Michelle Williams - Michelle Williams 'Lucky' To Have Survived Hollywood

Michelle Williams feels "lucky" to have survived Hollywood with her "sanity" intact.

The former 'Dawson's Creek' actress moved to Los Angeles when she was 16 and admits it was a crazy place to grow up and is grateful she didn't come off the rails like many other young stars.

Michelle, now 31, said: "I am lucky. I lived in Hollywood during my late teens and managed to escape with my sanity. But would I recommend it to any 18 year old? No, I would not.

"I wish I had known I wasn't ready for it. I was with crazy friends going to clubs and chasing what he thought Hollywood was all about. I moved there at just 16 and found it a place with no boundaries. There were no limits, no rules and it was dangerous.

"I compare it to a bowling alley, with lanes and partitions. You have to work out the stuff you will do - and stuff you won't. I veered crazily across the lanes but never ended up in the gutter."

Michelle - who now lives in New York with her five-year-old daughter, Matilda, whose father is the late Heath Ledger -doesn't blame her parents for allowing her to move to Hollywood but wishes she had got an education first.

She told The Sun newspaper: "It was weird and insidious. I never really knew who I was with, who I had been with and what was in my glass. I did not know what I was doing.

"I don't blame my parents. They wanted what was best for me and I insisted that this is what I wanted. But I never got an education, which I wish I had at 18."
