Williams Takes A Year Off From Hollywood

MICHELLE WILLIAMS is taking a year off from acting, so she can properly grieve over the loss of ex-fiance HEATH LEDGER and dedicate her time to their daughter MATILDA.
Williams took just a brief break after Ledger's death in January (08) from an accidental drug overdose.
And she admits combining a busy work schedule with being a full-time mum has left her mentally exhausted.
The 28-year-old tells the New York Times, "I'm going to take a year off. I think I stopped feeling creative a while ago, and I'm just realising it now.
"I used to have all the time in the world to daydream and even just to dream and let your unconscious do some of the work for you. Now I'm up at five in the morning and I don't remember what I dreamed about."
And she plans to use her time productively; spending time with Matilda, three, and learning a new hobby: "I want to humble myself in front of a task life embroidery. I like how really physical work can free your mind."
When Williams returns to work, she wants to star in a light-hearted project. She adds, "When I work again, maybe it should be a comedy. I've always had a tendency for darker, more life-life material. I think I had this sense that important things are heavier things. I don't know if that's true any more."
