La hija de Heath Ledger y Michelle Williams nació un 28 de Octubre de 2005, y por lo tanto HOY, HOY, HOY es su cuarto cumpleaños (a verdad, por algo será que no pasaron mate). Y por si aún no han leído la revista Vogue, Michelle Williams en entrevista declaro varias cosillas:

Michelle Williams these days divides her time between her house in Brooklyn and a house in upstate New York. The location of the latter property is a secret, for understandable reasons: Since the death in 2008 of Heath Ledger, the father of her daughter, Matilda, the beautiful and shy actress has inevitably found herself at the center of a morbid cult and, most pertinent, the object of the tabloids’ banal, destructive intrusiveness. She has been extremely reluctant, as a consequence, to give interviews of any sort, even to promote her film work—the most recent example of which is Martin Scorsese’s Shutter Island, in which she plays (not inappropriately) a ghost. Williams told me, “I didn’t know what my boundaries were for a long time, which made interviews feel very unsafe. I can talk about grief, because that’s mine; about single parenting; about trying to balance work and kids. But what I don’t have to talk about is what happened between Heath and me in our relationship.”

On a more concrete level, speaking with Williams involves meeting her at a variety of neutral locations, urban and rural. In my case, the process culminated in a visit to the upstate house, where she and her three-year-old daughter have spent a part of the last year trying to restore equilibrium to lives rocked by heartbreak and grief. “I have been severely accident-prone over the past twelve months. I fell downstairs, broke a toe, put my fingers in a blender—seriously distracted.” While Matilda was in a play group, her mother would be faced with the stark existential question “How am I going to get through the day?” Often, what she did was “cry, nap, sit and stare, try to figure out what to make her for dinner, talk to friends on the phone.” She says, “I was holding it together by a string and a paper clip in the fall and winter. I didn’t know if I could keep it all together.” There are photos in the house of Gurumayi. Williams is not a follower and has never been to the ashram, but one day, she reached out to friends, and they arrived with the photos, constructed a “little altar,” and took her through a rite of mourning. (“I wish we had rituals about grief,” she says. “I wish it were still the Victorian times, and we could go from black to gray to mauve to pink, and have rings with hair in them.”) The photos are a memento of that caring moment—memento because Williams is now in a different place. “Friends never really left me alone when we came up here,” she says. “Women and kids really got us through the winter. One got me gardening in the spring, and that’s when it started to turn around. I think it’s something about being in nature that made it more possible. I remember being on my hands and knees. The ground was cold and muddy. I pushed back the dead leaves and saw the bright green shoots of spring. Under all this decay something was growing. Caring for the garden reminded me to care for myself.” The story of Michelle Williams, it turns out, is not a story of a young artist derailed by tragedy and public scrutiny.

A confession: My interest in Williams was not piqued by recent sad events or by the preceding happier events, when the papers were filled with snapshots of her and Ledger strolling with their baby daughter in sunlit brownstone Brooklyn. I fell for her when she cashed in her Dawson’s Creek starletdom for an Off-Broadway play called Killer Joe and for Wim Wenders’s Land of Plenty, a brilliant, grave, and indeed brave investigation of post-9/11 America in all of its xenophobia and pathos. (Just imagine one of the Gossip Girls doing likewise.) In her subsequent work, most notably Brokeback Mountain (for which she earned an Oscar nomination) and most movingly Wendy and Lucy (an unsentimental look at white American poverty, directed by Kelly Reichardt), the 29-year-old Williams has established herself as the least flashy and most emotionally riveting actress of her generation. Says Sir Ben Kingsley, who first worked with her in Species, when she was twelve, and is her costar in Shutter Island, “There’s something elemental and crucial about her. Because she is so intelligent, she gets to the basic issue of her character. She’s not blanket-bombing it with fussy acting or guessing. She’s very in the moment, which I very much admire, both in acting and in life, I reckon.”

Although she has been an actress since the age of ten (she was born in Montana and raised in San Diego, from which her parents would take her to Los Angeles for auditions), was legally emancipated at the age of fifteen from her middle-class family (“I didn’t grow up in a house with a lot of cool music or paintings, but my dad had good books”), and never went to college, Williams is clearly intellectually resourceful and in possession of a rich personal hinterland. Ryan Gosling, who plays her husband in Derek Cianfrance’s forthcoming Blue Valentine, says, “She’s like Montana. If you want to get anywhere in Montana, you have to sit tight. You’re on Montana time. It’s very beautiful, but it’s vast. If you want to get somewhere with Michelle, you really have to be patient. She’s so vast. You really have to sit back and enjoy the view. There’s so much going on internally, so much ground to cover.”

