Speaking with The Daily Beast, Williams says the feature was never intended to focus on Ledger’s 2008 passing.
“It was a three-hour interview that was edited in such a way that was devastating to me,” she says. “They used those few quotes and the way they edited the piece to sell
the interview, and it appeared as if I were breaking some kind of
silence and sitting down with the express purpose to discuss something
that is very private to me.”
How she managed to linger so much on the subject is something Williams also recognizes as slightly her own fault.
“I am still such the-good-girl,” says Williams. “I want everybody to like me. I want
everybody to be happy. I want to please people. So that desire in the
moment overrode that ‘me’ that is on top of myself, that ‘me’ that is on
top of a situation.”
