Washington, Sep 9 : Hollywood actress Michelle Williams has revealed that she will be taking a year off from acting to grieve over ex- fiance Heath Ledger's death and spend adequate time with their daughter, Matilda.
The 28-year-old, who resumed acting shortly after a brief break following Ledger's death, admits that her time-consuming career has left her mentally exhausted.
"I'm going to take a year off. I think I stopped feeling creative a while ago, and I'm just realising it now." Contactmusic quoted Williams, as telling New York Times.
"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," she added.
The 'Mammoth' actress, who wants to work in lighthearted comedy flicks after her time off, intends to use her time productively and devote appropriate time to her 3-year-old daughter
"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," she said.