She is bookish and cerebral. “In North Carolina [where Dawson’s Creek was shot], I’d sit on the floor of Barnes & Noble and work my way through the shelves.” She read, among others, Philip Roth: “I like American Pastoral the best, but Sabbath’s Theater did my head in.” (Says the artist Dan Estabrook, a dear old friend, “Her time on Dawson’s Creek was marked by reading and reading and reading—she was always recommending books to bartenders.”) Nowadays “I read poetry. I find a poet I like and then read the poets they like.” Hence Galway Kinnell and Mary Oliver and Frank O’Hara. She is a huge fan, musically, of Leonard Cohen and of Antony and the Johnsons. Currently, in preparation for Reichardt’s next movie, which is set on the Oregon Trail in pioneer times, she is plowing through a bedside stack of tomes about the American frontier. There is also an open volume of Doris Lessing in Matilda’s playroom, and Williams warmly recommended to me (as she has to many of her friends) Rebecca Solnit’s elegant meditation on loss and its possibilities, A Field Guide to Getting Lost.

Not surprisingly, six months after Ledger’s death, the grief-stricken Williams turned to Joan Didion’s The Year of Magical Thinking. “I just don’t see the upside to this,” she says. “You console yourself by saying it’s all a deepening process. But it’s weird. After the first year, the pain is less intense; it’s less immediate. But the magical thinking goes away, too. And that’s a whole new reckoning. But every time I really miss him and wonder where he’s gone, I just look at her.”

Whether or not Williams wants to talk about it, it’s clear that she loved Ledger and that her grieving has been twofold: There was death, but before that there was the loss of her partner and the dream of an intact family, a loss that Williams, it’s pretty clear, did not want. “Brokeback Mountain was an unrepeatable moment in time, a very charmed time in my life. I was in love; I was in a movie I was proud to be a part of, and with a beautiful brand-new baby. Everything was good in that moment.” After the split, she did everything to get away, including taking on a film in Sweden. “I just didn’t want to be at home. Geography is a great solution for heartbreak.”

Particularly if the paparazzi are recording your and your child’s every move. Williams’s need for privacy and emotional space only grew, of course, after Ledger’s death. “Because he died—it’s so hard to say it, now that it’s a fact—it’s because of this tragedy that there’s more paparazzi. That is hard to be graceful and understanding about.” Brooklyn was and remains difficult on a mundane level, too. At her local coffee shop, a little girl asked Williams, “What’s her name?” “Matilda.” The girl said to Matilda, entirely innocently, “What’s it like being famous? Are you so sad that your daddy died like Michael Jackson?” “That girl was six,” Williams says without rancor. Afterward, mother and child had a discussion about third-party attention. “It’s because people really loved your daddy that they want to take your picture, to know you’re all right” is what she tells Matilda. “My reaction to it is going to be her reaction to it,” Williams says. “It’s an OK model for her to see that her mom has boundaries. It’s OK for me to be upset and to raise my voice. But it’s an ongoing struggle. It’s hard to be the man and the woman in that [paparazzi] situation. Heath always used to do that for us.” When I ask Estabrook how his friend has changed over the past eighteen months, he replies, “There’s been a necessary but unfortunate hardening. But she’s snapped into a philosophy: She will do whatever it takes to give Matilda as normal a life as possible.”

This is the perspective that being upstate offers. At home, Williams wears faded cutoffs, a checked shirt from Steven Alan, and a stripy men’s cardigan from A.P.C. Whether she’s in the sticks or in the boroughs, her style is consistently low-key, classic, and faintly nostalgic. She likes clothes that construct narratives. “My favorite things that I see her wear are when I think she’s creating childhood memories for Matilda,” says Daphne Javitch, a costumer who became Williams’s great friend when they bonded over the same navy peacoat by Boy. “So much of her style has to do with the fact that she’s a soulful, practical, beautiful kind of person. Can she garden in it? Can she get a bagel in it? Because she’s such a lovely, smart person, she looks adorable.”

