Has Michelle Williams found love again? The former “Dawson’s Creek” star was devastated when ex-fiance and baby-daddy Heath Ledger died in January. But now that the mom of Matilda, 2, has quietly started seeing director Spike Jonze, she finally seems to be getting her groove back.
“Michelle is starting to have her old glow back,” a source confided to OK! magazine. “It’s the Michelle we were used to seeing when she and Heath just had Matilda and they were on cloud nine. Her eyes light up again. She’s finally coming out of the shock of losing Heath.”
The Brooklyn-based actress maintains a low-key, limelight-shunning life, and it seems that Spike (despite having such high-powered Hollywood types as Drew Barrymore and Sofia Coppola for exes) fits right in. He was recently seen at a Brooklyn deli picking up a toothbrush and toothpaste (musts for new-relationship sleepovers, natch), eggs, and pancake mix, a local source told the tabloid.
“Spike said he was visiting his girlfriend and just needed to get a few odds and ends,” recalled the onlooker. “They were going to try and make breakfast for her daughter.” Awww — too sweet! Let’s hope Michelle has found the happiness she deserves.
Speaking of “Dawson’s Creek” alums: Is Katie Holmes expecting a sibling for Suri? Recent sightings of the waiflike actress (and, as you may have heard, wife of Tom Cruise) have given rise to speculation that she’s expecting her second child.
Katie, currently in NYC to rehearse for her Broadway debut in “All My Sons” (curiously, we’ve heard no reports of her getting together with her erstwhile TV co-star Michelle to catch up), was sighted in a gray T-shirt and her lately ubiquitous baggy jeans, with what the New York Daily News cautiously dubbed a potential baby bump.
Although we’re over the celebrity baby boom, we really, really hope Katie is indeed pregnant. There’s simply no other justifiable explanation for those hideous jeans.
Six years after his divorce from Kim Basinger, Alec Baldwin is apparently still bitter. The dad of Ireland, 12 — who infamously chewed out his daughter in a voicemail last year, then claimed it was really Kim he was frustrated with — asked the New Yorker, “Think I’m walking stiffly? Yeah, there’s a 120-pound actress on my back.”
Along with claiming that Kim is trying to alienate him from Ireland, Alec says, in an interview excerpt published in Page Six, that she harbored irrational fears of him after their split. While they toured a house for him to rent, Alec urged Kim to check out the cliffside view, saying she had “got to come over here and look at this!’ She said, ‘No, no, come back, we’ve got to go. We’re late.’ And then I thought, ‘She thinks I’m going to throw her off this cliff!’” And we thought the Charlie Sheen vs. Denise Richards post-divorce war was bad.
So much for the truce between Lindsay Lohan and father Michael. The once estranged, then reconciled duo had another falling-out last week when Michael accused LiLo’s inseparable gal-pal Samantha Ronson of using her for publicity.
But after his father, Richard, died Thursday, Michael claimed that Lindsay reached out to him. Maybe not so much. Michael used the sad occasion of his father’s passing to blast ex-wife Dina, fuming to reporters, “Let’s see if she has the decency and respect to bring my kids to the wake and funeral. This will show her true colors!”
But, the U.K.’s Sun reports, during Lindsay’s grandfather’s wake in nearby Long Island, she was shopping in NYC with — you guessed it — Sam. When is Michael going to learn to keep his mouth shut?
