Michelle Williams, 33, is single mom to Matilda, 6 — her daughter with the late Heath Ledger. We love how Michelle praised Matilda in her Golden Globe award acceptance speech earlier this year:
I consider myself a mother first and an actress second. So the person I most want to thank is my daughter, my little girl, whose bravery and exuberance is the example that I take with me in my work and in my life.... Thank you...for suffering through six months of bedtime stories where all the princesses were read aloud in a Marilyn Monroe sounding voice.
Happily, Michelle's now in a committed relationship with funny actor, Jason Segel.
