Michelle Williams livid over paparazzis intrusion after Ledgers deathNovember 22nd, 2008 - 5:00 pm ICT by ANI
Washington, Nov 22 (ANI): Actress Michelle Williams has slammed paparazzi for not letting her grieve in peace after the death of her ex-boyfriend Heath Ledger.
In her first in-depth interview to Newsweek magazine, the Brokeback Mountain star has said that she wont forgive and forget the disrespectful snappers who made her life a living hell in the past year.
Williams pointed out that the constant prying on her young daughter Matilda by some photographers was what disturbed her the most.
“It burns a fire inside of me, the s**t that I”ve seen people do to get at me or my daughter. I won”t forget it, and I won”t support it. I don”t want my daughter growing up feeling spied on or threatened, Contactmusic quoted her as saying.
And there was one instance when Williams got livid on meeting an over-zealous female paparazzo.
She explained: “I said, ”You”re better than this. Look at you! You”re young, you”re able-bodied, you have a brightness in your eyes. You”re above this.” But you know what? She didn”t go away.”
And she is so upset with the breach of privacy that she is seriously considering leaving her home in New York - and walking away from her acting career.
She said: “If it gets to the point where I can”t situate my life in a way that they stay away more, then I”ll drop a match on the thing.
“I”ll be sad. I like to act. It’’s saved my life over and over again. It’’s given me a sense of self-esteem, self-worth. I have this thing that I”m in love with… and now it has this baggage.” (ANI)
