Williams, 37, who is known for her preservation of her privacy, has an in-depth interview with Vanity Fair published on Thursday. Williams was talked about a range of topics, from her secret marriage with the indie-musician Phil Elverum and the report that her “All the Money in the World” co-star Mark Wahlberg had paid 1000 times more than it was for the movie reshoots. Wahlberg donated his $1.5 million salary to the Time’s Up Legal Defense Fund in Williams’ name.

However, the Academy Award-nominated actress choked up when talking about her deceased partner’s general Ledger and their daughter.


“I never gave up on love,” Williams told Vanity Fair.

The “Poison” star said she’s over 10 years since the “Dark Knight” star is dead “are looking for the kind of radical acceptance” she felt from him.

“I always say to Matilda,” Your father loved me, before someone thought I was talented, or pretty, or had nice clothes,'” Williams said, her voice cracked.

Williams said that they believed that they found love again with Elverum.


“Of course, I’ve never once in my life spoken about a relationship, but Phil is not someone else,” Williams explained. “And that is worth something. Ultimately, it is the way he loves me, the way I want to live my life on the whole. I work freely in the moment. I parent Mathilde feel free to be themselves, and I am loved by someone who I feel free.”

Williams opened up about raising Matilda as a single mother.
