Daily Dish: Michelle Williams and Spike Jonze Call it Quits
Michelle Williams is too heartbroken to date
Heath Ledger’s ex Michelle Williams drops a bombshell in next month’s issue of Vogue — she has officially separated from her boyfriend of 14 months, Spike Jonze.
“The timing was impossible,” she disclosed. “I thought falling in love again was the only thing that was going to save me from the pain. This erroneous idea: It just makes things more complicated.”
The 29-year-old actress began dating Jonze in July of ’08, just months after Ledger’s untimely passing.
Michelle admits that she “doesn’t know” how to juggle being a single mother and a stable girlfriend, and that she still struggles with her former lover’s death.
“I was holding it together by a string and a paper clip in the fall and winter,” she said. “I didn’t know if I could keep it all together … You console yourself by saying it’s all a deepening process. But it’s weird. After the first year, the pain is less intense — it’s less immediate. But the magical thinking goes away too. And that’s a whole new reckoning.”
It sounds like Williams just needs a bit more time. We hope that she finds what she needs once she is able to successfully move on. (Usmagazine.com)
