Michelle Williams was back in NYC Saturday evening to spend time with her daughter, Matilda Ledger, and her boyfriend, Jason Segel. The trio went to see a matinee of Jersey Boys in Manhattan, then did a bit of shopping before returning to their Brooklyn home. Yesterday, they were out again for breakfast. Jason, Matilda, and Michelle also fit in a walk by the water during the hot and sunny morning. Michelle was off in San Diego for a few days last week to talk about her movie Oz: The Great and Powerful at Comic-Con. We caught a few seconds with Michelle at Comic-Con to get the scoop on her retelling of the classic Wizard of Oz movie. While Michelle was away, Jason and Matilda hung out. They were seen taking walks not far from home, and also getting breakfast in the neighborhood of Red Hook Saturday.
Jason Segel led the way for Matilda Ledger this morning in Red Hook, Brooklyn. The duo snacked on goodies from their Fairway supermarket bag before heading back to the home of Matilda's mom, Michelle Williams, not far away. Jason and Matilda are hanging out in NYC, while Michelle's been busy with work. Michelle went to Comic-Con in San Diego to chat up her new movie Oz: The Great and Powerful alongside her costar Mila Kunis and the picture's director Sam Raimi. Michelle spoke to us on the red carpet before her and Mila's panel to talk about Oz's great message. Michelle, who pays the Good Witch in the new retelling of The Wizard of Oz, said, "It's nice to put a little bit of good back into the world. It's part a family movie, and I was excited to be a part of that."
Jason Segel held hands with Matilda Ledger yesterday while on a stroll in Brooklyn with her nanny. The duo shared smiles and Matilda even showed off some dance moves. It seems Jason's keeping an eye on his girlfriend's daughter for the time being. Michelle's expected in San Diego today to take part in a Comic-Con press event for her upcoming film Oz: The Great and Powerful. Michelle will attend alongside her costar Mila Kunis — we're on the scene in Southern California, so make sure to check back for frequent updates. Jason just wrapped up a period of his own business travel. He was in Europe last month doing an overseas tour for his film The Five-Year Engagement. He made stops in Dublin, Hamburg, and London before returning to NYC and his girls. Michelle Williams and Jason Segel spent time together in her neighborhood, and he also supported her at her Big Apple premiere of Take This Waltz.
Michelle Williams and Matilda Ledger were out and about together in Brooklyn this weekend. On Saturday, Matilda rode her scooter alongside Michelle as they ran errands and yesterday morning they were back out to pick up coffee and groceries. There was no sign of Michelle's new love interest, Jason Segel, after he was first spotted with the Williams-Ledger ladies in their neighborhood late last month. It doesn't seem like Michelle was far from Jason's mind though, since he was spotted carrying an iPhone case featuring a picture of Michelle and the words "I love you" around LA.
Michelle Williams followed behind as Matilda took a ride on her scooter in Brooklyn Monday. The girls got back to business this week after an apparently exciting weekend. They had the company of Jason Segel, who reportedly stayed at Michelle's Boerum Hill home. Michelle and Jason were spotted cozying up during a Saturday night dinner date at Frankie's and he was also seen on the streets of Brooklyn with Matilda on Sunday. Rumors that Michelle and Jason were dating started last month, when the duo were seen together at the Chateau Marmont, though neither party has commented on the relationship.
Michelle Williams was back to mommy duty yesterday as she picked up her daughter Matilda Ledger from a playdate in the suburbs of LA. On Sunday, Michelle attended the Academy Awards with her friend Busy Philipps as her date. Michelle had already snagged a Golden Globe this year, and was nominated for best actress for her portrayal of Marilyn Monroe in My Week With Marilyn. Michelle didn't take home the Oscar — the win was reserved for The Iron Lady's Meryl Streep — but she nonetheless made a major impact on the red carpet in her Louis Vuitton gown. The actress was one of your picks for best dressed at the Oscars in the bright coral design.
This weekend marked the end of a busy award season for Michelle, who either won or was nominated for more than two-dozen honors for her latest role. Michelle frequently used her acceptance speeches to speak about her love for her 6-year-old daughter, calling out her "bravery" and "exuberance" as her biggest inspirations in both her life and work.
OK, the 5-year-old daughter of Michelle Williams and the late Heath Ledger did not say that per se, but she did ask a Disney employee one pointed question during a trip to Disney World. In the February issue of Marie Claire, Michelle tells a sweet story about her daughter, an avid consumer of the controversial princess culture like all little girls.
"I took Matilda to Disney World recently and we saw all the princesses, and then she turned around and said, 'OK, now I'd like to see where all the princes are.' The Disney person said, 'Nobody has ever asked me that before. There aren't any princes here, honey.'"
I never thought of that, yet it seems so obvious. And when you think about it — don't all Disney princes kind of seem like the same generic guy? Disney clearly knows its audience. Next time, Matilda, to really shake things up, ask Disney where the overweight princesses are!
Dawson's Creek costars and best friends Michelle Williams and Busy Philipps brought their daughters, Matilda and Birdie, out for brunch in LA on Saturday. The actresses met on the set of the TV show and have remained close, with Michelle even asking Busy to be Matilda's godmother. Four-year-old Matilda and 2-year-old Birdie are carrying on the tradition already as they playfully swung in the air and climbed around during their trip to pick up flowers at the supermarket. Michelle has been out promoting Blue Valentine, and at an event on Thursday she revealed that Busy was her moral support during difficult parts of filming. Busy also attended Michelle's LA screening hosted by Matilda's other godparent, Jake Gyllenhaal, and the intense role just earned both Williams and Ryan Gosling Critics' Choice Awards nominations. The Cougar Town star still has high hopes that Williams will find a way to guest star on the series, and we'd love to see Michelle show off her comedy skills too.
At the NY premiere of Blue Valentine, Ryan Gosling says he thinks highly of Michelle Williams's motherly ways and he and his costar tried to act as much like a family as possible when they lived together for the film. Meanwhile, Blue Valentine scored big today when the Weinsteins' appeal was unanimously accepted and the movie's rating was changed from NC-17 to R. Check it out on PopSugar Rush!
