The 2005 drama "Brokeback Mountain" not only catapulted "Dawson's Creek" star Michelle Williams onto Hollywood's A-list, it was also the film in which she fell in love with co-star Heath Ledger.
The couple went on to have a child together, and in 2008, Ledger died of a drug overdose. Three years after the tragedy, Williams says she plans to watch their movie with 5-year-old daughter, Matilda, when the time is right.
"I was just an actor who happened to be lucky enough to be in the right place, and it was the place where I met Matilda's father, and that is a lot," Williams, 30, tells January's Angeleno magazine of "Brokeback Mountain." "It was a lot. And it will be a lot for Matilda too, when she gets around to watching it. I will watch it with her, when she's ready. It is hard to imagine what that would feel like, but one day, yes, we will watch it together."
"Her hair is down to her chin and she has decided she can have her bangs trimmed, but she doesn't want a bob anymore," says Williams. "A bob is cute for a three-year-old but she is five now... It's crazy how fast time is going for me and how agonizingly slow it is going for her. When she was four she would say 'I am four and a half,' 'I am four and five-sixths,' 'four and seven-eighths,' because all the increments mattered."
