Well, as summer exits, this always happens. People break up left and right, famous or not. The newest star couple to split is Michelle Williams and director Spike Jonze, which is kind of a bummer because I think we were all hoping that Michelle was moving on post-Heath Ledger in a healthy way. However, as she says in the October issue of Vogue, moving on felt anything but healthy, “The timing was impossible. I thought falling in love again was the only thing that was going to save me from the pain. This erroneous idea: It just makes things more complicated.”
What makes this even more sad it that her grieving process has been quite long and started even before Heath passed away. It’s been said that the only reason why the two broke up in the first place was because Michelle couldn’t watch his life-ruining drug use anymore. She goes on to say in the Vogue article “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 … 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.”
What do you even say about that? I hope that Michelle is able to find some happiness soon.
