Michelle Williams Upset Over 'Devastating' Heath Ledger 'Nightline' Interview

Michelle Williams: Upset Over 'Devastating' Heath Ledger 'Nightline' Interview

Talking about late ex-fiancee is still difficult for Michelle Williams -- especially when her words are manipulated.

Williams spoke about Ledger in a highly publicized 'Nightline' interview last week, and she told The Daily Beast that she isn't pleased about how they presented her words.

"I just had an experience with Nightline that got edited in such a way that seemed as if I did go too far," Williams said. "It was a three-hour interview that was edited in such a way that was devastating to me."

Among a number of other things, Williams said:

"In a strange way, I miss that year, because all those possibilities that existed then are gone. It didn't seem unlikely to me that he could walk through a door or could appear behind a bush. It was a year of very magical thinking, and in some ways I'm sad to be moving further and further away from it."

It was a totally misuse of what she said in the long interview, Williams insists.

"They used those few quotes and the way they edited the piece to sell the interview, and it appeared as if I were breaking some kind of silence and sitting down with the express purpose to discuss something that is very private to me."

Actually, Williams says that she suffered a lot of loss following Ledger's tragic death.

"I experienced a lot of loss after his death," she confided. "I lost my city because of all the paparazzi descending upon us. I actually lost my journal during that time, oddly enough. I literally couldn't hold on to anything. It felt as if things were literally slipping through my fingers."
