Michelle Williams, Heath Ledger’s baby mama, made her first red carpet appearance since Heath Ledger’s tragic death back in January. It was a last minute decision for Michelle, but she graced the red carpet at Cannes in France in celebration of two films she worked on for the festival.
According to a source, “It was decided on Monday night that she could come to Cannes, and she got on the next plane to arrive just in time to get dressed and come to our premiere,” said a rep for Wendy and Lucy. “She came in and had a long nap and then came to the screening.”
Williams, 27, was radiant in a vintage Chanel Haute Couture dress. She will remain in Cannes at least through Friday night to promote another festival movie in which she appears, Synecdoche, New York, before flying back to the United States to resume filming a Martin Scorsese movie in Boston.
