Single Mom Michelle Williams Feels “Pretty Exhausted”


Actress Michelle Williams covers the April issue of Elle U.K. and opens up about raising 8-year-old daughter Matilda as a single mom, which leaves her “feeling pretty exhausted.”

On being a single mom: “I feel like I’m so good at raising a kid when I’m not working. I don’t forget anything. I’ve got everything covered. It’s a real luxury to have a moment when I’m not scrambling. I feel like most of my life, I’m trying to do two things at once, both to the best of my abilities.”

On “feeling pretty exhausted” a lot of the time: “I’m the person who falls asleep all the time. You invite me over for dinner or to a party, and there’s a whole scrapbook of pictures of me napping. I’ve even been given a nickname because of my snoring.”

On reading poetry: “I love poetry because it’s like a shot, like an attack, like a dose. And for a person who doesn’t have very much free time, it does its work very quickly. So I read poems on my phone when I wake up in the morning. It opens you up for the rest of the day, and suddenly your life becomes a little more observed. And when it becomes more observed, it can’t help but start to become more beautiful.”
