Heath Ledger, who plays The Joker in the upcoming Batman: The Dark Knight, has split from his wife Michelle Williams after three years of marriage. According to People:
“It was rocky for awhile,” says a source close to the couple. “They did what they could to make it work.”
The source says the split was amicable.
The pair, who welcomed daughter Matilda in October 2005, met while they were filming Brokeback Mountain in 2004.
Costars say the chemistry was obvious from the start. “I remember being in rehearsal, and the two of them had googly eyes with each other,” costar Jake Gyllenhaal said of the couple. “There were sparks immediately,” added costar Anne Hathaway. “It was adorable.”
I was sorry to hear of the couple’s split, especially with a young child in the mix, but considering Williams isn’t a cowboy I’m not terribly surprised.
