Michelle Williams has been raising daughter Matilda, now 5 mostly as a single parent, and found herself discussing how difficult that was with Reese Witherspoon. In an interview with Marie Claire magazine, Williams revealed that Witherspoon shed a little perspective on the situation for her;
“To give credit where credit is due, I was sharing a difficulty I was experiencing with Reese Witherspoon, and she said, ‘Yes, I understand, but think about how much more difficult this would be without the luxury of a reliable, steady income.”
Well that’s the truth! I often wonder how single parents who have to work full time do it – it’s such a hard job! It’s nice to see that they both realize that they are fortunate enough to have the income to help them out! Michelle went on to say that;
“When things are difficult for me as a single parent, I always reflect on how much harder it would be if I didn’t have money—if I couldn’t afford a babysitter to go to yoga class or out to dinner with a girlfriend.”
Michelle is getting rave reviews for her performance in Blue Valentine – have you seen it yet?
