Michelle Williams on Being a Single Mom in Show Business: I’m Exhausted!

03/03/2015 at 04:00 PM ET

Oscar-nominated actress and full-time mother Michelle Williams has it all … besides a good night’s sleep.

“I feel like I’m so good at raising a kid when I’m not working. I don’t forget anything. I’ve got everything covered,” she says in the April issue of ELLE UK, on stands March 5.

“It’s a real luxury to have a moment when I’m not scrambling. I feel like most of my life, I’m trying to do two things at once, both to the best of my abilities. So that leaves me feeling pretty exhausted.”

The star — who is raising 9-year-old Matilda Rose, her daughter with the late Heath Ledger — has even gained a reputation among her friends for being tired.

“I’m the person who falls asleep all the time,” she tells the magazine. “You invite me over for dinner or to a party, and there’s a whole scrapbook of pictures of me napping. I’ve even been given a nickname because of my snoring.”

But it’s no secret that Matilda admires Williams’s work.

“She’s starting to understand more and more. She knows a lot about Glinda the Good Witch, a lot about who that is, what that was,” the actress shared recently.

She may not know the extent of the actress’s fame, but Matilda Rose is well aware of mom Michelle Williams‘ recent role in Oz, the Great and Powerful.

“She’s starting to understand more and more. She knows a lot about Glinda the Good Witch, a lot about who that is, what that was,” Williams, 33, told The New Yorker‘s David Denby during the New Yorker Festival at the School of Visual Arts Theater on Saturday.

Matilda — who wants to step into Glinda’s sparkling slippers for Halloween — has no problem sharing Williams’ onscreen success with her playground pals.

“She would go up to people in the park and say, ‘My mommy is Glinda the Good Witch in Oz. There’s two bad ones and only one good one and that’s my mom,'” says Williams.
