actress had to share: On being a single mom to daughter Matilda with the late Heath Ledger: “I know a handful of women in similar positions [to me], it’s kind of like a club. My friend Busy [Phillips] and her husband Marc [Silverstein] said, ‘Michelle, you’re in like a blackout zone, everybody is now partnered up and you have to wait for people to start getting divorced.’ Oh my f*cking God…” On getting into the dating scene: “Talk about a learning process. I feel really sensitive about it and certainly did not expect to be still dating at 36 with an 11-year-old. I went back into the house and sobbed because of this incredibly simple moment – common everyday happiness.It’s a sh*tty club and we don’t want any new members… I really felt like in that moment, like wow, we’ve done it. Life has brought us to a place that’s not just surviving, but thriving.” For more from Michelle, visit
