally open but learned to set boundaries for herself: “It’s not naturally my inclination to be a boundary draw-er,” she says, shutting her eyes and pinching the bridge of her nose. “I’m like, ‘Open up all the doors and the windows and let everybody in.’ That’s the aim of my work, too.” But this isn’t acting. “It’s been a really, really long time since I’ve been in an interview. But I have better boundaries now. I feel less susceptible to emotional wreck-diving to come up with explanations for everything.”

On the inspiration that drove her Oscar-worthy performance in Manchester by the Sea: “Everybody talks about the silences in movies and how interesting they are but it’s a lot easier than connecting beat to beat, line to line, inside of a scene in real time in front of a thousand people. But when I went to make [Manchester by the Sea], I felt a little bit more freedom, more access inside of myself.”

FYI: Michelle is wearing a Michael Kors Collection sweater on the cover.

James Van Der Beek and Michelle Williams worked together on the hit series Dawson’s Creek and they haven’t been photographed together in public in years, but that changed this weekend!

The 39-year-old actor showed up to support Michelle, 36, at a screening of her new movie Manchester By the Sea on Saturday night (December 3) in Los Angeles.

James and Michelle have not been photographed together in 13 years, since the series ended back in 2003.
