Michelle Williams shimmers in Cannes in first big public appearance since Heath Ledger’s tragic death.
Having fun with her co-stars on the Riviera, Michelle Williams proved life goes on after the death of Heath Ledger.Promoting her new film “Synecdoche New York”, the actress laughed alongside Philip Seymour Hoffman, Catherine Keener and Samantha Morton.
Despite the tragic death of her ex-fiance, Michelle has looked nothing but flawless since she arrived in Cannes.
Last night, in her first major public appearance since the death of Heath Ledger in January, Williams lit up the red carpet as she attended the premiere of her new film Wendy And Lucy.
Wearing a gorgeous white gown with shoulder lace trim, Williams looked gorgeous as she smiled and posed for photographers, weeks after the death of her former flame.
The film is set around a woman’s adventures after she breaks down and faces a series of challenges while driving with her dog Lucy to Alaska.
Ledger, who was found dead in his New York apartment in January, died from an accidental overdose of prescription medication.
Although the couple had separated at the time of his death, Williams was left “devasted” over the tragedy.
The couple began dating while filming Brokeback Mountain, and their daughter Matilda Rose was born in October 2005.
In her first public statement on the death in February, she expressed her heartbreak and described her seeing Ledger’s spirit surviving in their daughter.
“I am the mother of the most tender-hearted, high-spirited, beautiful little girl who is the spitting image of her father,” she revealed.
“All that I can cling to is his presence inside her that reveals itself every day,” she said.
“His family and I watch Matilda as she whispers to trees, hugs animals, and takes steps two at a time, and we know that he is with us still.
“She will be brought up in the best memories of him.”
The couple had moved to New York in 2005 and were raising Matilda
before his death and the break up of their relationship.
