The eloquent Michelle Williams is finally ready to talk about Heath Ledger, giving a rare interview about her ex-boyfriend's death.
"It didn't seem unlikely to me that he could walk through a door or could appear behind a bush," Williams said in an interview with Nightline of the time following Ledger's death, "It was a year of very magical thinking, and in some ways I'm sad to be moving further and further away from it."
"I've found meanings around the circumstance, but the actual event itself still doesn't..." she continues, "I can't find a meaning for it. I can find meanings in things and people and relationships that have sprung up, and friendships that have strengthened. I can find a lot of meaning in that, but not in why."
"There's a line from a book that gave me so much comfort and it said, 'When you've truly lost everything, then at least you can become rich in loss.'"
Williams dated Ledger for three years after co-starring in "Brokeback Mountain" together. They had a daughter together, Matilda. Watch the entire Nightline interview below.
