Michelle Williams to take break from HollywoodSeptember 9th, 2008 - 11:42 pm ICT by IANS
New York, Sep 9 (IANS) Hollywood actress Michelle Williams is taking a year off from acting, so she can properly grieve over the loss of ex-fiancé Heath Ledger and dedicate her time to their daughter Matilda.Williams took a brief break after Ledger’s death January from an accidental drug overdose, reports Hollywood.com.
She admits combining a busy work schedule with being a full-time mom has left her mentally exhausted.
“I’m going to take a year off. I think I stopped feeling creative a while ago and I’m just realizing it now,” she told New York Times.
The actress plans to use her time productively by spending time with Matilda, 3, and learning a new hobby.
“I want to humble myself. I like how really physical work can free your mind,” she added.
Williams wants to star in a lighthearted project after her sabbatical.
She said: “When I work again, maybe it should be a comedy. I’ve always had a tendency for darker, more lifelike material. I think I had this sense that important things are heavier things. I don’t know if that’s true anymore.”
