Golden Globes winner Michelle Williams talks to GQ magazine about how she has come to terms with being sexy onscreen, and breaks down when asked about the father of her daughter, the late Heath Ledger.
On being sexy…
“I wouldn’t say that that would be one of my first qualities as a human being—being sexy. And I think because my character on Dawson’s Creek was sexy…sexualized…sexual…I saw all the negative attention and connotations that can come along with that. And that those things can keep people from seeing you clearly.”
On her life with Ledger…
“Our initial meeting, the circumstances of how we first met, were cosmic or something… Yeah, a lot of things happened at once… It’s a bit like: We had a lot of things to do, because we didn’t have a lot of time, or something.”
On if she thinks about she and Ledger somehow ending up together:
“That would make me way too sad to answer,” she says, breaking into tears. ” “No. I said it would make me too sad to answer but it’s also … one of my favorite things to imagine… It’s actually one of my favorite places to visit.”
