Michelle on Motherhood

Michelle's career is certainly taking off these days. The young mom has six films in the works! She's working with some of Hollywood's most respected directors and writers like Spike Jonze and Charlie Kaufman. Still, she's not letting it go to her head. Michelle knows what counts most in her life and that's her 1 year old daughter Matilda. While she may have had her baby at a younger age than most of her friends, she tells Nylon magazine that she wouldn't have had it any other way. She says:

"I always sort of imagined I would be a young mother. Kids just bring such a natural order to your life. I used to have all these questions that felt like they would never be answered. I'd agonize myself with them. You know, "What am I going to do with my time? Who will I be with? Will I wind up alone? And having Matilda, I don't plague myself anymore. I know what life is like. For the next 18 years, I'm devoted to somebody's welfare. It took all that noise out of my head."

She adds, "It wasn't that long ago that I was sleeping until noon and not doing anything all day. Literally nothing. And now my life's not going to be like that again. I think about it when I go out with my friends for a night and, you know, 10 or 11 o'clock rolls around, and I look around the table and think, 'Wow, I'm the only person here who has a kid, I'm the only person who has to go home now to get up by six to function for the rest of the day. "

She also said, "I feel like maybe having kids young is going to come back in vogue."

Just as long as you don't have them too young! For more pics of Michelle in Nylon just

QT, I think she must feel like having children is glamourous because she probably never has to actually change diapers or wake up at 3 AM with the baby, she has some minion to do things like that for her. ______________________________________________________ ~Love is composed of a single soul inhabiting two bodies.~

She wasn't great on "Dawson's Creek" but she was just starting out then. She was FANTASTIC in "Brokeback Mountain," though.

I don't even think she's a good actress...has anyone SEEN Dawson's Creek?!? I didn't think any of them were good. Anyway, having children at any age is never a "style" to be in. What a loser. And does anyone think it sounds like she's complaining a bit about having to turn in early, or like she's so great because she's the only one at her table who has responsibility?!? Whatever.

Omg im 24 with 3 kids. A 7 year old and twin 2 year olds...do I feel in fashion because I have kids? No, its called being a mom and a wife, doesnt matter who likes it, that's life. No one runs out and gets pregnant because its the thing to do.

she looks wonderful, i feel like she's really come into her own with the way she looks.... 25 seems too young to have kids, but that;s just for me! i can barely take care of myself and my cat! my mom had both me and my sister by the time she was 20 and she's the best mommy ever! so it's very personal, i think

she looks amazing in that gold-ish outfit! I don't think she & Kat(i)e have much in common at all. for one, Michelle can actually act! I like her b/c she is very self-confident & self-aware (unlike Kat(i)e)

I think she meant young as in not waiting until you're 40 to have babies.

She looks really pretty here. I feel like age itself doesn't have much to do with being ready for a child. Some 25 year olds I know would be great parents, and some 50 year olds just don't have a clue. It's about your maturity and ability to devote your life to the child. IMO at least.

I didn't even recognize her. I was like 'who is this michelle person!?' If she's 26 and had her kid at 25...that's not young for child bearing age. Here I was thinking she had her at like 17 or something. I'm only 21 and I can count about 10 friends my age or younger with children and/or pregnant. 25 is nothing.

She is so cute, but would it kill her to smile once in a while? I bet their daughter is going to be so gorgeous when she grows up. ~Love is composed of a single soul inhabiting two bodies.~

Wasn't she friends with Katie..doesn't it seem like they should still be friends..so much in common..both were on the same TV series, both segway into film, both have children out of wedlock... yet nothing. Tinay Tom must have an incredible power over Katie. And why since Dawson's Creek does Michelle have to make herself out as the introverted, self suffering, mousy wife mother act..like her role in Brokeback was really her? ______________________________________________________ I believe in the power of BAMZS

LOVE the av twink! :ROTFL: I think what Michelle meant about having kids young being in vogue is that lots of celebrities ARE having kids younger, ala Britney Spears. Anyways, she's not that young is she? I thought she was about the same age as Katie Holmes? I also wana have a kid now dammit! :D

i guess u can never understand what having children means until u have them for yourself. Hearing what she is saying about her daughter makes me wanna have a child right now!!!

She's not nice...she closed a supportive fansite thanks to her lawyers because she was not happy with the pics or whatever....the webmistress who was/is a fan (obviously) was very disappointed.

I recently saw her on an episode of Dawsons Creek- she does not even look like the same person to me. She is very pretty and does make good choices in what movies she is in. But her having kids young coming in vogue comment was just stupidity...its not like she had her daughter at 18. I dont have a kid but I always have to go home early because I get up at 5:30 for classes- so Michelle you are not alone :OY: I like to go to overseas places- like Canada! -Britney Spears
Twinkle1 Twinkle1 10 years
