Michelle Williams

Michelle Williams celebrates her 34th birthday today so we have a sneaky peek at her loves over the years.

Williams first famous boyfriend and fiancé was Heath Ledger, who she met on the set of Brokeback Mountain in 2004, a film in which they were both nominated for Oscars.

In April 2005, it was announced that they were expecting their first child together and Williams gave birth to a daughter Matilda Rose Ledger.

The couple lived together in New York- but by September 2007, they ended their relationship after three years.  Ledger then died in 2008 from an accidental overdose. She told Elle magazine; "I didn't know where to go. I couldn't imagine any place in the world that was gonna feel good to me." (Wikipedia)

More recently, when reflecting on his death, she said; ‘In a strange way, I miss that year, because all those possibilities that existed then are gone. It didn't seem unlikely to me that he could walk through a door or could appear from behind a bush. It was a year of very magical thinking and, in some ways, I'm sad to be moving further and further away from it.’ (IMDB)

After his death Williams gave very few interviews as the media attention spun back on her. She eventually told the press that his spirt is still in his daughter. (Wikipedia) ‘His family and I watch Matilda as she whispers to trees, hugs animals, and takes steps two at a time, and we know that he is with us still. (IMDB)

Williams then went on to date How I Met Your Mother actor, Jason Segel.

Happy birthday Michelle.
