It is hard work to build up a reputation as a big star in the entertainment industry and, once you decide to settle down and start a family, it becomes even harder to juggle the family life and the career. Imagine then, just how hard it must be, to be a single mother, raising a child on your own, while also having an acting career to think about.
Enter Michelle Williams. The beautiful and talented actress embarked on a relationship with the late, great Heath Ledger and their romance brought them their daughter Matilda. Heath passed away back in 2008 and Michelle has revealed how being a single mother in Hollywood is not an easy thing to do.
Williams explained to Elle UK, "I feel like I'm so good at raising a kid when I'm not working. I don't forget anything. I've got everything covered. It's a real luxury to have a moment when I'm not scrambling. I feel like most of my life, I'm trying to do two things at once, both to the best of my abilities. So that leaves me feeling pretty exhausted."
Being so exhausted all the time has given Michelle Williams a bit of a reputation among her close friends, as she added, "I'm the person who falls asleep all the time. You invite me over for dinner or to a party, and there's a whole scrapbook of pictures of me napping. I've even been given a nickname because of my snoring."
As far as her acting career is concerned, Michelle Williams will next appear on the big screen in the upcoming movie Suite Francaise, which co-stars Margot Robbie, Ruth Wilson, and Sam Riley, among others. Suite Francaise will open in the UK on March 13, while an official US release date is yet to be confirmed.