Y para quién tampoco aprobo inglés, aquí va en español 😀 :

En particular, si los paparazzi y la grabación de su de su niño cada movimiento. Necesidad de Williams para la privacidad y el espacio emocional sólo creció, por supuesto, después de la muerte de Ledger.  “Debido a su muerte-que es tan difícil decir que, ahora que es un hecho-que es a causa de esta tragedia que hay más paparazzi. Esto es difícil de ser graciosa y comprensión”. Brooklyn fue y sigue siendo difícil en un nivel mundano, también.  En su tienda local de café, una niña le preguntó Williams, “¿Cuál es su nombre?” “Matilda.” “Matilda”. The girl said to Matilda, entirely innocently, “What’s it like being famous? Are you so sad that your daddy died like Michael Jackson?” La niña dijo a Matilda, totalmente inocente, “¿Qué se siente ser famoso? ¿Es usted tan triste que su padre murió como Michael Jackson?” “Esa niña tenía seis años”, dice Williams, sin rencor. Después, la madre y el niño tuvo una discusión sobre la atención de terceros. “Es porque la gente realmente amaba a su papá que quieren tomar su fotografía, para saber que estás bien” es lo que le dice a Matilda. “Mi reacción a la que va a ser su reacción a ella”, dice Williams. “Es un modelo bien para que ella vea que su mamá tiene límites. Está bien que me enojara y elevar mi voz. Pero es una lucha constante. Es difícil ser el hombre y la mujer de que [paparazzi] situación. Heath siempre solía hacer por nosotros. “Cuando le pregunto cómo Estabrook su amigo ha cambiado en los últimos dieciocho meses, contestó:” Ha habido un endurecimiento necesario, pero lamentable. Pero ella rompió en una filosofía: Hará lo que sea necesario Matilda dar una vida tan normal como sea posible. ”

Jack Nicholson “Furioso” con el Joker de Heath Ledger


MTV: What do you think of another actor, Heath Ledger, playing the Joker in next summer’s “The Dark Knight”?

Nicholson: Let me be the way I’m not in interviews. I’m furious. I’m furious. [He laughs.] They never asked me about a sequel with the Joker. I know how to do that! Nobody ever asked me.

MTV: It was never brought up?

Nicholson: No. It’s like, in any area, you can’t believe the reasons things do or don’t happen. Not asking me how to do the sequel is that kind of thing. Maybe it’s not a mistake. Maybe it was the right thing, but to be candid, I’m furious.

MTV: I’m surprised to hear you sounding competitive about a role like that.

Nicholson: Well, the Joker comes from my childhood. That’s how I got involved with it in the first place. It’s a part I always thought I should play.

MTV: Will you see the new film?

Nicholson: I’m not inclined to watch it because of what I said. But if it’s a good movie, I’ll catch up with it somewhere. I don’t think they ever really captured Tim Burton’s spirit [since he stopped being involved]. They kind of drove the franchise into the ground. Tim Burton’s a genius. He had the right take on it. That’s why I did the movie. I did the movie based on a single conversation with him. We both come from the cartoon world originally. We had similar ideas. Tim said [the Joker] should have a humorous dark side to him. [Burton is] one of the great moviemakers. I think the world of him. He’s the most unassuming man. And he doesn’t feel pressure. That’s what I love about him. Once he’s in there, he’s smiling making the movie. That’s it!




MTV: ¿Qué piensa de otro actor, Heath Ledger, jugando el Joker en el próximo verano “El Caballero Oscuro”?

Nicholson: Quiero ser la manera en que yo no estoy en las entrevistas. Estoy furioso. Estoy furioso. [Se ríe.] Nunca me ha preguntado por una secuela con el comodín. Sé cómo hacerlo! Nadie nunca me pidió.

MTV: Nunca fue criado?

Nicholson: No Es como, en cualquier área, no se puede creer las razones de las cosas o no suceder. No me pide la forma de hacer la secuela es que tipo de cosas.Tal vez no es un error. Tal vez fue lo correcto, sino que se sincero, estoy furioso.

MTV: Estoy sorprendido de escuchar que suena competitiva sobre un papel así.

Nicholson: Bueno, el Joker viene de mi infancia. Así es como he empezado a participar con ella en el primer lugar. Es una parte que yo siempre pensé que debería desempeñar.

MTV: ¿Va a ver la nueva película?

Nicholson: No estoy inclinado a ver, porque de lo que he dicho. Pero si es una buena película, voy a ponerse al día con él en alguna parte. No creo que realmente nunca capturado Tim Burton del espíritu [desde que dejó de ser involucrados]. Se llevó a tipo de la franquicia en la tierra. Tim Burton es un genio. Él tenía el derecho a adoptar. Es por eso que hice la película. Hice la película basada en una sola conversación con él. Ambos proceden de los dibujos animados mundo originalmente. Hemos tenido ideas similares. Tim dijo [el Joker] debe tener un sentido del humor lado oscuro para él. [Burton es] un gran cineastas. Creo que el mundo de él. Él es el hombre más unassuming. Y él no se siente la presión. Eso es lo que me gusta de él. Una vez que está allí, está sonriendo hacer la película. Eso es todo!
