Yesterday Michelle Williams looked colorful in Vogue and she continues to look precious, this time in lots of stripes in a cute photoshoot in Elle. Even when she's not talking about her heartbreak, it's still pretty sad to read all of her pre-Heath interviews. This time around she gets profound about water, talks about bobby pins and best of all — says that she can still find happiness in the darkest times. Here are highlights:
- "I’m obsessed with water. The scene in Brokeback Mountain when I open the door and see Heath and Jake kiss? Everyone was outside and I was in this hallway by myself, and I just kept thinking, I want to be like water. I want to slip through fingers, but hold up a ship.”
- “There's nothing sexier than bobby pins. That moment in Lolita, when Humbert Humbert is driving into the cow pasture and fingering the bobby pin? Goose bumps!”
- “I'm always aware of the whole. I have that feeling inside, like when something really tickles or delights me—it's not singular. I recognize all the awful things in the world, and in spite of them, I can still laugh.”
Of course Michelle had no idea how meaningful her words would be just a few months after speaking them, but we hope that she can still stay true to herself after Heath's death. Having adorable little Matilda is a saving grace, too. To see a video of Michelle behind the scenes on her photoshoot, click here.
