Michelle Williams (Not to be confused with Beyonce Back-Up Singer No. 2 of Destiny’s Child fame….) springs onto the Feb. 2011 issue of Marie Claire Magazine with her most revealing remarks to date about the death of late love Heath Ledger.
In the issue that hits newsstands on Jan. 18, the actress — up for a Golden Globe for her role in the drama Blue Valentine — opens up about Ledger, who died of an overdose in a Manhattan apartment nearly three years ago.
“Very obviously, for me and for her, there’s a hole in our life,” she says about the passing of daughter Matilda’s father. “Of course the natural inclination is to want to fill it and make it disappear, but what I’ve come to recently is that it’s impossible. Nothing will fit in that hole because what we want back we can’t get, which is this one person,” Williams noted.
“I’m not going to rush anything and scamper around like a mad person and make myself crazy. I’m trying to be respectful of the absence. I’m not trying to fill it up. It is what it is.”
