Michelle Williams might seem like she has it all together, but she’ll be the first to tell you — she doesn’t. The actress and mom to 7-year-old Matilda just reportedly ended her relationship with actor Jason Segel, but her career is hitting high notes with her latest movie, Oz the Great and Powerful in theaters this week.
Michelle tells The Stir that regardless of how it might look, she feels like she hasn’t figured it all out just yet — work or motherhood. “It’s like an Olympian undertaking!” says Michelle. “... It’s not possible to do both things well at the same time, especially not if you are exacting, and maybe a Virgo, and you know, really critical, and ask a lot of yourself. But I think every mother that I know asks a lot of themselves... it’s always gonna be a give and take.”
We think the blonde beauty is selling herself short, but the Oscar-nominated star sees it differently. She even says she turns to mom blogs for the answers.
”I never really posted anything on a blog because I don’t really know how to, but I think every mother has the same question that we were all asking,” she says. “Like, how do you do it? How do you be a mom, and a parent, and maybe even try and be in a relationship, and the end, also be… be yourself. How do you make all of that work? Providing this kind of conversation about it and this kind of access to it is awesome.”
