About Michelle Williams

Michelle Williams is a Hollywood actress and ex-fiance of late Heath Ledger.

Relationship with Heath Ledger

Heath Ledger met Michelle on the sets of Brokeback Mountain in the final week of December 2004 and asked her to join him for Christmas in Australia. There was a romantic dinner and a ballet performance at the Opera House before they flew to Perth to spend Christmas with his family, and they even went off to the hippie haven of Byron Bay. The two are in relationship for three years. Michelle tried to get him to check into rehab for drug abuse but the actor refused to do so and vowed to kick the habit on his own. She even drove him to the Promises Treatment Centre in Malibu, California, in March 2007 but Ledger refused to come out of the car and promised to kick the habit himself.

Michelle is away from films for some time after the death of Heath and has spent time with their daughter, Matilda Rose. In a November 08 interview, she said that her grief at Ledgers death gets worse. In February 09, Michelle said she is still unable to return to work after Ledgers death.
