Los Angeles: “Shutter Island” fame actress Michelle Williams revealed she has secretly married musician Phil Elverum.
In an interview with Vanity Fair, the former lady love of late actor Heath Ledger disclosed that the wedding was a secret ceremony with friends and family in attendance in Adirondacks, reports people.com
The 37-year-old actress has a 12-year-old daughter, Matilda, with Ledger.
Elverum is father to a 3-year-old from his marriage to Genevieve Castree, who died of pancreatic cancer in 2015.
Talking about her husband, the actress said: “Obviously I’ve never once in my life talked about a relationship, but Phil isn’t anyone else. The way he loves me is the way I want to live my life on the whole. I work to be free inside of the moment. I parent to let Matilda feel free to be herself, and I am finally loved by someone who makes me feel free.”
Ledger died in New York City in 2008 after taking a fatal mix of prescription drugs.
They had dated for three years after meeting on the set of their 2005 film “Brokeback Mountain”.
“I never gave up on love. I always say to Matilda, ‘Your dad loved me before anybody thought I was talented, or pretty, or had nice clothes’,” added Williams.
