London, September 17 (ANI): Michelle Williams has revealed that gardening helped her cope with the death of her former fiance Heath Ledger.
The actress gave birth to the late star’s daughter Matilda, who was just 2 years old when Ledger died last year of an accidental drug overdose.
The Brokeback Mountain star, who had parted ways from Ledger months before his death, said planting new life in her garden at home helped her gain strength to deal with the grief.
“My friends never really left me alone when we came up here. One got me gardening in the spring and that’s when it all turned around,” the Daily Express quoted her as telling Vogue magazine.
“I remember being on my hands and knees. The ground was cold and muddy. I pushed back the dead leaves and saw green shoots of spring.
“Under all this decay something was growing. Caring for the garden reminded me to care for myself,” she added. (ANI)
